I am experiencing pop-up advertisments to misc web ads including searchme.com and a fake Antivirus 2009 scanner. I have run multiple scans and cleanups using AdAware, Spybot Search & Destroy, and Windows Defender. The infection keeps returning. I have tried looking up the manual removal instructions for Antivirus 2009 and none of those files or registry entries seems to be present on my system.

Thanks in advance for your help. Here is my HijackThis log:

Hello JLeff,

I notice that you have Spybot's TeaTimer running. While this is normally a wonderful tool to protect against hijackers, it can also interfere with the fixes. So please disable TeaTimer by doing the following:
1) Run Spybot-S&D
2) Go to the Mode menu, and make sure "Advanced Mode" is selected
3) On the left hand side, choose Tools -> Resident
4) Uncheck "Resident TeaTimer" and OK any prompts

You can reenable TeaTimer once your system is clean.

This tool is not a toy. If used the wrong way you could trash your computer. Please use only under direction of a Helper. If you decide to do so anyway, please do not blame me or ComboFix.

1. Download this file - combofix.exe
2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
3. When finished, it will produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply please, along with a new HijackThis log.

Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall.

Please make a donation so I can keep helping people just like you.
Every little bit helps! :)
You can even use your credit card! Thank you!
