I saw your post before and can only tell you that this isn't from this site. Change your homepage and see if it still comes up. If it does then something has configured itself on your system - what that might be I have NO idea.

Have you tried running Ad-aware to see if it can locate and delete any spyware on your system?

Also, try deleting all your temporary internet files and cookies and see if that helps.

Did you delete your temporary internet files and all your cookies too?

I think the 'uninstall' of IE only removes visible links to it, and I'm not sure where to get a third party copy of it.

Have you tried changing home pages and seeing if it still comes up?

I'm guessing this is something that piggy-backed on your Kazaa installation. Do you remember when it started happening, what you installed? Try uninstalling some suspects and see what you see. You can always reinstall them. It may not help one wit, but it's something to try.

How about this:
Tools>internet options>privacy
click on the advanced tab
check the box to override cookies settings
and then on the cookie settings click on the prompt radio button.
and whatever you want for session cookies.
click ok
on the next box web sites click on edit
in the managed webs sites box see if ads.flow.com and ads.ad-flow.com is in there. highlight it and click remove.
close IE and then restart IE
When it loads again it should ask you which cookies to allow to load. When you get to the one for ads.flow.com and ads.ad-flow.com check the box that says to apply this decision to all cookies from this site and then click block.
Hope that works

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
