Dear Expert,

When I start my pc, "thenewspedia.com" website pops up. And it keeps poping up every 10 mins or so thereafter. I've got an AVG antivirus program in my pc. In an attempt to solve this issue, I've also tried using 'Spyware Doctor' and 'Malwarebytes' Anti Malware' scans and removed any threats raised. Yet the problem persists. I deeply appreciate your time and any help you can render. Following is the DDS.txt log..

Hi all,

I think I resolved the problem. I downloaded "Trojan Remover" and ran it. It seems to have solved my problem. Just sharing for those who had this problem. Have fun!!
