Every time I log on, I get a pop up saying "do you want to reconnect" this is a smut channel. And I dont want any of this.

I am running Windows XP PRo, and my system is upto date.
Please help as this is getting on my nerves.

Try one of the spyware elimination programs. I use Spybot Search and Destroy, AdAware is another popular one. They are free to download from the net.

You might also look at simple firewalls - I use Zone Alarm, again its free and easy to use.

Download adaware... Install it, update it... Exit it...

Reboot your pc... Press F* on bootup and enter SAFE MODE

In safe mode, disable system restore, open adaware and do a full scan of your pc... (pick custom settings). All the items this programs brings up are malicious or record your data. Right click on the list when it is complete, select all, and delete em... - next...

Turn on system restore... Reboot All is well

Sounds like you have a browser hijacker, you can download CWShredder and it should clear up your problems.
