I'm running XP on a Dell Inspiron B130 LT. I ran into a situation like this about a year ago & it was a rootkit..
The same symptoms are occurring now;
Spybot scans clear
AdAware starts then shuts down
I get random IE popups (I use FF for my browser)
I have deleted cache and temp files, defragged (it needed it anyway)
Ran System clean. YaHoo Anti Spy by CA at one point stated I had Haxdoor trojan,
done all of this again on reboot/safe mode
Online scanners do not initiate
please help, I have downloaded HJT
