  1. I've been working for hours trying to remove spontaneous IE popups. I don't even use IE, just Firefox. So far I've run AdAware, Spybot S+D, Ewido, and a cache of other programs. It seems a bit better, but I'm still scared. Thanks for the help.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Boot into safe mode. See how HERE. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html

    Run HJT with no other programmes open, and have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = file:///C:/Lea's%20Web/Main.html

    O2 - BHO: SDWin32 Class - {4209B5E3-A748-4365-8345-D72B3DC10E3A} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\itokq.dll (file missing)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KernelFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k

    O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE} - (no file)

    Reboot into normal mode, and turn system restore back on.
