About 2 weeks or so ago I could surf the internet without absolutely no pop-ups or ads popping up but now, every site I go to It has pop-ups and ads. I ran spybot and it picked up about 4 issues such as Advertising.com, Avenue A Inc., etc. I restarted my computer after it got rid of it and ran spybot again and it found the same problems, I went to having no issues to having new ones everyday.


Thank you in advance to anyone who can help me with these issues.

~ Travis.

Two suggestions come to mind.
First, download, install, and update the free Ad-AwareSE sypware application which complements Spybot S&D.
Second. Run both of these in "safe mode," allowing them to delete the files.

I have Ad-Aware but I can't seem to find it on my computer, I'll boot to safe mode and run the programs though.


Thank you.

Well I run spybot everytime I turn on my computer and it gets rid of it temporarily but when I start my computer up again and run spybot the problems come back.

May I then suggest you post a HijackThis! log to our forum where BC's great team of volunteers can walk you through getting rid of whatever spyware you have?
