I have Vista Home Thingy, IE 7, Windows Defender, Avast!, ErrorKiller, AdwareAlert, SpywareBlaster and crossed fingers. Yet I am still getting annoying ads taking over my browser and opening new tabs on me. What's a girl to do? I regularly update all of the above. I'm not at my wits end, but am getting more and more pi$$ed off, especially when it interferes with my fun/education on here.
