    Recently (as in just today) my fiance's computer has been having ads pop up.
    It's rather annoying.
    Most of them say "by Outerinfo". I've ran Ad-Aware SE 3 times so far, each time it finds things and I take them off. Yet, the pop-ups keep coming.

    What's more annoying...is that when the outerinfo pop-ups come up...it causes one or two more pop-ups to show up.

    Help me get rid of this please? ;;

    PS: I've also seen a few pop-ups come up that say "by internet speed monitor".

    EDIT: I know I should run Hijack this and post a log...but it's be forever since I downloaded it and used it. So I need a link to download it and then I need to be reminded on what to do. x.o;

    Just figured I'd bump this up since it's probably on the third page by now and with no help.
