Internet Explorer PopUps

By michaelh ·
Not sure what triggers it, but whenever I have a browser open, could be opened to a blank page, on a set time interval I get a pop up advertisements of random sites. The site domain begins with http://www.srv2cpt.com, I'm not exactly sure where this trigger resides but I want to kill it, any help would be greatly appreciative.

I've seen this happen several times and what it usually is is a program you have installed had a "rider" that it installed with it. They very subtly mention the ad software in the install, hoping you'll miss it and stick that annoying &$*@ on your system. If you go through your add/remove programs you should be able to find the culprit. There are also several programs that will stop pop-ups you can put on your system, but it sounds like you've got one of those little applications buried in there and I'd get rid of it asap. Hope this helps!
