Additional Internet Pages Opening

By GJ2008 ·
When I connect to the internet, from home, additional pages open up straight away (normally advertisements). This has started to happen over the last few days. Is there anyway of stopping this? What do I need to check for?

You probably have some spyware or adware.

Download AdAware (free) and run it to clean up your PC.

Assuming you are running Windows XP, go to START>RUN>type in services.msc and when services window opens, scroll down to MESSENGER. This is not Windows Messenger but used for message services such as ads. Click on properties and DISABLE. This will stop 95% of ads you see.
