    Every webpage I visit has random words hyperlinked, and when clicked, it takes me to different webpages and/or ads. I also notice my Pop Up Stopper seemingly working overtime to stop a series of pop ups that keep trying to pop up no matter what webpage I go to.
    Below is my HijackThis log.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. :D

    You should update to Service Pack 1 and make sure you have all the Microsoft critical updates and patches.

    You have the peper.a trojan so you will have to run the uninstaller.

    Download the PeperFix.exe tool from here:

    http://downloads.subratam.org/PeperFix.exe

    Click on the PeperFix.exe to launch it.

    Click the Find and Fix button.

    It will scan the %Systemroot% folder and locate all the peper files. You will be prompted to reboot. Reboot and it will delete the peper files.


    Please download and run the following programs and then post another log after rebooting:

    AD-AWARE

    Go here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/
    and download Ad-Aware 6 Build 181

    Install the program and launch it.

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

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------ON=GREEN

    From main window: Click Start then Activate in-depth scan (recommended)

    Click Use custom scanning options then click Customize and have these options selected: Under Drives and Folders put a check by Scan within archives and below that under Memory and Registry put a check by all the options there.

    Now click on the Tweak button in that same window. Under Scanning engine select Unload recognized processes during scanning and under Cleaning Engine select Let windows remove files in use at next reboot

    Click proceed to save your settings.

    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)

    Restart your computer

    SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY

    http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

    Open Spybot Search & Destroy (Click Start, Programs, Spybot S&D (Advanced Mode). Click online, Search for updates, Download all available updates. Close all Browser windows, Click ''Check for Problems'', Put a check in every entry Spybot Search & Destroy flags with a red exclamation mark and click ''Fix Selected Problems'' , Then restart your computer.

    Then, after rebooting, please post another log and we’ll see what’s left to get rid of.

    Turn off system restore. On the desktop, right-click on My Computer, click properties, click system restore tab, check turn off system restore, click apply and then OK. Restart your computer. Once your system is clean you will turn it back on and create a new restore point.

    Rescan with Hijack This, close all browser windows except Hijack This, put a check mark beside these entries and click “fix checked”.

    Then boot to safe mode (see how below), locate and delete these files and/or folders:

    IEHost.exe - file
    Dpi - folder
    IowoDw.exe - file

    Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start - Search and under "More advanced search options". Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

    Next click on My Computer. Go to Tools - Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types". Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    How to restart to safe mode:

    Then, reboot and post another log please.
