Several weeks ago, I tried to download a song off the internet. BIG MISTAKE since I'd never done it before and didn't know what I was doing. The door came open and all the BUGS flew in.

Heres what I've done so far:
Run numerous scans on: Microsoft AntiSpyware, Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware SE Personal and Norton Antivirus and cleared off all reccomended spyware.

Set my popup blocker higher, added numerous sites to my 'Restricted Site' and blocked numerous sites in Privacy.

Ran Hijackthis and CWShredder and downloaded a recommended host file.

Problem that remains: I'm still getting numerous popups that don't quite load. I get 'page cannot be displayed' and 'cannot find server' on these popups.
How in the world can I get rid of these??
The web site that comes up over and over again but cannot load all the way (it gets page cannot be displayed) is www.loadingwebsite.com. Anyone ever heard of this website? If anyone has any suggestions I would be grateful. Thanks!

I've just tried to access the website www.loadingwebsite.com but it came up with access denied, probably because I use Firefox and in addition strictly control the cookie rights. So I suggest you download and use Firefox 1.0.4 then use Hijackthis to create a log and post a new thread in the appropriate area of this forum for one of the experts to analyse.
I'd like to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like his passengers
