When I go online I keep getting unwanted pop-ups. (Additionally computer is running slow, my desk-top sometimes won't display, and not every letter on my keyboard shows up when I press it the first time.)
I'm running Windows XP with IE7.
So far I have run Spybot 1.5.2, AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 and Trend Micro House Call several times and repeatedly found and removed Tracking Cookies identified as low or medium threats (i.e. TrackingCookie.netflame, TrackingCookie.2o7). When I ran Trend Micro Antivirus 2007 I found Adware_MemWatcher, which I quarantined. But when I go online again, the pop-ups keep showing up and the problems persist.
The pop-ups are from sites such as: hxxp://www.fubar.com/join_lp1a.php Oh goodie, another one just popped up while I was typing this... hxx://quizrocket.com/dumb-test?gatherer_id=100449&utm
Just going online and opening a website (any website), the pop-ups persist and I've also had two error messages a couple of times. I don't know if they are "legitimate" messages, or crap from some adware or spyware.
The first one reads: "Internet Explorer Failed to clean infection detected on your computer. The results list will highlight all corresponding occurences in red and display necessary for future action."
The second error reads: "Microsoft Visual C ++ Runtime Library. Buffer overrun detected! Program: C\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated."
I do have a HijackThis log, which I know I'm not to post here, but in another thread.
Help me please!
