I followed the entire tutorial to the 'T' http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic50981.html I after rebooting in normal mode to do the full virus scan, my AV found about 6 problems. Now when I reboot and scan my AV always comes back with Adware.PurityScan under the entry of C:\Program Files\1~ICROSOFT\lsass.exe I also get occasional popups while running Internet Explorer, but so far it has always been a blank popup ad right in the middle of the screen with the address of ad.oinadserver followed by AAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO or something to that effect. Even though I use firefox, I would prefer not having malware that effects anything on my PC, whether it is a program I use or not. If anyone can help me out i'd appreciate it. Posted are my Ewido and HJT log files.
