Adware Adssite keeps poping up in firefox and ie. I tried multyiple kill fixes, spybot, ccleaner, bitdefender, trendmicro internet security, removeit, windows defender, avg, hijackthis...downloaded the latest security updates for xpsp2 and still no help. Interesting though in the registry the HKCU\software\microsoft is an entry for adssite i delete it and it shows back up.. None of the anti-spy/mal shows this entry..I finally found the permissions and changed them from allow to deny. MAYBE bad idea..so I thought I needed help... I did notice a alternative stream in my regedit.exe..dont know if this even has anything to do with it..just wondering what elese I may have..

Using Windows Explorer(Right click on "Start," select "Explore," and you will see the "tree' of file folders in the left side of the window. Click on the "+" next to any folder name to expand its contents)
Locate and Open the Hijackthis folder ->> Locate the Hijackthis.exe file. Rt Click that file ->> Select Rename and rename it H.exe.

Then rerun H.exe (formerly Hijackthis.exe) and post a fresh log.

Please download Combofix and save to your desktop:Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop
Close any open browsers.
Double click on combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
When it's finished it will produce a log.
Post the contents of the C:\ComboFix.txt into your next reply.
Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running.
That may cause the program to freeze/hang.
