  1. Hi there

    This is my first post and I am new to all this.

    I have a pop-up that will not go away when I connect with the internet using IE.

    When I use the windows task manager and look at processes there is the following: trackurl.exe

    Can anyone help me remove this please.

    Welcome to Techspot!

    Your computer is infected with spyware/adware which is causing the popup to appear. First off, download Ad-Aware, Ewido , and Spybot S&D. Make sure that your definitions files are up-to-date, then run scans.
    Report your results back.
