I haven't had the internet for almost a year. I just got it turned back on and from the moment I started using it, I've had these CiD popups. I've been reading about alot of people with this problem. I've tried everything I know to get rid of them: McAfee Antivirus, Norton Antivirus, SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition, NoAdware, Windows Defender, NoLop, deleted temp files/cookies....when I used Norton AntiVirus/NoLop, I was in Safe Mode on my computer (temporarily turned off System Restore).
I've installed some store-bought games but downloaded nothing from the internet since I've been back online. I installed one game that wanted to know if I'd like to install something called 'Gamespy' (I think that was the name), but I forgot to uncheck the box to install so that it wouldn't and it installed. It would start with windows and display on the desktop and I'd have to manually shut it down. I've since deleted that though. There was a CiD help in my add/remove but I left it alone. Something I've done along the line removed it from add/remove though because it's not there anymore.
I need my computer back...I haven't even been getting on the internet it's gotten so bad....PLEASE HELP!
PS: It's making my CPU run wide open...I can always tell when a popup is coming because of it.
I'm running Windows XP sp2
