Spybot Search and Destroy
And in the future. Try to browse the web on a profile that IS NOT the admin. You generally only want to log in as the admin when you need to install something.

then use a better internet browser like safari. it blocks all types of popups.
for internet security,
Some Antivirus and anti spyware programs have poor virus detection and removal capacity and even cause threats to your computer.For best protection, use both Avira Antivirus for Virus protection and Spyware Doctor for spyware, malware, adware and even virus protection. Always update your Anivirus and anti spyware regularly to maintain your protection.
Internet Security Info:
AVG - Detects viruses but not all
Kaspersky - better than others but some problems on the performance issues
Nod32 Antivirus - low quality anti virus
Norton Antivirus (Symantec) - always creating crashes/not recommended antivirus
Mc Affee Antivirus - the same poor detection on viruses like nod32
Avast - good but with few performance issues

look up at the top of your screen... File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, SETTINGS, Help
pick settings.. select web pop up controls and set it to the standards you want, you can add sites to accept pop ups from and still have the blocking on all sites not listed!

Get malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Update it then run a full scan.Source(s): http://www.malwarebytes.org/
