    You can take your shock horror back because im not using Vista yet.

    But probably if you've got system restore turned on, some spyware has been saved into your system restore bits and the virus scan is repeatedly detecting it.

    I've never had a problem with pop-ups on XP until now.:flirt:

    The pop-ups are gone and just random ones

    Is SP2 installed? inc all updates? this can effect the amount of popups you have !

    When he does pull, and decided to settle down and have kids, I can see the firstborn being called 'Vista'. The one from the broken condom will be called 'bad eXPerience', and the one resulting from IVF will be called '2000' :).
