I downloaded software for pokerstars.net yesterday and ever sense, I have random opening of IE in a new tab. Sometimes it goes to reg defender, and other times it goes to car web sites. I removed the pokerstars.net software and ran adaware. Got an "An unhandled exception occured at 0x003C10C0 in aawservice.exe" from adaware. I've run this program lots and never got this error. If I delet the message, the adaware scans stops. If I do nothing, the adaware scan continues. Generally I find 20-30 tracking cookies everytime I run adaware, even if I run it several times per day.
1) How can I get rid of what evers causing my IE to go to random sites.
2) What can I do to protect myself from tracking cookies so I don;t have to search and purge them.
thanks in advance for any help,
