Advice on how to stop Adware

Can anyone advise how to stop adware. Every day I get adware from a different source, it is always the same adware regarding stock market tips, but because it comes from a different location each time, ZoneAlarm and Adaware don't intercept it. It has been going on now for about 4 months. Any advice would be appreciated.

you already have Adaware SE, you can download & install their 2 Add-Ons (plug-ins) to block this channel & main one. Available at Lavasoft's Home site:

There are several other FREE tools on the same page.

Additionally, many, these days, also sneak in via IRC Chat route. If you don't use this feature (or only rarely) I recommend completely disabling it. Enjoy!! Grin
