    I don't how and why but every now and then a porn file pop-up keep appearing on my screen. How do you get that off the computer?

    I mean I have search my harddrive, search the computer for it and can't find it. Could anyone give me some script, solution anything to solve it.

    I would really appreciate it.

    How does adaware distinguish between an advert/popup and a part of a website the user might actually want to see?

    I would love to block popups, but some popups can be useful (legitimate ones, not spam windows and popunders)

    ad-aware doesn't block pop-ups. It searches your computer for spyware (which often causes some pop-ups to appear at odd times amongst other things).

    There are pop-up blockers around but I've never used them so have no idea how good they are. The best pop-up killer I use is alt-f4

    PopUp Killer has a white-list/black-list feature, and if the sencitivity is set properly, you can whitelist the popups you want, and blacklist the others. Works for other windows/pages as well, because when the window is open you can add it to the blacklist.
