Hi, i'm infected with some sort of spyware somehow, and i can't find it. I've run numerous virus scans and spyware scans, with loads of different checks.
Whenever i open up my internet, every so often pop-ups come up, from "Win an xbox 360!" "Celldorado ringtones!" "Party Poker" and even sometimes- Pornography popups.
Nothing can block them, and nothing has detected whats causing the probem.
I use Internet Explorer, the one which comes on Vista, and i've scanned my computer with..
Norton Anti-virus
Avast Anti-virus
Spybot S and D
AVG Anti-spyware
And...thats all the come to mind...
It's really getting on my nerves now, and i'm completely stuck on what to do, so any help is appreciated. Thanks

Also- I have a Hijackthis! log, however this isn't the forum to post it on. I'll make a topic there and link this to there also.

Now that you have an open HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, you shouldn't make any changes to your system.
Doing so, could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

I'm closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team.
If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a PM.
