Hi, I am a newbie, and so Hi, to everyone, especially those who are hopefully going to help resolve my problem!
My wife has a blog and when she accesses it lately, it has a popunder window from adserving.cpxinteractive.com
Some other people have mentioned this to her as well.
I have found some older forum posts on this site regarding this, but the removal information links are out of date, or the particular issue is slightly different, although the pesky site is the same.
If I use a spare never really used XP operating system on another partition, all is well, no popunder.
If I use IE instead of firefox, no prob. , even on this main XP partition.
I should explain that I have no idea what a hijackthis log is, so please keep it simple, - thanks.
I have tried running spybot, adaware, SUPERantispyware, Nolop, and have done a Trendmicro scan in both regular and safe mode. I have tried running chkdsk r from the cmd window. My installed antivirus is NOD.
The situation has occurred also on a Sony laptop the wife just bought that unfortunately runs Vista. Also on the spare PC running XP that my son has. All these PC's have been used for blogging, which would presumably mean visiting the same websites. I prefer not to just block it, as I understand that I can do this using something called a hosts file, but I have not followed this up as I prefer to get rid of the issue.
So, does anyone have any ideas where to start? I am thinking a good slug of booze might be a good idea for me, and I do not even drink.
Any suggestions appreciated.
