    I've been getting pop-ups from sites like oinadserve, casalemedia, etc. and so I went browsing through your forums to seek advice. I found a couple, but they involved stuff like "adaware" and "hjt." What is this? And how do I get rid of these viruses/adware/spys?!!

    Create a permanent folder on your hard drive and download this program to it.
    Hijack This: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

    Download it and click "Save". Save it to the folder you just created.

    Click on Hijackthis.exe to launch the program. Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log. Click "Save" to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.

    Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Someone will analyze the log for you.
