    Below is my HJT Log.

    I have hguest and hpwis at least and probably more. The first symptom I noticed was a few weeks ago when all my cookies started disappearing or not working. Message boards and banks started never remembering me from one hour to the next. For a while I thought I could deal with that, but I eventually noticed that my task manager always said I was running hguest. I found it was a malware so I went and found a file called hguest and I deleted it. That was a few days ago and the cookies haven't gotten any better. But every hour or so an error would pop up and say it can't find hguest.

    Today I started getting bombed with porn popups. Several per minute and now and then there is a burst where I can hardly keep up. It is doing it as I type this. And when I try to use the task manager it says it has been disabled by the administrator.

    The popups are mostly Spanish and Russian language porn sites, but a every now and then it tries to download a codec that I reject and now and then it just puts up an error saying that I'm not allowed to download a file, which is something I'm not trying to do.

    I did something I'm probably not supposed to do by trying to fix it with HJT this without help. I deleted several R1's called hpwis. It didn't help.

    Here's the current HJT log.
