  1. Hey there! Well this is my first post, too bad its not for a good reason. I've just recently been infected with something I don't know, and I believe the result are these CiD pop-ups, some more inappropriate than others. I was wondering if someone could help walk me through the process to remove watever it is thats causing these pop-ups. Replies are much appreciated!

    Hi sajth and welcome to techspot. =)

    Important: Please read this thread HERE before you decide whether to clean or reformat your system.

    Should you decide to clean your computer, 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

    Hey! Well I've followed the detailed instructions and these are the required logs. Also, there were no rootkits found during the AVG anti-rootkit scan. I have some items currently quarantined in the AVG antispyware, will you tell me what to do with these? Thanks so much.

    Sorry! The AVG log didn't turn out how it was supposed to. Actions were definately taken and they were: all deleted except the first two and last three which were quarantined
