  1. First time infected in a LOOOONG time. I downloaded something I shouldn't have and now I've got a trojan and pop-ups. I ran avg anti-virus and anti-spyware in safe mode and it "fixed" everything until this morning when the pop-ups reappeared.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.


    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
