Hi, I am new to this forum and admittedly am not a technically gifted person but I recently and stupidly unwittingly downloaded hacktool.rootkit virus onto my computer. Now the pop-up ads are unstoppable. I've scanned with ad-aware, spy-bot, panda, and trend micro's house call and I still have problems. Thanks to this forum, I downloaded HJT. EDIT : the logfile is attached Thanks for the help with that. If anyone with more knowledge on this subject could help me out and tell me what I need to get rid of, I'd be much obliged!!! Thanks!
