1) IE browser starts every 10 minutes or so and then tries to connect to porn like web sites (which are blocked) but left alone, I will get lots of browser windows open.

2) I do not use IE explorer, I use Firefox - so seems odd that IE is doing this.

3) Also get a message box that the culprit obviously left which says that if I have computer problems call a 900 #.

I already ran Malwarebyte, Symantec, and SUPERAntispy programs.
They say I am not infected. However some threats were removed realtime I think -see risk log.

Followed directions from instruction page. Log Files are attached.
Thanks in Advance,
