:thumbsup: I have Internet Explorer browser and might have been affected by a virus or adware because it automatically comes up every minute or two with one of several web page addresses. This happens right over what I might be doing at the time. Even if I'm off-line , the browser will try to get the web page up and will, of course, "not find it".

I have Windows XP home edition with Norton anti virus and firewall. Norton has found several virus and has isolated them. I have reviewed browser internet options and can not find anything to change its coming up with these web pages. One web page appears to be a spyware sales deal.

Web pages coming up have been :
www.jimbutts.com/stuffs
www,freebyf.com,warning.warning,warning,warning,warning/fr.html
http://terra.es/personal6/dames5/nger.html

I wouldn't try the last one as this could be the culprid that started the problem.

Can anyone help me find a solution. Writing this message has been interupted 3 times with these pages coming up. Chumvi

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.
A member of the HijackThis Team will show you, step by step, how to disinfect your computer.

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
