Windows 7: How do I Block securesetup.net popup?

How do I Block securesetup.net popup?

When I open iGoogle, iGoogle starts and right away a window pops up advertising the site: securesetup.net which seems to be some sort of hosting site. How do I get rid of this annoying popup?
Thanks in advance, Wally

Clear your DNS cache

Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0

Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click and run as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself.

Tell me if that stops the pop-up.

Try Resetting Internet Explorer. See if that helps!

Thank you, I reset Internet Explorer but I still have 5gigs.net! Wish I could get ahold of who did this!

Jacee gave the instructions for how to clear it in her post.


Copy the text in bold in her post to Notepad. Name it flush.bat, and save it to the desktop. Then right click on the saved file, and "run it as administrator".


Here is more on the DNS cache.

Sorry Jacee, guess I can't even read now - I tried your suggestion (twice) but good old 5gigs.net still pops up after I click on iGoogle.
Thanks though, Wally

Any reason that you can't just enter the site to the Windows host file?
