    Here`s info on HJT

    Also use this instead of IE, BTW what firewall and antivirus are you using ?

    Did you run the scans in safe mode ? That`s important.What Firewall are you using ?
    Do the popups occur just when browsing or at anytime.This only thing in your new log that I`m not sure about is-
    O20 - Winlogon Notify: Dynamic Directory - C:\WINDOWS\system32\l8n4li5q18.dll -Perhaps somebody else could confirm what it is.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Boot into safe mode, and turn system restore off.

    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel, and uninstall anything to do with(if there)

    C:\Program Files\FriendFinder Messenger\FriendFinder Messenger\FFIMC.exe

    Close control panel.

    Open your task manager. Click on the processes tab, and end process for(if there)


    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open, and let HJT fix the following(if there)

    O4 - Startup: FriendFinder Messenger.lnk = C:\Program Files\FriendFinder Messenger\FriendFinder Messenger\FFIMC.exe

    O16 - DPF: {8714912E-380D-11D5-B8AA-00D0B78F3D48} (Yahoo! Webcam Upload Wrapper) -
    O16 - DPF: {9A9307A0-7DA4-4DAF-B042-5009F29E09E1} (ActiveScan Installer Class) -
    O16 - DPF: {BF985246-09BF-11D2-BE62-006097DF57F6} (SimCityX Control) -
    O16 - DPF: {E504EE6E-47C6-11D5-B8AB-00D0B78F3D48} (Yahoo! Webcam Viewer Wrapper) -
    O18 - Protocol: msnim - {828030A1-22C1-4009-854F-8E305202313F} - "C:\PROGRA~1\MSNMES~1\msgrapp.dll" (file missing)

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: Dynamic Directory - C:\WINDOWS\system32\l8n4li5q18.dll

    O23 - Service: Network Monitor - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\Network Monitor\netmon.exe (file missing)

    Close HJT.

    Click start/run, and type services.msc into the run box, and press enter.

    When the window appears maximise it. Look for the 023 service above. Double click on it, and if it`s running click stop. Set the startup type to disabled. Click apply/ok.

    Locate the following bold files, and delete them(if there)

    C:\Program Files\FriendFinder Messenger\FriendFinder Messenger\FFIMC.exe

    Reboot into normal mode, and turn system restore back on.

    Now get yourself some antivirus protection, and a good firewall.

    Avg free, and Zonealarm free.

    Regards Howard :)
