    I have spent 4 Hours trying to fix everything. But I still have a problem...

    Ads are popping up now and then, and partial IE windows open at the bottom toolbar without completely displaying a webpage.

    I have tried Ad-Aware, Spybot, and Hijack This. I don't understand the HiJackThis Log, so I have copied it to paste below. Do you see anything that is causing this problem? (and other hidden things)

    Thanks in advance for your help. I am going nuts with this.

    Hi gapple

    Welcome to TSG! :)

    You have the peper trojan.

    Run this uninstaller to get rid of it:

    http://www.zerosrealm.com/downloads/uninst.exe

    *Note: Just click on the uninst.exe and let it run. When it is finished it will just close. There will be no dialogue. Also you must be connected to the internet for the uninstaller to be effective.

    thanks so much for your help... I did what you said, now I have to see if it made a difference!

    Can you tell me which part of the Log from HiJack this told you there was the Peper Trojan?
