I suggest getting Webroot Anti Spyware. Never fails.

Crazy pop ups happened to me too on the same tennis.com site. I got a bit paranoid and couldn't get the pop ups to stop so quickly I shut down the computer by holding down the power button. All was fine after rebooting. Did you reboot yet?? P.S. ^^^I actually have Webroot SpySweeper on my computers so maybe that helped. But I still felt as if I was under attack at the time...

Next time those pop ups keep coming you don't need to reboot. Just disconnect your network connection. Typically, that will stop the pop ups because it will prevent sites from referring to the next site. After it stops you can then go to task manager to "end task" iexplore or whatever browser you are using or manually close each instance of your browser. This may not be a virus. Nevertheless, run your virus and malware software just to be safe.

I thought it was just me!!!
There's something dodgy about tennis.com at the moment, sometimes it takes you through to websites that try and trick you into downloading a possibly virus laden "antivirus".
Is there anyway to alert the site owners? It's happened twice to me (in the last few weeks) but I just shutdown and ran the microsoft antivirus without any detections.
