    What antivirus programs are you running? Also, what are your system specifications? Sounds like a spyware problem but I need to be sure it's not a hardware one.

    No wonder. Never disable AV software. It's probably spyware/trojan of some sort. Try a sweep with the AV software and with anti-spyware like Ad-Aware and/or Spybot: Search & Destroy.

    no i have ad-aware listed in my add/remove software in control panel. I ran hijack day before yesterday. If you want I can run that again and let you see the results?

    well you sounded rather strident. I thought perhaps you would be adamant that one of the programs you suggested would be superior and you would want me to D/L and run that?Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1

    hi lkm222. there is adware vulnerabilities on your pc
    if you are still having problems, go here be sure to follow all instructions, and alter the name of hjt. you must not run your pc without a firewall or an active antivirus programme, otherwise you are really looking to be hacked!!
    please post your hjt as a txt attachment , instructions are there.

    Apart from some p2p software and the program "SafeShare" that looks a bit sus, there's nothing much more on that list you've provided. However, you must rename the hijackthis.exe file to hijackthis1991.exe or something else because some malware hides itself from the original file name. Scan again then post it as a .log or .txt attatchment. Have a read of this and tomrca's link too.

    I see that you have a Peer to peer program as well. Having this active and also disabling your main line of defense (your AV software/firewall etc) just invites disaster.
