Redorbit popups/Some kind of browser is running in the background

  1. Hi I was browsing the internet when I started to get popups from redorbit.com. I googled it and it took me to this forum, but what helped the last guy isn't working for me. I ran some anti-virus stuff and the popups don't come up anymore but i hear what sounds like a little internet explorer tick every so often and sometimes ill hear an ad playing and have no way of closing it. I've uploaded my hjt log so hopefully it helps.

    Fixed it. Found a similar problem on another forum and used MBRcheck to take care of it.
