Hello all, thanks for the help in the past.

I run Windows XP. I keep getting popus, and my computer is very slow. A lot of times when i click on links to a website, it takes FOREVER, and there are usually a lot of red X's. Also many times it gets the unable to connect to site screen.

I run Spybot, Rogue Remover and Super Anti-spyware. I also have Avast anti-virus.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello there and welcome to BleepingComputer.
Take a look at the following page to make sure that malware is to blame for the problems you are experiencing:
Slow Computer/Browser? Check Here First; It May Not Be Malware
If this does not solve the problem for you, please follow our Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting a HijackThis Log; running all of the scans before posting your HijackThis log. Do not post your log here, but instead use our HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum.
After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer except those that are advised by a member of the HijackThis Team; doing so can cause system changes that may not be visible in your log. Please be patient whilst waiting for a response, our HJT Team is currently very busy, and as we try to deal with logs on a "first come first served" basis, you may have to wait a short while.

Hello Luke9686

It would be helpful if you could describe the pop ups and what they say.
