Im not sure if I"m in the right spot here for this question but I'm gonna go ahead with it anyway cause I'm really getting sick of having this thing on my computer.

I think it's hotsearch toolbar or something like that, that is causing the problem. It highlights a bunch of words on the webpage, and I have a pop-up blocker but somehow "dirty" pages still find their way in. I dont know if there are anymore problems right now but I'm sure there is. I've tried running adaware, spybot and did a test on pcpitstop but none of them found it. Can anyone help me get rid of this thing? :thumbsup:

Hi Tiara,
I moved your Topic to a more appropriate forum--don't worry about that, you'll get the hang of it later. :thumbsup:

We need to see a HijackThis log in order to help you get that junk off your system and whatever else that doesn't need to be there. Please do this:

Click on the link below and follow the steps in that tutorial so you can get a log posted:
How to post a HijackThis Log

You can of course skip step 1. But be sure to follow all the other steps and use the links in the tutorial to:

1. Download the self-extracting HijackThis.
2. Open the HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum to start a new Topic in that forum. It is important that you post your log into a new topic in that forum. If you have any problems here is a link again:

It may be a day or two before you get an answer. But it is also important that you not post again to the topic you started asking for help or wondering if you will get help or otherwise "bumping" your thread/topic. In order to work on a first come-first served basis, helpers look for the oldest topics with zero replies.

BUT, once you receive a reply, stay in the topic that you have started. Do not start another thread.

Thanks and see you in the forum. :flowers:
