ok i have spyware, virus, etc protection but here lately i am noticing that it is not stopping the pop ups and it is clogging my pc. it is called ewall or something like that. my husband told me yesterday what it was. his sister was complaining about it. she has all the most up to date stuff and it is still driving her nuts. she said that yahoo, myspace and ebay are the worst with it right now. she bought a new pc got online went to yahoo mail and didnt even open any, then went to ebay and bought something and her new pc started acting up. she did a scan and found 21 viruses and so much spyware it was horriable. she was online for like 10 mins and went to 2 sites. she took the pc back to the store and that is when they told her that it is a new type of stuff out there and it is causing lots of issues and they havent came up with anything to block it yet. are you having issues yet?

you need a good security suite such as norton or others that provide complete protection.
