Default pop up/spyware scanning tool?

im getting a crap load of pop ups, have tried ad-aware but didnt do anything, can anyone recommend a free anti-virus program that i can download? i also get random music and noises playing if my headphones are plugged in, some of its damn funny though.


thanks

Ty

spybot
adware
norton dont do a half bad job.

I use spybot also. AVG has a free anti-virus program that is what I'm using now. Also as far as pop-ups you may want to change browsers to firefox. I rarely if ever get pop-ups after getting firefox as my browser.

ill try these, computer restarts on its own too. Im using mozzilla could be firefox or regular i forget. The problem is the pop ups come through IE not mozzila/firefox, even when i dont have IE open.
