Recently, there has been lots of pop ups on my machine, so I installed BitDefender as I have a liscense for it in the office computer (3 licenses).

It deleted several trojans/virus/spywares, but it is still having troubles with popups. I looked up purityscan and I found this site hoping someone could help me get rid of this.

I even ran the OiUninstaller.exe from the Outerinfo website like some of the threads said:

ie. (http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/outerinfopurityscan-infection-seemingly-already-fixed-but-wanted-to-t184495.html&pid=1140592)

What would be the next step? It seems that it still comes back after reboot.

Thanks in advance.

Hello jaeca and welcome to BC :flowers:

What is your operating system: Windows XP, Vista etc.?

Have you run any other security programs besides BitDefender?
