Pop-ups, heavy.com,etc

  1. Hi, new here and I've been having a problem with some popups recently. I have no clue how I got them, but, with your help I think I can get rid of it all. I've ran combofix and hijackthis. I've renamed hijackthis.exe to happy.exe because in other threads, I've realized the nature of this virus/malware/spyware. Unfortunately, I was unable to emulate some of those who achieved in getting rid of it.

    I've posted the required logs.

    Also, to add, it seems that I get a "floating point" error any time I try to install ANY type of program which is making it even more difficult. Please help!

    Thank you in advance,

    Val-

    EDIT: Sorry posted an incorrect log

    Thought that I should probably post my netstat as well.

    I hope there isn't anything out of the ordinary!

    Please help. Still getting random pop ups and been trying to get rid of this stuff since this morning :(

    EDIT: I'd also like to add that I am unable to install SSD or Ad-aware and like programs. Something is hindering me from installing and getting rid of this stuff!

    Well, if you're having problems stopping banners and stuff from popping up etc. I'd recommend you use
    MVPS Host file as a way to block some unwanted ads. You might also consider reformatting your computer.: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic65943.html if all else fails. Hopefully, someone will come along soon, who can provide better assistance.

    Oh. One last thing. Consider getting your computer scanned online here: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ It'll find and erase bad malicious software. Good luck!

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Do you have any screen grabs of what it looked like when these pops were happening?
