    I am a newbie to the site and need help. I keep getting pop ups on computer even when my browser is not open. I downloaded Pop-Up Blocker and it is working overtime but still does not stop dialog boxes from poping up. I have downloaded and run SpyBot SD and then run HighJack This. Her is the HJT log, can someone take a look and tell me what is wrong. Thanks.
