I am helping my cousin out, she has a problem with her new laptop although it didn't have this problem when new.

I have installed Spybot and AVG (from official websites) and updated to latest version and scanned, nothing found. Only a few little tracking cookies but nothing major, it removed them with no hassle.

I also got her to reinstall "MSN plus!" without the sponsor program.

I have told her to use Firefox but even when using Firefox IE windows pop up in front, spyware I should have thought...

It sometimes comes up with pop-ups saying "CiD" before them. One of them had the URL "http://www.filmon.com/indexOld/" but this one had no "CiD" in front of it.

Please help me help her. :thumbsup:

Thank you so much!

Thanks, but I have solved the problem. I went into safe mode and deleted a load of random named folders and files, wouldn't let me delete them in normal mode. Some were also hidden...

There was also a bad startup file which I have deleted using Spybot S&D.

No ads now, problem solved.

Thanks again anyway!

"uRun: [AxisIso] "c:\programdata\readmeinternetinternet.g25u1ty""

Lots of folders etc in C:\programdata that were bad.
