  1. spent three days trying to get rid of the popups. i followed all three instruction pages in safe mode. (http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic30213.html) Adaware and ewido are picking up something called Tracking cookies. ive removed them a billion times but they retourn, not sure if these are the cause. Spybot s&d isnt showing any problems. i feel like ive downloaded and run just about every scan available. by now i would have just formatted the stupid thing, cause it does need it, but i bought this computer two years ago with the OS and everything already installed. (HP Pav. a708n) I dont own any copys of windows. Dont want to format and not be able to get it reinstalled!

    Ive also got this icon by my clock, red sheild with white x, saying win security alerts.

    Heres my hjt log.

    Your HJT log is clean.

    However, you`re not running any antivirus or firewall software. You should get some ASAP.

    The free AVG antivirus and either the free Zonealarm or the free Kerio firewalls programmes(just Google).

    Once you`ve installed and updated AVG, do a full system scan and delete whatever it finds.

    You should also go HERE and follow the instructions exactly. This is to make sure your system isw clean.

    When you`ve done that, please post back and let us know how your system is running.

    Regards Howard :)
