Basically do not click the link I provide unless you have a very secure comp. Every few minutes without fail, my laptop begins opening these quickly and in large numbers, so the tabs in my IE window become unreadable. This is annoying and means I can't watch youtube vids... Hell, doing anything takes a lot longer cos of all the windows opening so regularly. I don't know if I can simply block the address somehow... or what...? I've run a virus scan using the free AVG scanner... it found nothing wrong, but clearly something is up.

This is the link that keeps opening

Link Removed

please help me someone... before it totally wrecks my lappy!

I'll rep handsomely for a clean solution.

Have you tried a system restore?

Also I'd remove the http://www bit of that incase someone goes ahead and accidently clicks the link.

Get AVG Sypware Remover, download it (free) and run it on you computer, and that should sort it.

The link you posted appears to be clean (yes, I checked, but no, I wouldn't recommend anyone else clicked on it unless they can fix a potential mess themselves). Download Spybot to get rid of your spyware. It could be adware, in which case this is good software to use, and it also does spyware. Both are free.
