    Booting up in Safe Mode and running Adaware did find several viruses and removed them, but when I booted normally, after only a few minutes on the internet I got another CiD Popup for car rentals. Go figure?!

    I'm re-running Adaware now incase it missed anything...

Good afternoon!
Sounds like you picked up a trogan from some site that you visited.
I would suggest that you download "AdAware" and run that. It's free and does an excellent job. Here is a link:

After you download it, go ahead and install it on you system. After installing it, power down your laptop, and bring it up again in Safe mode. Then go ahead and run the program. It may take 1/2 hour to 45 mins, or so.

The reason for bringing it up in safe mode is that this will allow AdAware to check out any hidden partitions. Some of the malware is built in a way that allows them to hide there so that they will not be found by a normal malware program.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask. If this information has assisted you in the resolution of you problem, please return here to give my assistance an appropriate final rating. If this information has answered your question and/or lead to a resolution, please rate it as "Fixya!".
Thank you, and have a super day!

    Another thought is, do you have popups blocked? In IE, that's found under the "Tools" tab on the main screen. On Netscape, it is found under "Tools", "Options" and then "Content".

Is playing at online casino trustworthy? Is it reliable?

If you want to play on online casino then you should search a lot on the internet. Actually, there are lots of casino sites available but all are not safe to play. In my opinion, you can play on 918kiss. It is trustworthy and one of the safest place to play casino games.
I have played on this sites, and I experienced different types of games. As soon as you will win here you can out your cash any time without any restrictions.

We are getting dozens of pop-ups and can get rid of some of them

Popups are annoying messages or advertisements that literally "pop up" while you are on the Internet.
They use to be a huge problem, but with the releases of newer software to block them, they aren't as bad.
When a user is on the Internet, and a new window opens up without them meaning for it to, and there is an ad in the new window that popped up.
That is a popup. To get rid of popups, you're going to need some kind of popup software to stop them from appearing.

Search the Internet until you find a trustworthy Internet popup utility.
Be sure it comes from a reputable downloading source and has good reviews before you download it though.
There are scam softwares disguised as popup blockers, but these will actually add more popups.
Try the Google toolbar (there is a link in the Resources).
This service is made by Google and since they make a lot of internet advertisements, it makes sense that they know how to block them.
Just navigate to the install website and let it install.
The service is free and is automatic.
It will block most popups and includes a search bar linked straight to Google so you don't have to go to Google's website to search for things.
You can use that search bar.

Give the Yahoo toolbar as well (See link Below).
Their toolbar is free and also has a popup blocker.
Like Google's toolbar, they offer a built in search engine in it.
Their's has a spyware searcher as well though. It can scan your computer for spyware which one of the causes of popups.

Download and try Smart Popup Blocker if you aren't satisfied with other services.
This doesn't add a toolbar to your web browser like Yahoo or Google.
Instead, it is software that runs in the background of your computer and blocks popups to the best of its ability.
It only works in Internet Explorer though.
You also might want to install antimalware and superantispyware anti malware free edition Win XP/2003/Vista/Windows7
