    Well a while back i was having trouble loading (www.dance.net) a site with my macbook. I was able to go to the site with any other computer on the same network. But on my macbook it was impossible. It still is, but I dont know what to do.. I tried to turn off the pop up blocker, and when i turned it back on, i kept getting pop ups. I have tried to restart safari, turn the blocker off and back on again. But nothing works..

    Does anyone know how to fix it?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Lisa :)

    The sad truth is no computer connected to a network is safe from spyware and adware, and it looks like you got a hell of a lot of it.

    Don't worry, happens to my moms macbook all the time. Don't know what websites she goes to.

    Simply google and download MacScan (I seem to be recomending this a lot lately.) and run A scan. A quick scan might even do the trick.
