Posted 07 December 2007 - 05:21 PM

Today I started getting unwanted full-page ads and search pages popping up in IE, and when I thought that was all, started getting those pesky balloons that pop up telling me how to remove a virus/trojan with "baloon" spelled incorrectly.
During the past few hours I have run BitDefender Antivirus 2008, Ad-Aware (in safe mode), and Spybot.
I've also cleared my temporary internet files, temporary files, and history...several times via various methods.

Right now I am not getting the "I have a virus" balloons, but I did just get another ad/search page.
Two pages that are trying to load are (as copied from the address bar): DONT CLICK ON THEM..:thumbsup:

I've successfully removed the "you are infected" balloon problem via the procedures in beepingcomputer.com.

I have followed the directions of http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/lof...hp/t112411.html
to remove "SearchTT", but no luck.

Any help to remove these pop-up ad pages extremely appreciated.

1. Download this file - combofix.exe
2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
3. When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply with a new hijackthis log.

Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.
