Arrow Answered: Is This an Pop-up From WI?

Well, whenever I use the old computer (which has no virus/pop-up protection), and I open up WI (cause it's the homepage), I always get this weird survey pop-up, and it ONLY happens on this computer... I was just wondering cause it's very annoying, it makes the WI page load slower, then it takes up like half my screen, and I have to wait for it to finish loading completely before I can x-out of it...

I'm not sure if this is from WI or just my computer (I can't remember how long I've been getting it), that's what I would like to know and how do I stop it?

Here's a pic:

If money is an issue, there is some free software out there that I use regularly and recommend. For virus protection, it is called AVG. For spyware, it is Spybot Search and Destroy. You can find them both by googling them

There may be better stuff out there, but I know both of these are safe and useful from personal experience.
Ok, thanks everyone!
