Hello everyone...I'm new here so I hope I am in the right place! I have a 1.2 ghz Gateway with 256 MB RAM. I have always considered myself a spyware expert, cleaning this computer of 412 viruses and (get this) 1084 spyware components with adaware when I first started using it (It was my boyfriends, now husbands). I was recently surfing the net and came across an Alicia Silverstone fan page that installed a ton of spyware and trojans on my computer and I have had trouble ever since. The trojans were in my java cache and could not be cleaned so I resorted to uninstalling java, deleting the viruses and reinstalling java. I have also ran Spybot S&D, Adaware and Spyware Doctor, all of which find the spyware (one being Hotsearchbar) and they claim to delete it but an immediate follow up scan shows they are still there. System restore is turned off. After all of this the pop ups continue. Recently I tried to download a trial of Norton. While it was installing the computer shut down on it's own. I also tried to run a PCcillin Housecall scan...Just as it was about to find something the computer shut down. When Adaware says there are components that cannot be removed and wants to run on system restart, I click yes. I restart and then Adaware pops up to run...But just as it starts up the computer shuts down. I can't restart the computer without cancelling the Adaware scan. Whatever this is it is much smarter than me. I am now running Mozilla Firefox browser with no pop ups and protection from SpywareBlaster but when using Internet Explorer the pop ups are still present! Can anyone help? My hijackthis log is attached. I would much appreciate it!
