Default Pop up crazy, internet clever types please help

sponsored links

 
I am using blueyonder BroadBand and IE 5.
A couple of days back after opening IE I was bombarded with pop ups and downloads, I deleted cookies, Internet files, d/led programmes etc.. but no joy, still being bombarded when I log on.

I have installed pop up stopper and its working all right'ish but anyone have any idea whats causing the pop ups, I think something has been installed and is hiding on my HD that activates the pop ups.
Allso did a pc cillen online virus scan...nothing

Anyone know what could be causing the problem, its driving me nuts.

Try downloading Ad-Aware & Spybot to scan your system, they should find any nasty little files hiding there. Be careful what you delete though with Spybot.
