Okay, I use Firefox, but I have tested it and this problem carries over to internet explorer as well. I very regularly get random popups. Even if I am going to a site like Google, or sometimes when I'm not doing anything at all! I know that it is probably a spyware of some sort, but I have Spybot and MacAffee and they haven't caught it. No, I can't pay for Norton or anything. Someone please help, these are getting reeeaaally annoying.

P.S. The popups are just as random as normal popups, they range from getting a Free Psychic reading to if I want dish or something. Thanks in advance!

Download and install SuperAntiSpyware (it's free). Update the definitions for SuperAntiSpyware, Spybot and MacAffee. Then reboot into Safe Mode and scan with all three. Let us know how it goes.

Maybe try reading this. I'm sure you'll get many tips and help on the issue you're experimenting. Posting a Hijackthis! log in here will most likely get you help form people who are very experimented in hijackthis! logs.

Good luck!!!
