CiD Popups

By ShadyDevil

  1. Hey guys, Ive been having some CiD popup problems lately. I run windows vista 64 bit and firefox. But I also have Internet explorer installed as you can't not. For a while now internet explorer has been popping up randomly with CiD pop ups even though I never use Internet Explorer because its rubbish. I took a look at an earlier thread about CiD popups (http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic19133.html) and followed the procedures. I have attached my log file and would appreciate any help, thanks.

    I have used many malware / spyware software at the moment I am running AVG spyware and anti-virus also spybot search amd destroy. I have also turned my firefox and internet explorer popup settings to max. Yet I am still getting the popups.

    Any help would be appreciated greatly.

    Here is my AVG Anti-spyware Report

    I have been unable to run combofix.exe on my system, it says ive run out of memory which is rubbish as I have 4Gb. So I presume it doesnt work because I'm running 64bit vista. I also thought it might be worth adding that around the time the popups started I recieved a virus called Trojan Horse Dropper.Generic.PIW but AVG anti-virus got rid of that into the vault. I also would like to now whether you can advise me on a anti-rootkit software which is free and works on vista 64bit, as that is the only thing I dont have protection for at the moment.

    You have only provided an HJT log. I need to see all the logs asked for within the instructions.
