    Well, start with using a browser other than Incontinent Exploder. A lot of us use Firefox, but Opera, Chrome, and Safari are other good choices. Anything but IE!

    If you use Firefox, install the NoScript and FlashBlock addons. These ask your permission before running potentially malicious JavaScript and Flash code on websites. It's JS and Flash that are largely responsible for those popups. (I don't even allow all the JS sources used by TG, as many come from ad sites that I have no reason to trust.)

      step 1. Stop looking at seedy porn sites!

      step 2. Download the free version of Malware bytes, run it and hopefully clear out whatever crap you have on your computer. You can get it here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

      step 3. Follow the advice in the post above.

      step 4. STOP VISITING SEEDY PORN SITES!!! (or downloading software from torrents, etc.) ;p

        Yeah, that open source stuff like Linux distros will get you every time! Stay away from seedy Linux sites like this one!

                Ok, now I think you're just making fun of me. I'm going to take my toys and go look at non-seedy porn sites.
