Pop up ads crashing EQFollow

Having a problem with a pop up ad crashing me to desktop and turning on window mode. This usually happens going in/out of the Bazaar-Firiona Vie server. I have run several spyware cleaners ( Spybot, Ad-Aware ) and thought I had it cleaned. Any suggestions??

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you are having a windows pop up spam atttack. The pop-ups from this attack look like small windows notification windows, no graphics, just text. If that is the case, Try this:

XP Home, you go to Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> Administrative Tools -> Services. Scroll down to messanger, double click it and stop service, then from the startup type pulldown menu set it to manual or disable> apply> ok.

If that doesn't do it, let me know and we try plan B. are you running Kazaa?

I had it stopped, but not disabled, so I'll give that a try tonite. Also, I do have KLite installed on my system. Will post later w/ results.

Thanks again!!

Well, no luck so far. Would Kazaa lite pose this sort of problem? I'll go through those files and see if I can find anything. The window that pops up, ( over and over again) sports the heading of "Search Aide" and opens a small window w/ a serch bar?????
