Ad-Watch is giving me problems!

  1. Hi

    Recently I have had an annoying problem. For some reason or other, my Ad-Watch keeps blocking my internet explorer page randomly (my home page is about:blank)

    When I look at the log, it states the following:

    07-04-10 02:27:48 - Popup blocked (Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File - Windows Internet Explorer)
    Browser event
    Parentprocess:
    "Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File - Windows Internet Explorer"
    Handle:500039680
    Classname:IEFrame

    07-04-10 02:27:48: Popup blocked "Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File - Windows Internet Explorer"

    ===============================================

    OR

    07-04-10 02:36:20 - Popup blocked (Blank Page - Windows Internet Explorer)
    Browser event
    Parentprocess:
    "Blank Page - Windows Internet Explorer"
    Handle:97386496
    Classname:IEFrame

    07-04-10 02:36:20: Popup blocked "Blank Page - Windows Internet Explorer"

    I have no idea what this means. But I do know my system is free from malware (I have just cleaned it recently) Apparently it only attempts to close my browser roughly 50% of the time. But its still enough to be dreadfully annoying.

    Thanks for any help. Its greatly appreciated.

    Disable Adwatch, it seems very good at finding false positives and causing problems.

    Regards Howard :)
