    If you have Windows XP and automatic updates switched on, it's probably updated itself to Service Pack 2 which includes a popup blocker and various other security enhancements

    oh o_O

    fuck knows then, probably some dodgy Internet Explorer toolbar that installed itself on it's own,

    try running adaware www.lavasoftusa.com or spybot search and destroy on your computer to get rid of that shíte.

    What browser are you using? Some have a built-in popup blocker, so maybe someone else who's using the computer switched it on?
