First thread started here so I apologize in advance if I post anything incorrectly.

Based on advice in another thread, I downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and went through the instructions (extremely easy to follow, btw!!!)

I ran the quick scan and it says there was nothing found, however I am receiving popup windows that notify me of an "Infiltration Alert".

The alert basically says:

Details
Attack from: localhost, port: xxxx
Attacked port: xxxx
Threat: EverAd

Do you want Winiguard to handle this attack?

yes/no

I am also receiving the below message when navigating to different websites:

Insecure Internet activity. Threat of virus attack!
Due to insecure Internet browsing your PC can easily You may be infected with viruses, worms and trojans without your knowledge, which can lead to system slowdowns, freezes and crashes.

Did I do something incorrectly? I was told to make a new topid so if I did it wrong I'll fix it.

The scan I just ran stated there was still nothing found.

My computer is still running the same with constant pop-ups, memory error messages and also the IE 'are you sure you want to continue' thing. The only change is that my clock is now showing in 'military' time but when I open it up it is showing properly. Not sure if it means anything, but thought I'd add it in.

Here is the log:

Blah, it was a long day yesterday and apparently reading comprehension is the first thing to go. Did the Update and then the scan again. This time it found five files which I went into Show Results, made sure all were checked and selected delete.

The only file it stated it could not delete was the C:\WINDOWS\system32\baloon.exe, however it was added to the delete list for reboot. Went ahead and rebooted.

I've been working on it for about 30 minutes now after reboot and I haven't had the pop-up telling me about attacks. However I still get the "Insecure Internet Activity" anytime I change pages. I cleared history/cache but it is still showing up so I'm not sure if there are more places I need to check.

I ran the ATF and SAS as instructed. SAS found two Adware files and I deleted them.

The computer is running about the same as earlier. Popups haven't returned, still getting the 'Insecure Internet Activity' message when pages change or refresh and still running a bit slow.

you're welcome ,,lets see if SDFix will reveal more,

Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". <- This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.

I'm running into a problem disabling McAfee. When I right-click there is no option to exit. I saw in the linked thread there were a few other people commenting on this but I didn't see a response. Thanks.
