    hi, i am experiencing random pop-ups when I use my computer, or just leave it on unattended. I do not have IE running, yet there are still randomized pop-ups coming from no-where... I do not know how to stop them... I've tried using Ad-aware and Spybot, but after using both, the pop-ups still come about... anyone have any advice?
