I never get beyond a single page load before wait or kill pages pops up. Wait doesn't work only kill, which is a bit harsh don't you think? Now I'm getting pop up tabs for advertising!!! What's going on? Thanks in advance.

After clearing browsing history and deleting more cookies than I can count; it's back to being flawless. Unless it's because its 12:47 am and that has something to do with it.

No you probably had a malicious cookie

Thanks DS,

      I was hopeful. I woke up to Same old Same old, (830am) and repeated blank tabs just one right after the other.

     So I went into Firefox; removed all stored cookies and the same thing. These tabs are ads, and one is showing a long list of files on the computer. I've run McAfee; SuperantiSpyware, disc cleaner, restore point, rebooted with last known working; et al. It's discouraging because I've not had pop up ads in a very long time. Thanks in advance for any advice.
