darn pop-ups on my WinXP

I've got some pop-ups on my computer but I can't figure how to get rid of the root

It's ads for WinAntiSpyware software.

Anyone know how to get rid of this crap?

Think you need to format/reinstall your OS(XP), read this first.

Do you spybot S & D? That works pretty well and it's free. There are a few other spyware detection programs out there. Make sure they are from a reliable source or you'll create more problems.

Spybot works well. Are you still using internet explorer? If so swith to Mozilla

If you can read this thank a teacher. If it's in English thank a soldier.
