As this is my first post, I guess I should say, "HI" and thanks for even looking at this in the first place. :wave: I very rarely use IE, but lately have been getting pop-ups. I've been getting two kinds of pop-ups: One kind seems to be displaying links in response to my Google searches or in response to the web page I'm viewing. I did a bit of research and found that this could be a symptom of something called DNS Catcher. The other kind are advertisements for casino sites, travel agencies, etc. I've run several scans with both Symantec AntiVirus and Microsoft AntiSpyware. It found several problems, including DNS Catcher, some Trojan crap and other Adware and supposedly deleted/quarantined them but the problem still remains, however, I now seem to be getting more of the advertisement pop-ups than "search result" pop-ups. I ran additional scans in both Normal and Safe Mode, but no threats are detected now, even though the pop-ups continue. I doubt this'll help...but when I get a stack of the pop-ups minimized, it says "MQBETMAN" in the little taskbar block. Don't know what that could mean, but it's always consistent. Please, please help.
