Nasty worm going around  
Adapted from microsoft.com:

To find out if a computer is infected with the Mydoom.A or .B worms, do the following:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type:
    cmd (if you're using Windows 98/95/ME, type command instead)
  3. Click OK. The black Command Prompt window will open, displaying C:\...>.
  4. Type cd \ and press ENTER. This will change the current directory to C:\ followed by a cursor.
  5. Type dir shimgapi.dll /a /s
  6. It will look through your entire hard drive. If it says "File not found", go to the next step
  7. Type dir ctfmon.dll /a /s
  8. Same thing, "File not found" is good. If either command shows files found, you're infected.

Some other useful information
How to do a testicular self-exam:

- Examine the scrotum visually for swelling.

- Examine each testicle separately by rolling the testicle between your thumb and the first two fingers of both hands. It is normal for one testicle to be larger than the other.

- Check for lumps, swelling, or a change in size or consistency of the testicle.

- Feel the epididymis, a cord-like structure, on the top and back of each testicle. Don't interpret this as a abnormality.

don't use IE. There are many things IE can't do. For everything else, there's Mozilla.

Welcome to the alterna-life.

You may have adware installed on your machine. A good test is to go to google and search on something (flowers, insurance are good ones). If you get a pop up on Google, you have adware.

You can get AdAware or SpyBot from www.download.com to get rid of it. Kazaa comes bundled with adware and spyware, but there's a hacked version of KazaaLite K++ that is clean.

Anyway, adware and spybot should be able to free up those pop ups. For the ones served by the sites themselves, use the free toolbars from Yahoo, Google, or DogPile. They do a really good job and each has some pretty cool features built in too. :)
