I am getting a pop up from a place called heavy.com, I can't get rid of it. It has music that plays and then you get pop up of movie clips. I think I picked it up here from a link someone posted here. I know better then to click on stuff but I did. I am using firefox. Anyone know anything about that heavy.com and how to get rid of it?

Have you tried ad-aware or spybot? I use both and also use firefox, and I don't think I have ever had a popup.

Hey popcorn
I believe firefox has an option where you can manually click "block all pop ups from this site", next time it comes up got through your options and see if it gives you this option. My work pc has IE installed so i don't know the exact way to do it. At home i use firefox and it blocks all popups for me and gives me a message about whether or not to allow them from this site in the future.

Also the full release of firefox 1.0 came out recently ( the previous was a beta), not sure if theres a difference, might be worth downloading.
