One of my clients is having a serious problem with pop-ups and spyware. I've run every spyware, malware, and ad-ware program imaginable with none of them picking up on a threat. The pop-ups still persist along with a constant slowdown (as if the PC's resources were used to the max), so I turned to HiJackThis!. Some background - this is a Dell Latitude D630 running XP with SP2. Here is a copy of her log. Thanks in advance for the help!

... Not trying to bump, but I did want to update this with a few of the sites the popups are directed to:



UPDATE... The clients computer failed to load explorer on startup - just booted to her desktop background and nothing else. I had to manually start explorer through the task manager run command.
