Hi, for the past 3 months I been having MAJOR issues with Windows XP Professional 32-bit SP2 IE 7.0. Everytime I even start up the browser it starts poping up pages that are driving me nuts! None of them are porn as I do not visit porn sites so I have no clue how I got this problem. It says cpvfeed.com on the new tab that opens up and then the pop up is something stupid like advertisments for whatever im looking at on the other tab. For example if Im on ebay loking up PS3s, then a popup page will occur with a ton of different things on PS3s that I can buy. I have tried MANY different spyware killers and popup killers and virus removers and nothing seems to fix it. they always find a ton of cookies and nothing more... even scans back to back find new cookies. Im going abesolutely bonkers trying to keep these things closed down and they keep on poping up. one popup I get regularly is one with some hillbillys laughing/talking about some rabbit biting a snake and chasing it away up a tree... and I see it popup like 100 times a day... Im begging you guys to please help me get this crap off my PC.

Ive been currently using Xoftspy and PCcillin, and Spyware Doctor (among MANY others that Ive deleted since they found nothing) and they find cookies but nothing more and after I delete them I still have issues with these annoying popups. Im at my wits end. I read somewhere about using an app called hijack this and it seems to find nothing that I can identify. Can someone help me rid this from my PC so I can cruise the internet without going crazy? I installed Firefox thinking that would be a-ok since MS sucks, but Firefox does the same dang thing! help please.

Have you tried a scan with Superantispyware in safe mode yet?

I just got done using it and it found 105 cookies that the others didnt find and 1 virus. I removed them and rebooted the PC. Rescanned the HD again and found 0 infections... started up ie7 and within 5 seconds I got two popups. :thumbsup: I guess that doesnt work either. anyone know what to look for in hijack this?

Now that you have an open HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, you shouldn't make any changes to your system.
Doing so, could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

This topic will now be closed, since you have an open log posted.
If you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
