Default help! pop up windows when starting windows!

a couple of days ago this started -- when I start up my computer (windows 98), a whole series of pop-up windows start spawning -- BEFORE I have even opened up a browser.

How can I find what has been planted on my system to cause this and how can I get rid of it?

Anyone else experience this?

I do use the Humanclick service, which starts up automatically, which does load a banner ad in it. Perhaps this is it..

What kind of windows? What do they say?

Go to Start > Run > msconfig and then click the Startup tab. Remove any unwanted programs. Be careful, though, some programs are needed to run Windows.

Also, check your C:\WINDOWS\Startup folder.
