Help
Sometimes but not always when i open internet browser or move between sites an adaware browser is opened. This didnt bother me at 1st, now its doing my head in.
My ntl antivirus protection cant find it as i guess it must look like a lagitimate program.
Any ideas

Any chance of a screenshot of the browser you're getting?

Not sure how to upload a photo but have just saved one to my desktop, it saved as "subsite_uk_feb_6". There are no tool bar options to these explorer windows.
this is annoying

to get a screenshot hit the "Print Screen" button next time you get this popup
then open up MSPaint and click Edit then Paste and save as JPG or GIF and attach the file to your post or upload to a site like Photobucket.com and post the link here

my personal choice of spyware apps is PCTools Spyware Doctor & Xoftspy
i find running both of them gets really good results :)

this site is stickied here on these forums and is very useful.
http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm

Make sure you use good antispyware to search for the problem (you'll find them near the bottom of the page at this site............. its a big page.

I recommend trying each of these 1 at a time. Ad-aware Personal Edition, Windows Defender and Spybot Search & Destroy. All free.
