  1. Please could someone help me get rid of some pornographic pop-ups that I get when in IE. It appears that there are quite a few others with the same problem here. I have a 10 year old daughter who I daren't let go on the internet at the moment! There appears to be 2 different ones; one that uses a process called "trackurl.exe" and another using a process "rssfeed.exe". There are also some dial up connections boxes that occasionally come on screen which may or may not be connected. I have attached my hyjackthis file.

    Thanks in advance.

    download mozilla firefox for starters its free and way better and more secure than IE. It has a good popup blocker as well

    are your service packs updated?

    Turn off instant messanging.

    Thanks. I have downloaded Mozilla Firefox which gets rid of the pop-up window, but this does seem to be by-passing the problem rather than fixing it! At least my daughter can now use the internet again. As far as I know my service pack is up to date. I am running XP Service Pack 2 which is set to automatically update and messenger is turned off. This problem has been around for a few months now.

    then you have some kind of adware/bloatware/spyware.

    Not every spyware program catches everything.
