    Hey, I have this pop up ad that comes up about 3 times a day, .. tbe window is called "sixty six" and it is by "pop64" I have tried to remove it several times, but it just keeps on coming back. I have Norton Anti-virus 2004, Spybot, Spyware Doctor, and Spy Sweeper. None have detected it. I can not figure out how to get rid of this. Any clue? Thanks

    redhatman, don't know what OS your running, but if
    your running WindowsXP, you can do a system restore
    a few days before you think you got this shit in your computer.........i've had to do this before with
    junk that i dont know where i got it from..

    what system restore does is it will restore your system back to the position it was in on that day
    and you won't lose anything you have downloaded since aswell. you should then get rid of all that junk......

    it's a little spooky the first time but the computer will do all the work for you................

    hope it helps........
    good day to all......

    well you might be able to go to ADD/REMOVE programs
    and highlight something that looks strange to you
    it should have a date there........

    or just take a guess, when beause like i said if
    you do this, you won't lose anything important...

    i have MacAfee on mine it has a built in section
    that looks for "Potintial Adware" and Programs
    as such, i go by that also.....

    i don't really know anything else...some of these
    adware programs will take out, stuff that shouldn't
    be.....so i don't use them....

    try system restore and go into you Norton, look
    for a scan, of sorts

    hope this helps..........
