  1. My friends computer has been plagued by virii, spyware, malware, etc. I have run multiple virii scanners (ie McAfee, Norton, AVG) and spyware removal tools (ie Spyware S&D, Ad-Aware), however a problem still persists. None of the anti virus/spware software detects anything, and the definitions are up-to-date. That being said, her computer downloads more spyware within minutes of reconnecting to the internet, even if you are not browsing in IE or firefox. If you are browsing (even just searching on google.com), then popups flood the screen, even with the popup blocker enabled. Her computer is well firewalled, and I am not exactly sure what the issue is. I have attached the HijackThis logfile.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    That is one of the most infected HJT logs I`ve seen for some time.

    I think your friend would be better off backing up his important data, and doing a complete format, and reinstall.
