Hi peeps, I located this forum and !update.exe is making things nutty on my laptop. I did the above, and I'm still getting the problem (I actually did not locate either WinAbring.exe or m?iexec.exe--- also of the HJT entries, I only had one 016-DPF). This thread is about a year old, but I'm not having luck finding infoz elsewhere. . . I hope someone can help. It's the laptop I use for school and I'm dying with the pop ups. What can I provide as far as info? I have the HJT log, if that will help.
