    Ok, whenever I open IExplorer I get web pages that pop up from no where. Almost always starts with a web page called www.traffic4sure.com
    I have never to my knowledge been to this site, I keep deleting all my cookies, all my temp internet files.

    I installed netscape and so far no pop ups, this leads me to believe that something within IE is the culprit for allowing these pages to come up.
    Aside from the annoyance, it locks up my system because about 2 dozen pages jump up out of now where, and some of the pages are PRON!!

    Could it be some sort of resident memory thing? or a virus?

    I really don't know how to fix this, so if anyone could help me out I'd be very thankful. If you need more details please ask.

    Make sure to run ad aware in SAFE MODE. It won't work otherwise.
