    Unwanted websites pop up in Internet Explorer
    « on: September 20, 2009, 07:22:19 AM »
    When we use Internet Explorer 8 even though we have the pop up blocker turned on websites keep popping up in new browser windows.  The pop up blocker appears to be working (it blocks pop ups from the sites we are on) but these are new browser windows that randomly open.  We've run antispyware and antivirus software but the problem still continues.  Help! ???
