Unwelcome pop ups

    I just got something that pops up on my browser (I.E. 6) that is a real
    nuisance. It's called Privacy Report to the best I can determine. It
    apparently tries to sell me on downloading some program that will scan my
    computer for stuff I don't want others to see and then can remove it.
    Apparently, I got this junk into my computer, without my asking for it,
    while surfing the Internet.
    Does anyone know how I can remove this spam junk from my computer? I do
    use AdAware and Pop Up Killer. The spam or whatever it is has almost taken
    over my computer. Even changed my homepage to some kind of web search.
    Even if I change back to my original home page, it seems to have the ability
    to change it again after I boot up and/or go back on line. Would
    appreciate any help.

    Take a look here:

    And to stop it happening again you can install a utility like FreeSurfer, which
    is actually a highly effective pop-up ad stopper, but also has a homepage
    locking facility. You’ll find it at:
