I use the latest Microsoft browser, I keep getting "text enhance" pop ups, and vague pictures of women saying I am your crush, ...I do not do porn sites, how can I get rid of these?

http://www.abine.com/dntdetail.php This free blocking software really works, also stops tracking. Was featured on CNET about two weeks ago. This also tells you what companys are tracking you and keeping your info. However does sound like you have been infected with malware and need to run an anti-malware program also

Sounds like you have some form of malware. Download the FREE version of Malwarebytes, update the database files, and perform a full scan.

As said by others, Malwarebytes, then load Firefox with AdBlocker Plus and you will never be bothered by popups again. Microsft Internet Explore is not your friend. It is the browser that hackers love to attack.

FireFox and Ad Block do the job for me, no pop ups.
