    I know... this has been asked too many times. But I have done searches and done research. My problems stem from the fact that even after googling programs I still am not sure if one or the other are trojans, adware etc...

    I learned bmeb.dll should go... But as for some of the others I just don't know...
    Can someone help me out plz...
    Earlier today my brother got gay porn popups... I can't have this happening. I don't even know how this happened, all I know is that one day I started getting 505 error pages, I get at least 30 per day now, and every now and then I get porn popups..!

    It's embarrassing to say the least, enfuriating to say a little more.

    I've run hijack this, this is the log:

    thank you.. :)
    But why the restrictions, the last one on the list you made?

    What does it do?

    It restricts access to Internet Options, which isn't practical.

    That is, unless you deliberately set this restriction in order to prevent someone else from changing them.

    You may not have noticed, but if you take a moment to look at that log, you'll see that IBM already HAS SpyBot installed... :D

    In fact, that's how this restriction was set in the first place: IBM actually implemented those himself by checking the "Miscellaneous protection" boxes in SpyBot S&D's "Immunize" section.

    if you want to be immunized from avenue a inc., but not have to close that annoying window, just go to the spybot s&d immunize window, then in the dropdown menu under "permanently running bad download helper..." choose "block all pages silently".

    Hi thanks for the tip :)
    But uh, no, that's not it, I really wanted to know why helponthe.net is causing this alert?

    thanks though, I didn't know that, so maybe I'll do it. :)
    Thank you.
