Adventures in browsing

So last night I was browsing around looking at cosplay pics since I'm going to Owlcon and wanted some inspiration about dressing up a bit. Probably won't do it but nevertheless.
Anyway several options lead to porn at some points. It's like that on the information highway, all roads lead to porn. At which point the Pop Up ad game starts like those Whack a Mole games. Try to close all the windows and they spawn new ones! Can you win!?! Anyway last night I was a BIG loser.
Some pop up add totally hosed my IE. Couldn't get it working last night. Scan disk, Ad aware run. Nada.
Purge cookies, no luck. Keeps crashing telling me KERNEL32.dll error. Crap.
This morning I took another shot at it. Reinstall IE. No luck there. Hmmm. bad. I'm beginning to think I might have to reinstall Windows at this point. Then I decided to fire up Kazaa and see if any of those other browsers I've heard about will work. Mozilla, Firebird, Opera, Netscape. So I download some programs and I'm now browsing the web on Netscape. Yay!
