it all started when i got a spyware, by downloading a BoT's for online games, rakion in this case... im too busy to play so i leave it killing by him self while i study
. Anyways, i noticed my homepage changed, and on the start menu bar, next to the clock, i used o get a "system alert" so one of my friends told me to download panda Anti-virus, and so i downloaded 4 kinds, anti adware, anti spyware, internet security + firewall, and antivirus. so at the time when i had to install them, they were incompatible with norton antivirus (wich i had out of date years ago) so i had to uninstall the norton thing, once i did i succesfully got rid of the spyware and trojans and other thing's, but i wasent protected against malware as my norton antivirus thing used to prevent me from. So i started leveling up as my ordinary dy, suddenly the game minimized, and i got a pop up window...! yes, a pop up window about casino, and other random things, including ebay toys. so i was geting a bit worried, since every 5 minutes a random window used to pop up while i was playing and after i closed it, and maximized game... i was dead -.-" so it was getting pretty fustrating, and i had no choice but to download a masive anti-malware etc... but they werent helpful, the windows just kept coming and coming, so i decided to explore my own computer and try to get rdd of them manually, i seeked help from Mr. google watching other people topics and trying to do the same thing, some topics helped some not even a bit. So i saw a topic, and they mentioned that the problem was just the messenger plus patch sponsor, so i though to myself chat or play? so i uninstaled msn completely out of my computer (including the Msn Plus (CiD) sponsor) i thought it was finally over, when i got another pop up and i was dead again... so seeking for hours and hours and i saw another topic, a guy whom mentioned to delete some "things" in the "Host" folder wich i had to open with note pad... and going to add/remove programs, look for CiD (help), and going to IE properties and deleting cookies and the other things... but while my eyes were reading the topic, my mind was walking in circles on the moon of a strange universe somewhere in another dimention... since im not very familiar, it was pretty hard to catch up. but after hours and days of thinking i finally did it i figured out how to open the "host" file with note pad! and i thought this might be it, i will finally get ridd of those anoying pop ups...
----after a restart----
No!, they kept bombing my cpu with CiD pop ups, and the worst part, is that they didnt even load...
they stayed on "Internet explorer cannot display this webpage" so i was geting "confused", thinking of my loss of experience because of this CiD pop ups... couldent help it but here i am thinking of my misery, finished doiwnloading HiJackThis, trying to find a way to delete these CiD pop ups that are going end me up in a pshicopatic trauma disorters somewhere in a mental health hospital.
if anyone can give me any tips, that aren't other than burn your pc, throw it, donate it, or format it. Please i can take all of your advice.
