  1. For about the past week, my pop-up blocker is letting every pop-up under the sun through when I open IE or switch from page to page and my computer almost comes to a stand still. I have tried ad-aware and spybot full system scans, and also avast full scan and nothing has fixed the problem.

    Hijack this log follows

    Moderator Edit: Please post your HijackThis log as an attachment to this thread. Do not copy and paste if not it will be ignored and/or removed.

    Hi,

    Very Important: Malware infections can possibly lead to identity theft, stolen bank funds, misuse of credit card information etc. Therefore I strongly encourage you to please read this thread HERE before deciding what course of action to take regarding your infection.

    Let me know if you wish to format or clean.

    Should you decide to clean your system, then please do the following.

    You are running an outdated version of HijackThis.
    You can obtain the latest version from the link in my signature.

    Please go ahead to Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and follow the steps given. Do follow all the instructions exactly. They will provide logs for analysis of your system so I will know how to instruct you to proceed.

    Thereafter, please post fresh HijackThis, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread. Do not copy and paste your logs if not it will be ignored and/or removed.

    Also, please let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan


    Regards,
    Your friendly momok =)
