  1. please review the attached hijackThis log. I ran all four tools according to your instuctions. Initially, there were two icons in the system tray with pop ups that stated "critical system errors". Also, everytime i would open internet explorer, pop ups would constantly appear.

    After running the four removal tools, it appears that after I restarted the computer that the system tray is back to normal (no more critical system errors)...but, I still receive pop-ups when I access my browser.

    Hello bka114 and Welcome to TechSpot :wave:

    Your system is infected with malware.

    Please copy and paste these instructions into notepad and save the file to your desktop.

    First of all, turn off system restore (see how here)

    Now, restart your computer in safe mode (see how here)

    Once your computer is started up, open the notepad file and follow these instructions exactly.

    Run HijackThis and have it save a logfile with no other programs open except notepad.

    Go into Task Manager by pressing down the ctrl and alt keys simaltaneously and then pressing delete.

    Go to the 'processes' tab and end the process for (if there):

    Now have HijackThis fix the following entries (if there):

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {F0CD7EB1-A2DB-4872-A326-F4D0064F70D2} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\gebcd.dll
    O3 - Toolbar: Bar888 - {C1B4DEC2-2623-438e-9CA2-C9043AB28508} - C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\{301CB~1\Bar888.dll

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is riddled with a variety of nasties.

    In Addition to the instructions given by kitty500cat, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.
