I have a user in our Co. that recently reported many new popups for the following sites..

myregfix.com
fixregister.com
uric.net (got blocked by our websense app "Adult")
and
updatepatch.info

the first three all seemed to want to goto the same site. The client is Windows XP Pro, SP1 - McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise 7 (recent DAT's). I ran spy bot and adaware (in safe mode)and it removed some items but the user was still having issues. I then checked the PC's Add/remove program list as mal-ware sometimes appears there. Nothing out of the standard corporate build.

I then checked the running processes and nothing appeared out of the ordinary..

anyone ever run into these pop ups or may know what is causing them?

My first post to BleepingComputer

I am also having trouble with these popups. Am wondering if any success has come of making use of previously posted advice by "unrepper" or any new suggestions.
