On my old machine that was running Win98, I didn't have this much of a problem, but on this newer one with XP, it's hell! I was having insane popups, stuff installed on my computer that I'd never even seen before, etc. So I got this thing from BulletProofSoftware and it was okay, but it was trialware only, and it expired. Now, as far as popups go, not a big problem anymore thanks to two popup killers. But even after I set up IE to prompt ActiveX and cookies (which I say no, and block from obvious bad sites) I still get programs and bullshit installed on my computer. I have Norton Antivirus, and it can detect them, but can't delete them. Some of this shit won't even delete manually. It's getting so annoying that I'm contemplating seeing what kind of legal actions I can take. Seriously, I can't enjoy the internet anymore. HELP!!! How do I get rid of this insanity!?!?!? Also, every time I start up my computer, before any program opens, IE asks me if I want to run ActiveX (But there is no IE open, so I click no). Let's see, oh yes, there's this IPInsight shit I can't get off my computer. What gives? HELP!
