    Hi, can anyone help me? My friend is getting annoying pop-ups each time she goes on the internet usually saying:

    Clicking 'No' opens a new tab to: http://sc.videofreeforonline.com/id/4912933/4/1/.
    Total Secure 2009 is the software they're trying to get her to download.

    The hosts file contained several security sites redirecting to, I've deleted them now.

    I have no experience of removing malware/viruses but I made a HijackThis! log:

    I also have a SpybotS&D startup logfile:
    Sorry if this post is long :)

    Hi Welcome to TSG!!

    Visit this webpage for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix.

    Post the log from ComboFix when you've accomplished that, along with a new HijackThis log.
