I would get numerous popups and sometimes it would come in multiple tabs that I cannot close (as if it was like a major lag or an autoclicker). I sometimes can't even go to websites like the typical social networks. Another problem is the Spyware 2009 program that is on my computer. I don't recall installing this program, however, I do remember there were a lot of popups that told me to install this and that. I tried to remove it, but its not even on the Add or Remove Programs list. What should I do?
