Recently, obscene pictures adult dating site began popping on my computer. How do I get rid of?

There is a place on the screen when they pop up that says “click here for abuse”. When I clicked it returns me to a screen that says to remove the program go to Start> Control Panel> Add and remove programs> “public messenger”. But when I get to add and remove programs, the messenger the public was not one of the programs. There is nothing even similar. I tried e-mailing the site that sends these pop up ads, but it does not seem to matter. I am a Christian and I would be mortified if a friend borrowed my computer and one of these pops up ads! I used to belong to a Christian dating site and I wonder if that’s what dating site Adult obtained my information. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I’m tired of seeing women breast arise whenever I check my e-mail. Thanks Stacie

  1. your pc has been infected with spyware
    go to http://www.download.com and download Adaware by Lavasoft and also Spybot Search & Destroy…then go to http://www.microsoft.com and download the Windows Defender prog…all are free and all will help remove the spyware …if not then you will have to take it to your local pc repair shop and have them do a format and reload of Windows
    good luck

  2. Check to see what programs are starting up,look in their and you will find it.Stop it from running.

  3. Okay, lets rewind here, you said you “Clicked here for Abuse”?

    You’ve definetly been abused by a Spyware/Malware.

    Please download Ad-Aware Personal (Free). And do a complete system scan.

    Try a recovery. If this started happening a few days ago do a windows recovery and see if tht solves your problem.

    Go to start – run – type msconfig – click on launch system restore and follow the steps to a date where the problem was not happenin.

    Good Luck!

  7. Your PC is infected with adware. Use these scans to remove it.

    All of these are ones that I personally use and all are free.

    Spybot – Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven’t intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been “hijacked” (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don’t see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there’s no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.
