    never seen this before. I've run ad-aware, spybot, microsoft's beta spyware cleaner and we've got norton anti-virus corporate edition and STILL the pop ups keep coming. The anti-virus keeps catching a ton of stuff and putting it in quarantine...I clean that out and it catches more stuff. the microsoft caught something called the "peper trojan" but it supposedly cleaned it, but didn't fix the problem. Anyhoo...here's the hijack log..this log was after all of the scans with the aforementioned programs. I did update them before I ran them and also did thorough scans instead of quick scans.

    Requested by whom? this is not a security issue, and it's not going to get as many views over here. I posted it yesterday early afternoon and still haven't gotten a response, and moving it here won't help with that.

    Hi sleemie, Your post was moved here to assist you in removing the infection you have.

    Please go here: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and run the free on-line virus scan.

    Download Adaware SE http://lavasoft.element5.com/software/adaware/

    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)


    You are running hijackthis from a temporary folder. The backups that hijackthis creates can be accidentally deleted when not in a permanent folder. Please do the following;

    Click My Computer, then C:\
    In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
    That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis". Now you have C:\HJT\ folder. Put your HijackThis.exe there, and double click to run it.

    Once you have moved HJT, run the virus scan and Ad-Aware please post another log.
