In an editorial on Malware, PC Mechanic hits on the real solution to spam and adware.  Those pop-ups appear because someone is hoping to make money, and if everyone stops buying from spammers and pop-up ads, they just wouldn't exist.

" "My computer is running really slowly and I'm getting tons of pop-ups." It probably wouldn't be

hyperbole to say that this is the most commonly uttered computer-related comment. As most of us

know, slowness and pop-ups are classic symptoms of malware - viruses, worms, trojans, adware and

spyware."
