  1. I use Firefox mostly and ever since the other night I have been getting pop ups from IE saying my PC has been infected with spyware and thing. Pop-ups are mostly about Anti Virus 2009 but can range from multi player games and stuff on that line. Can anyone help me on what I should do to get rid of this problem? I tried running Windows Defender, it found some things and I deleted them and things seemed normal for a little but then the pop ups started coming back.... Someone please help.....

    Hi Ronian30 :wave:

    Sorry its taken so long to get to you.

    DO NOT run Combofix until told to. This can seriously damage your system.

    You have stated you have the Antivirus 2009 virus. I would also like to check for anything else you may have.

    Go Here and complete ALL of the steps especially posting a HijackThis log under step 7.

    When running HijackThis:
    You must download the latest version from Here

    Then run it and leave the save location as default. DO NOT save it to your desktop.

    Then save the log it produces to your My Document folder and attach the log. DO NOT copy and past the contents.

    Attach the log by going down to Attach Files under your reply box on Techspot and then click manage attachments.

    Click browse in the new window find the file and then click open and then click upload.

    I would leave windows defender installed and running, its just another line of defence.

    I will have a look over your logs now but Ive got traveling to do now for Christmas and so i probably wont be able to reply quickly i'm afraid unless i have some spare time tomorrow but if i haven't got back to you by the 27 send me a message or post a reminder on the thread and i'l get back to you ASAP.

    Sorry for any inconvenience but Christmas only comes once a year :D
