    winpfind3u I then copy and pasted the log from this into the fix here box but it seemed to do nothing I left it for about an hour and in the end I had to close it down I thought it was fixed and then the little red cross appeared in the task bar and it started all the pop ups again. here id the log below.

    please don't piggyback on people's threads unless you have some help (especially on security quesitons - it gets confusing for the person who really needs help.)

    Hi iainfraser and welcome to techspot. =)

    I suggest you do the following before doing anything else

    Important: Please read this thread HERE before deciding if you should CLEAN or FORMAT your system

    Should you decide to that cleaning your system is the best option, please go to Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and follow the steps given.
    Do follow all the instructions exactly.

    Thereafter, please post fresh HijackThis, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread.
    Do not copy and paste your logs if not they will be removed.

    Our experts here will tend to your queries thereafter.

    Also, please provide the results of the Antirootkit scan


    Regards,
    momok =)

    This thread is for the use of iainfraser only. Please don't post your own virus/spyware problems in this thread. Instead, open a new thread in our Security and The Web forum.
