    I'm getting popups on my computer when I'm connected to
    my high speed connection. They're from,, and other stupid
    popup scam sites. They send you these popups and then
    they make you pay for them to stop!!!! I know that I
    should be able to stop them without buying their software
    which I refuse to pay for and install on my computer.
    I'm sure they do something to your computer you don't
    want! They pop up almost every hour regularly with
    basically no rhyme or reason. How do I stop them????
    The last one actually quoted a Microsoft Security code
    and said it was a message from microsoft that I should go
    buy the messengerkiller software! Is that allowed? I
    have a screenshot. Can I sue???!!!?? :)
    Thanks to anybody who can help :)

  2. Liz,

    This is a media center specific group. Try posting to an internet explorer
    group, you'll probably get the answer you are looking for there.

    Go to services and stop messenger service on your
    machine. Or get a firewall installed on your computer.
