This is my first time posting here, and I am at my wits end!!

Almost everytime I go to new web page, another one pops up in front, full page size. Here's a sampling of the sites that pop up....

Everytime I run Spybot, I get the same results, after it's supposedly found and cleaned it the last run I did....
Virtumondo, Bluestreak, commissionjunction, zedo, webtrends live, mediaplex, hitslinks, fastclick, doubleclick, and direct track.

I just downloaded hijack this, just not sure what to upload here. ANY information or help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, also, I have the vundoFix software, everytime I run it, it finds something with a different name, shuts down my computer, and when I run it again, it finds another file with another name that it says is vundo.

H....E.....L.....P! please. ;)

Warmest Regards to all....

The first thing to do would be to follow the instructions in the Preparation Guide for Use before Posting a Hijack this log. Right at the end is how to post a Hijack this log, with links. Most problems can be solved by following this guide. If any of the steps cannot be done, just skip the step and continue to follow the later instructions.

Some variants of vundo may not be detected by vundofix so the "Add More Files" option is another way of ridding this malware. These files need to be identified and posting a hijackthis log will enable an expert to advise you which files to add.

Important: Some variants of vundo malware will hide certain entries in a hijackthis log to prevent detection so you need to rename HijackThis before using it.
  • After installing HijackThis, open My Computer or Windows Explorer and navigate to the HijackThis Folder.
  • Inside the folder, right-click on the HijackThis.exe file and rename it Scanner.exe.
  • Double-click on Scanner.exe (which is still HijackThis) run a scan, save the logfile and copy/paste it into a new topic in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.
