A couple of days ago, I noticed a popup that…um…popped up whenever I started IE. I didn’t think much of it at the time as XenoBar blocked its content and I was at a site that may have had popups. Then I realized that with my XenoBar settings, it shouldn’t have been popping up at all. I looked at the 404 error I was getting and it mentioned s-studio.net. I glanced at this site and found it was a gambling site. I have never been to this site before, yet somehow it’s managed to invade something on IE to make me get this popup whenever I least expect it.
I turned the problem over to the capable hands of my computer-tech boyfriend. He couldn’t find out where it was coming from. I ran AdAware. I ran AdAware again. I deleted all my cookies. Hello annoying popup! Please go back to the hell from whence you came!
I can’t think of where this thing has managed to wedge itself, but I want it OUT. I hate it and want it to die. Has anyone else gottent this, gotten rid of it, heard of it? How do I make it go away?
Please don’t tell me how great browser XYZ is and how it does all these wonderful popup blocking things that IE doesn’t do. I don’t care. I like IE.
