Pop-ups!!! How do I stop them on my network???



Little annoying browser windows, search bars in internet explorer, Casino games crap, adult diallers, favourites in IE, key loggers etc. I have hardened the firewall, but the users all use MSN Instant Messenger and so those ports are open. Messenger Plus seems to add to the mayhem. Should I shut off IM ports completely and will that stop the little *******s from messing with my users?
I have installed Ad-Aware 6 on one or two desktops and it finds >100 objects. I delete the ones I don't know about and the odd Hotbar, but things come back very quickly! It only seems to be on this one particular site, have I left something wide open for more malicious attacks?
the new Messenger Plus adds spyware and adverts etc - I tried it once and saw all the junk it also installs so quickly uninstalled it and installed MSN6 instead :)


I have the new messenger plus on my desktop at my office, behind firewall and I have no problems with spyware and ads, but at my clients site, the problem is getting out of hand!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
