    Default Miserable Ebay pop up ads-How do you remove?

    Over the past week I keep getting those annoying pop-up ads on ebay. Its only on ebay. All of the current pop up elimnator software seems to work because I don't get them on other sites.

    I suspect malware. I suggest you download, install, and run CCleaner and Spybot Search and Destroy.

    Get the two programs at:

    CCleaner - Home
    The home of Spybot-S&D!

    Make sure you use these exact URLS.

    I use Firefox for my browser and added the ABP adblocker utility. Both are free.

    Ditto, works great. Don't use IE for anything anymore.

    Also Spyware Blaster is good to have also.

    Do you have your pop-up blocker set to allow pop-ups from e-bay.com?

    You might have needed to do that to make e-bay work (I don't recall - I seldom use e-bay). If you did, you've opened the door.

    Also, I belive there are ways for a web page programmer to put things in their web pages that look like pop-ups but do not trigger a pop-up blocker. I've encountered those and just avoid those sites.
