    I must applaud the success I have had while using Spybot & Spywareblaster , yet I am rather unsure if this is where I should post my question , and yes I read several other threads and could not find any solution to my on going problem ... When I visit such sites like Fox News I 'continually' keep getting a pop up that say NetworkPOP that's coming from networksolutions , and it stores a cookie , yet after deleting that cookie that's named default@www.networksolutions{1} , it comes right back the following day , now what I am unable to understand is the fact I have downloaded and tried 'multiple' I truly repeat 'multiple' pop up killers , yet that NetworkPOP pop up above continues to haunt me at several venues while surfing . Is their any addition to the Spybot S&D and the Spywareblaster that can put a end to this pop up from hell ?

    Hi NetworkPOP,

    Does that popup look like a IE windows or does it resemble a Windows prompt?

    Regards,

  3. I surf with MSN Explorer as my browser , and today it never happened as I just went to Fox News , and that's what's so strange is that it will happen at times , then it doesn't , however the next time it occurs I am going to place my curser over the pop up on my tool bar and take a screen shot because I have awhile back and when my curser is over it , it displays a very long strange looking URL that even has symbols and in the lengthy URL it states the word even (modem) with a = an etc , yet I will capture that and show you when it happens , and the pop up itself that pops up is titled NetworkPOP and I wrote them and this below is their wonderful reply (go figure} ...

    I apologize about the previous post and my (name) there because I forgot to sign in , however I rebooted my PC and I went to the Fox News website and it happened yet again and I took a screen shot and will add it to this post ... The only reason I go to Fox News is because MSN Explorer has no idle timer and if my PC is unactive it boots me offline , thus the reason for going to Fox News because it auto refreshes , yet anyway I hope you please look at the screen shot and explain to me anything & everything you can about these pop ups ? The screen shot shows what's happening along with this about:blank pop up ?
