  1. A user at work brought me their laptop for me to take a look at. The computer runs extremly slow and seems to have every program under the sun loaded. The woman that owns the computer claims that it has a very bad popup problem. Here is the hijack this log. Can someone take a look at it for me? I know i need to prob run a virus scan and spyware scan.

    I'm probably going to reformat and do a fresh install. There are so many programs and so much stuff it would prob be easier. Thanks for offering to help.
