I use windows XP. Earlier I download ActiveX and right after that I started getting all these different pop up. They say different things the most recent one that keeps coming is titled "System perfomance (<thats how it appears spelled on screen) monitor:warning" But when i click on it, it takes me to a screen that wants me to buy virus protection. I was also getting one about Malware. They are constant. It even took over my homepage. I tryed removing the ActiveX it tells me to reboot and than its still there. Helppppppppp

Hi queenNY17x,
From what you say I think you need to post a HijackThis log and then wait for someone qualified (gold shield next to their name) to take you through what needs to be done. Please go no further than the steps below and posting your results for now.You may want to print off this guide just in case.

Using Hijackthis with the self-installer that puts it into Program Files for you:

go to Click here to download HJTsetup.exe


  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then save the log and then the log will open in Notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Once you've done this, wait and you'll get great help.

Richard.
