    Hello macc. Welcome to the TSG.

    This is what I suggest you do first.

    Make sure you have the up-to-date versions of Spybot and Ad-aware. All are free and available below.

    Download Spybot, install and update. Then download Ad-aware, install, and update.

    Spybot:
    Go to Start > Programs >Spybot > Search & Destroy and choose Spybot S&D

    Close ALL windows except Spybot S&D
    Click the button to "Search for Updates" and download and install the Updates.
    Next click the button "Check for Problems"
    When Spybot is complete, it will be showing "RED" (RED) entries "BLACK" entries and "GREEN" (GREEN) entries in the window
    Put a check mark beside the RED (RED) entries ONLY.
    Choose "Fix Selected Problems" and allow Spybot to fix the RED (RED) entries.

    Ad-Aware FULL SCAN:

    Install the program and launch it.

    First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

    From main window :Click Start then under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

    Next deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

    Now to scan just click the Next button.

    When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and click Next)

    Before restart, Empty Recycle Bin.

    Restart your computer.

    You need to update your version of HijackThis. Open HJT> Config> Misc Tools> Check for update online. If that doesn't work, download it from my signature. Remove the hijackThis.exe you have now.

    Post a new HijackThis log.

    Hi, Thanks for replying. I have completed everything you advised and posted my new Hijack file below. So far I have not had any pop-up so hopefully that has solved the problem.

    1. Open My Computer
    2. Right click on your hard drive that you wish to clean (C drive, for example)
    3. In the context menu that opens, select properties
    4. Under the general tab you should select Disk Cleanup
    5. Windows will scan your drive which will take a few seconds/minutes
    6. A box will display the various files you can remove.
    Check all boxes except compress old files

    7. Click OK and windows will comply.


    You need to visit Windows Update. Scan for updates and accept all critical updates.
    Reboot and go back to Windows Update until there are no more criticals offered.

    I suggest you do this:

    Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close ALL windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = localhost


    1. Open My Computer
    2. Right click on your hard drive that you wish to clean (C drive, for example)
    3. In the context menu that opens, select properties
    4. Under the general tab you should select Disk Cleanup
    5. Windows will scan your drive which will take a few seconds/minutes
    6. A box will display the various files you can remove.
    Check all boxes except compress old files

    7. Click OK and windows will comply.

    Reboot and post a new HijackThis log

    Open Spybot and click mode on the toolbar, then advanced mode. Click immunize in the left pane. Now click Tools, then hosts file the Add Spybot -S&D Hosts List. Click the link below for SpywareBlaster, download, install and update. Check for updates weekly.

    That will give you an added layer of protection against unwanted parasites.

    This one is not a problem and doesn't need to be fixed:

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = localhost
