  1. Hello guys, my Internet Explorer keeps popping ads out and I downloaded ad-aware to clean the adwares but it seems that even after performing the scan and quarantining all of it, it is still popping up. Then I refer to this post http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic99369.html to which I did not exactly uninstall my Internet Explorer. Please help. Thank you in advance.

    Here is a hijackthis log

    Normally, we don't screen with HijackThis. But see that your hosts files have been hijacked, so do this first please:

    You will need to do a DNS Flush, then reset your router.
    Start> Run> type cmd> enter> at the C prompt type ipconfig /flushdns (note space before the /)

    Exit the Command prompt when finished and shut the system down.-

    • [1]. Shut down your computer, and any other computer connected to your router.
      [2]. On the back of the router, there should be a small hole or button labelled RESET. Using a bent paper clip or similar item, hold that in continuously for twenty seconds.
      [3]. Unplug the router. Wait sixty seconds.
      [4].Now holding again the reset button, plug it back in. Continue holding the reset button for twenty seconds. Unplug the router again.
      [5].With the router unplugged, start your computer.
      [6].Connect to the router again. The turn the router back on.
      [7].When it stabilizes, reboot your workstation and try to access the internet. If you have any issues, access the Router configuration page and re-enter your authentication information.
      [8]. Reboot the system and test the internet. You may have to reconfigure the router settings based on your setup.
    ===============================
    What that is complete, please follow the steps in the Preliminary Virus and Malware Removal thread HERE.

    When you have finished, leave the logs for review in your next reply .

    Please do not use any other cleaning programs or scans while I'm helping you, unless I direct you to. Do not use a Registry cleaner or make any changes in the Registry.
