    First you need to get rid of them.. Try the freeware program called Spyware Terminator. It has an option for ClamAV you can use that too if you don't have AV program already. To stop the popups I use Ad Muncher it's not free but it been around for years. Still I use 3 layer popup stoppers to stop the popups.. IE SP2, Ad Muncher and Armor2net (firewall)

    Hi

    Very Important: Malware infections may possibly lead to identity theft, loss of funds from bank accounts, misuse of credit card information etc. Therefore I strongly encourage you to read this thread HERE before deciding what course of action to take regarding your infection.

    Let me know if you wish to format or clean.

    Should you decide to clean your computer, please go ahead to Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and follow the steps given. Do follow all the instructions exactly. They will provide logs for analysis of your system so I will know how to instruct you to proceed.

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

    Also, please let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan


    Regards,
    Your friendly momok =)
