popup seems to breeze through zonealarm. I cleaned out my cookies, temp file (one couldn't be removed said it was in use), but the popup persists.
If anyone knows a way to force a deletion from the temp file in xp, or has a good adware spyware removal program, I'd love to know about it.

Obviously zonealarm just doesn't cut the mustard as a firewall. Any recommendations on a rock solid firewall?

I have heard (and I don't know how true this is), that some anti-virus software will pick up virii that others miss, because of the names not being recognized on some, and being recognized on others. So if you have anti-virus software running on your computer, it never hurts to get a second scan from one of the free ones online.

First, AdAware. Dealt with the smaller stuff. Then, SpyBot Search & Destroy. Got rid of all but one wee bit of CoolWWWSearch. CWShredder picked up on one or two hidden CoolWWWSearch that the other two missed.
But we were still getting those pop ups that say we might be infected with spyware or that our mailbox is overloaded with spam (what, they think we're morons or something!), plus something was continiously changing my homepage in IE. I couldn't seem to get rid of it, and I knew it was connected to CoolWWWSearch.Leftovers.
Hubby called the guy that built our comp, he suggested AntiVir. And THAT finally got rid of that last bit.
I still have two or three tracking cookies that I can't delete, but they aren't as much of a worry for me.
