  1. Hi,
    I've been getting the same annoying popup from ad.firstadsolution whenever I start my computer or whenever I open IE, or firefox.
    I've tried adaware, and I have norton antivirus, and windows defender but the popup still persists.

    Attached is my HJT log, any help is appreciated!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go and read the Trojan Pakes and other nasties 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:

    That norton crap needs to go, and windows defender isn't all that good either!!!!

    It`s completely up to you, but unless you post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs, I can`t say whether your system is clean or not.

    Regards Howard :)
