Don't know how else to title it. My problem is that I keep having internet windows from internet explorer pop up, like 30 to 50 of them all adds. I have McAfee, XoftSpySE, and AdWare and still it's not getting rid of it. I did the log thing this site has but I'm totally new here and have no idea of where to put anything. I just don't know what to do. It's so frustrating I've felt like taking this computer out back and shooting it. (except it's new) It runs windows xp. some say Advertisement By Outerinfo. Some adds are totally stupid but some are for porn sites. Any advise on where to post this problem to how to fix it would be greatly appreciated. The problem I have with McAfee is it keeps popping up a window asking me if I want to allow this program. I have no idea what program it's talking about so I don't know if I should say yes or no. I so use siteadvisor but installed that after I was blessed with this miserable problem. :thumbsup:

In the link below are instructions you can follow for removing Outerinfo.
Like the first paragraph says though, you likely have other malware. So after following the instructions post a Hijack This log in the Hijack This Forum. DO NOT post the HJT log in this forum.

I also recommend that you download RogueRemover and save to you Desktop. (compatible with Windows 2000, NT, XP, Vista)
  • Double-click on rr-free-setup.exe to install in C:\Program Files\RogueRemover.
  • During the installation an icon will automatically be created on your Desktop.
  • Double-click on the RogueRemover icon to launch the program and select Check for Updates.
  • If prompted, click Download to receive the latest updates.
  • When completed, close the update window.
  • Select "Scan" and the program will walk you through the remaining steps.
XoftSpy is a program that was previously listed as a rogue product on the Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products list because of concerns with False positive, questionable license terms, and the use of aggressive, deceptive advertising, including exploitation of the name "Spybot". It has since been delisted but in my opinion it is not a very effective program compared to others with a proven track record like those mentioned in BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources or one of the other Trustworthy Anti-Spyware Products.
