Hey all, yesterday I began getting bombarded with popups, some with obvious malicious intent (mimicking Windows and debugging options). I am not the only user on this machine, so I can't pinpoint where or when the infection was picked up. Any help is appreciated, and thanks in advance :thumbup2:

*UPDATE* Ran MBAM and it appears to have cleared up the culprit. Thanks anyway! :thumbup2:
