A few weeks ago while online, my software installer popped up and installed something on my pc. I tried stopping it before it ended, but didn't succeed. I received the message that the computer needed to re-start before the settings would take effect, so I didn't re-start, ran my anti-virus check and cleaned temp files out, ran Ad-Aware, etc. Ever since then, I'm getting more pop-ups than ever -- on Google, now here on A2K -- everywhere!
Well, the same thing happened this evening, except that I was able to stop the installation. Has anyone else had this problem? Has Google started using pop-ups (has A2K?) or do you think that it's a result of whatever was installed on my pc?
If it's some sort of ad-ware, how can I remove it?!
