hello, i am a noob in computer and i wish to learn more about how to use and protect my computer properly.
i currently have a problem with the pop-up advertisements. i own a windows 2000 version and i use a high-speed internet modem. recently i keep getting popups, and sometimes programs that "screws up" computer by shutting down all my running programs and hogging my cpu memory. i use AVG(anti-virus)and spybot(ad-killer) that are constantly updated. but the advertisements never seems to stop even though that i have detected and deleted the ad softwares and trojans that are in my computer. can someone plz explain to me why and tell me a way to solve this problem?
