    Ran AdAware 6 and now I get pop-ups!

    As the subject says, I ran AdAware 6 (with the latest reference file loaded). I then cleared every entry that it found. Well, ever since then I've been getting popups at just about every website I visit. I don't mean the javascript type popups. It's those basic authentication login box type popups. They appear to be asking me to supply a username and password to places like addoubleclick.com, and various other sites that AdAware would have cleared. It's very, very annoying as sometimes it's as many as 6 popups in a row with every link I visit.

    I've tried modding my hosts file, re-running adaware, and getting the opt-out cookie from adclick. I don't really know what else to do, other than turn off my messenger service. I don't want to do that though.

    Any ideas? Appreciate any support I get.

    Try downloading Spybot Seek and Destroy...it's possible that AdAware left some stuff behind...if so, Spybot'll wipe it clean.

    Are you using the latest Google toolbar. It's possible it detects it as spyware (it is after all!!!!) and removed it, thus removing popup blocking.
