    Previously when I did a search for something on the net or followed a broken link which internet explorer could'nt find it I used to get a "page cannot be displayed" message.

    Now I get directed to http://lop.com and all these crap pop-ups appear, 3turtles.com cellphones4u.com etc.

    Obviously it's something I've downloaded but I don't know how to get rid of it. I've looked through my hard drive, searched for it and tried add/reomve programmes but can't find it.

    I want to get rid of it. Does anyone know what this is all about, has anyone else got this on their pc and how do I get rid of it?

    go into your internet setting and change your browser home page back to what ever you are on ( like ntlworld.com )
    and this should sort it out .the same thing happened to me they change your browser settings that why you can't find any programmes

    hope this sorts the problem

    Really? It's not set as mine. Maybe I should do that

    Anyway, I had something like that once... I weeded through all those popups and found the removal process. It was a pain, but it worked.

    Try Mozilla. It has an option for disabling unrequested pop ads, so you don't have to download a pop-up killer app.

    Thought about that and went into windows to try and find it. After 2 hours of opening anyting that looked like it could be the culprit I gave up!!

    I think it is a spyware.
    Try downloading Ad-aware here:

    http://download.com.com/3000-2094-10...ml?tag=lst-0-1

    or : http://www.lavasoft.de/

    Install it and scan the hole computer. Remove any spyware it finds.

    hope this will help you.
