    I've had unwanted IE windows popping up for the last few days now. It's usually some advertisement. I can also here clicking when there's no window which I'm guessing is some bad activity going on or possibly my Google toolbar blocking additional windows.

    This seems to be isolated to IE, I usually use Mozilla but had a problem with it so I foolishly used IE for a task. I've tried running Ad-Aware, Cwshredder, Spybot and XoftSpy but none have been able to stop my problem. I also tried running ComboFix after reading some previous posts but this did not help either.

    I have HJT and can post a log if someone would like. Otherwise any other suggestions on what to do?
