When I close the UM window I usually have two porno pop-ups displaying, first entitled "S*** and F***" and the other with two women doing...hum...you know...

I would like to know if I'm the only one who those things happen to, and if I can remedy this... sad.gif

Are you using any p2p programs, it may be the advertising software that they install, you can download ad-aware to search for spyware and remove it, or your security settings could be set to low and when you browse the internet things could be installed without any knowledge.

Just to confirm, there are definately no pornographic popup adverts being generated by Unexplained Mysteries, as <bleeding heart> mentioned above, you've likely got some sort of spyware/adware installed on your computer from a 3rd party p2p application.

Adware should be able to clear those out for you.  thumbsup.gif

Oh yeah I have Ad-Aware already installed and I do a check up as often as possible...but you must be right I haven't done it recently...

I've not been using a p2p program for a moment now...it must be from elsewhere...

Nope, not getting any problems of that kind.

Hahahaha...

Oh boy, of course not!  rolleyes.gif

I'm a future dad, I've nothing to do with those childish things! rolleyes.gif  tongue.gif

I've made my little investigation, and found out that a lot of my friends were troubled with the same sites displaying...so it can't be related with UM, I think it's more dued to a p2p program.

The best pop-up blocker i have found so far is the one that comes with the google toolbar........their pop-up blocker actually works. thumbsup.gif

The Google toolbar one does work pretty well...
