Thanks for all that you do.
Ok, here is the deal. My machine has been running a bit sluggish as of late, and, have been having a lot of popups on mozilla. Actually, most of the popups have been entire web pages, not just the banner ad that pops up. The It doesn't even show on the bottom of the screen. for instance, I had my web browser open yesterday, and started hearing a Sports announcement. I checked every one of my 5 tabs, and even closed them all, but, couldn't find them on any of those tabs, but, there was a web page behind my current mozilla browser, with a basketball game going on it. I have had many of those started happening. A basketball game was just one.
Also, and not sure what this is, but, you know how on some mice you can push down the middle scroll button to just use the mouse to scroll up and down the page? I.E., you push it down, it 'locks' the browser into going up or down by simply pulling/pushing the mouse? Well, that happened automatically, and I had to close my browser to fix that.
I have SpyBot running in the background, and, have been getting a lot of messages from that program about registry programs/entries being changed. Typically, spybot gives me the option of allowing or denying the change, and it did on some of these, but, on others, it did not, just the option of allowing. Also, these spybot popups were happening after another over and over again.
Last night, I ran a complete SuperAntiSpyware, and I am not getting the spybot popups so far this morning, but, I feel as if I may be infected. I did get some popups that looked as if they were from my AVGFREE program, but, was scared to click on it thinking it may be a link to a virus on a website somewhere. The last time it popped up, I did click on "heal" and since then, no issues.
Thanks for all the help. I'll do whatever you guys say.
