    i didnt know there was spyware on that stupid program.

    but anyway... i uninstalled it.

    and i still have the occasional penis popup or other stupid advertisement come onto my computer. it isnt like an "ad" either.. it's a plain window with all the advertisements on it and an "okay" button or something.

    just wondering how i get that garbage off my computer.. i know there's sooomme program embedded sooommewhere... :rant2:

    but i really don't want to get popup software or blah blah..

    Try ad aware to remove spyware and google toolbar for the popups. See if that can help you out some.

    And the ad is Windows Messenger which you should have disabled about 12 months ago when this all happened. Where is the damn FAQ already? We have this same fucking question every week.

    On a side note, if you're not running at LEAST Zone Alarm for a firewall, you're an idiot.

    And I'm pretty sure Trillian doesn't have spyware in it - I could be wrong but I doubt it.
