Winfirewall.com pop-up slows down ie browser and increases cpu output
Posted on 2004-09-06
I am about to lose my mind....
I've been inundated with "winfirewall.com" pop-ups, particularly when I need to go into the webmd office site to upload medical claims. It seems that theses pop-ups slow down ie browsing to the point where I have to alt-ctrl-del to check the cpu output. Usually, it's sitting near 100%.
I've done the following:
1. Installed pop-up stopper
2. Ran Ad-aware 6.0 and Spy Bot S&D
3. Scanned the PC with Norton Anti-virus - no viruses found
Windows XP firewall is turned on.
I always update the above programs before running them. Once the programs are run, browsing runs smoothly until winfirewall.com pops up again. Everything then slows down. I have to get my PC running smoothly again so that I can upload medical claims (I work for a physician) again. Help is greatly appreciated!
