    My new laptop has already been invaded with popup software that has hidden itself all over my computer. Not only do I have popups, but whenever I type certain words on here they end up becoming hyperlinks to major websites!

    Any free software available that can help clense my computer?

    Google has some really good anti-popup software. Its free. I have not seen a popup since installing it.

    I run spybot and adaware every couple days. I doesn't stop pop ups all the time. Make sure to keep them up to date as well.

    I just ran ad aware and the hyperlinks are already gone. I think I will download spybot as well for extra protection.

    Thanks so much guys!

    'Pop-Up Stopper' is nice to use. U can get it for free searching Google.

    I downloaded Stopzilla for a trial period, but never purchased it after the 15 day trial. I have yet to get one pop-up in 4 months! I also use Skybot for weekly cleanup. Its good.
