I have seen someone else in the Hijack this forum post this problem but I have no idea how to edit my registry or any of that. All I know is I am willing to try ANYTHING if someone is patient enough to walk me through it. I get pop up sites every few seconds now... brandarama, broadcaster.com, tons of others. It's severly slowing my computer down and making using the internet a nightmare.
Anyone willing to start me off in the right direction? I have ad-aware and have been running it daily as well as AVG free edition, and I downloaded SpyBot Search & Destroy but am a little uncomfortable with just deleting every file it says is bad.
I look forward to any help. Thanks. I downloaded Vundofix V6.5.8 and it found no files. I am running windows XP hone edition SP2.

Allow Spybot to fix any "red" items.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
