How do I find and get rid of this:

I have a pop up program or something in my work computer that must have been attatched to somehting I downloaded. There is no anti-virus software on the computer and I can't install any. The only thing I have is Goback. How do I find whatever's causing the pop-ups so I can get rid of it?

If you dont have admin rights than you are pretty much SOL. Your best bet is to hack the registry.

if you have the right cd/floppy and can get the machine to boot it there are ways to hack/reset the local admin password.

Probably so. It's not usually a problem though when you are in the IT dept and have to do it.
