    those are popups. u can prevent them by configuring ur popup blocker. u might download a popup blocking software for it. otherwise, u cant block these ads. it is not necessarily spyware.

    zone alarm is for blocking ur programs from gaining access to the net, not for popups.

    first scan ur pc with adware and spybot or ms antispy to check forany adware. then clean up ur pc junk using freeware 'ccleaner'.

    ie/xpsp2 / google toolbar / maxthon have great popupblockers.

    im having the same problem too.

    whenever i start my computer, a program tries to connect to www.ad-a-w-a-r-e.com. Im using Norton Antivirus/Zone Alarm Pro and Spybot Search and Destroy. It keeps displaying pop-up ads. What do i do? Should i use another Anti-Spyware/Anti-virus/Firewall software?

    keep all adaware defintions upto date. run scans regularly. make sure u have realtime protection with any antispy software such as Spyware Doctor, Windows defender etc. that really reduces the risk.
