It won't stop

These porn advertisments CONTINUE to pop up on my computer. day-in day-out. I deleted cookies internet files....yet they still come up. I came to wta world.......browsed for about 5 min.....and then 2 porn windows come up!
AND .....trust me when i say i do not look at porn.
They seem to have hooked themselves onto my computer!

What is going on? why don't they go away? can anyone help!?

you should read agreements before you install things

winmx is good - very safe! but you should still install adsgone and adaware.

Yes. you are right. Forget Kazaa.
Winmx is what i will stick to. I will take a look at those anti-pop-up programs. but for now. in the last 10 min since deleted kazaa and all that other junk...... i have not had any ads.
