  1. I think some of you are familiar with the softwarereferral problem. It feeds me all types of pop up messages about infection and takes me to various websites. Im about to pull my hair out so any help would be much appreciated.

    I ran the newest version adaware scan before the HijackThis scan.

    Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2
    Scan saved at 8:39:05 PM, on 4/13/2008
    Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
    MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16640)
    Boot mode: Normal

    I tried to post my Hijack This scan, but it went beyond the 10000 characters, so what should I do?

    Thanks for any help.
