Hello,

As of today I've been seeing the following three things:

1. Random pop-up adds. On the latest one I noticed the source is c3.zedo.com.

2. Randomly Internet Explorer opens up and advises to download registry defender. This was really strange since I always use Firefox and never IE. The url on the window that pops up is:
http://www.registrydefender.com/l/i...nder.com&target_passthrough=cyberdefender.com

3. At start up I'm now seeing an error from Acrobat Distiller statitng: Cannot create message log mutex. Error: 6 - The handle is invalid. I've attached a hijackthis log which I just ran.

I also tried to run hijack this a minute ago but the application wouldn't appear. I just rebooted and opened as quickly as possible to get the below. Thanks in advance for your help.
