hello, I have a new Toshiba Laptop for work, i recently downloaded some music and ever since i opened one of the files, I have been getting FLOODED with unwanted pop-ups. lets start with the obvious, "yes" I have my pop up blocker enabled both from the "tools" tab as well as the yahoo toolbar. the system adminst. here does not have any kind of virus protection to speak of, I got the name of what I suspected tobe the bad file by Macafee warning me that a program called "REDATPU 2000373" was trying to access the internet and asked me if I wanted to allow it. I said NO and then all of the pop ups came flooding in.

I Googled the file name I typed above and found this site, I found a forum where someone posted the same exact problem and was given a site to go to to download a fix. the fix instructions wew listed (the forum as it reads on the bottom of my printed copy of the page is" www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic103236.html) The direction of the person who replied (richieuk) was to download a program called combofix and save it to my desktop. I did that, the popups have stopped (THANKS) but there were some additional instructions that said to post a new "hijackthis" log. then it is followed by a long list of commands. the person helping said that some additonal files needed to be deleted. thats where i'm stuck. what is this report? how do i view it to compar what is on the site to whats on my p.c? and how do i proceed?

ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!
I KNOW THIS IS A LITTLE WORDY, BUT I THINK IT DESCRIBES (THE BEST I CAN) WHATS GOING ON.
