Hi , I am hoping someone can help me with the annoying popups I keep getting while surfing the web.
I have run virus scans (CA security suite), Ad aware SE personal and Spybot search & destroy. The popups seem to come from mobile phone ringtone sites and general "meet new friends sites". I also noticed that the prefix in the browser address is "CiD" , hope this helps.
Here is my Hijackthis log which is the latest version.
Regards Chris.
