What's the deal with all the Pop-up adds on Windows 7
5 months ago

I have my pop-up blocker set to allow only with permission, a yellow box is suposed to show on the bottom of the screen with allow or don't allow on it. I have it set to allow all the time on sites like dpRevied and others that I frequent. Lately I can hardly read an article without having to close the internet and starting over again. These pop-up don't even have a way to close them.

Also: For the last 3 or 4 months Windows adds two (2) upgrades everytime I restart my computer. And I mean everytime. If I have to re-start it durning the day for some reason I have to wait for three or four minutes for Windows to install these two up-grades. Is this normal?

I've run scans, cleaned out files and done everything I can think of to help but nothing helps.
