    I downloaded some freeware and then started getting all these extra browser popups when I closed my browser.

    Went into Start Programs=> accessories=>system tools =>system Information - Selected Software environment on the left and then selected running tasks.

    Most everything there was microsoft but there was one suspisious entry with no description - just the name Vsvcn.exe
    I searched for the file and its create date was bout when the problems started = I tried to remove it, ( was in the /windows/system dir. - it complained that windows was using it = restarted in MSDOS and renamed it - and did exit to restart wondows... and the popups have disappeared...
    I probably need to search the registry now to remove any reference of this also...
    Hope this helps someon...
