try changing your homepage to yahoo or something that doesn't have pop ups...
In IE it's under tools / internet options / general tab / homepage
change it to http://www.yahoo.com...still get pop ups on log on??

This is a virus. I had it a few months back. Nothing too serious, it just changes your homepage and causes popups avery minute or so. Do a search on yahoo about the gohip virus. There is some software out there than can take it off your computer.

Also, don't install the software that came with the AT&T broadband. Just change the settings (computer name & domain) and use your IE to browse.
