    Well, on IE there was a window popping up telling me stuff like "Do you want to install and run "Gay Pron Trollbar" signed by "Holy Shit Inc...." and I could choose... yes or no and "no" was always my choice.

    The Avant Browser won't show this at all, it installs this crap directly. No popup, no warning, no affirmation. So it'll download and install "enlarge your penis" and "infalte your plastic wife stuff" automatically.

    This sucks, how may I fix it?

    If you are using windows XP, you may be able to system restore back to before you made the mistake, you could also try downloading Microsoft Anti-spyware beta to try and get rid of it.

    As far as prevention, use Firefox as your browser or control+alt+del out of the browser if you don't wanna be forced to answer a popup window like that.

    I can handle spyware, that was not my request. ;)
    I want to keep using Avant Browser but I want that browser to warn me before installing crap.

    why do you wish to continue using avant? Many people make fun of IE, but pretty much everyone makes fun of avant! It's just MSIE with extra shit to break.

    Go grab opera. It solves BOTH of your problems.

    Have you used opera??? I have found only ONE site that didn't work in opera. And Opera is WAY faster than Avant.
