[SIZE=7]Ok,somewhere along the line someone or thing has downloaded a load-o-crap onto my pc and it is now so infected with adware it ain't funny.
I have run Spybot and Adaware a zillion times to no avail. I have a window that pops up when I start the pc that says IPHLPAPI.dll file cannot start.Check the file to determine the problem. So I click ok it goes away. Don't know how to fix it. When I am online these web-nexus ad pages keep popping up. What can I do?!?
I am running Windows 98 SE on a dinosaur of a pc. Please give me some ideas? I am going :thumbsup: crazy!!

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.

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.

I too was getting hammed with Web Nexus Network adware ... but I found a free answer! I was so happy to get rid of those pop ups, I wrote a post on my blog about how to do it. I put a link on the upper right sidebar titled "Web Nexus Network No More!!!" (So others having the same issue could fix it too) That will take you directly to the post that has a link for a free safe download.

This post is in response to a comment left on my blog (oddly enough posted in an anonymous fashion), that says the article on my site is an advertisement. I am not now, or have I ever been, affiliated with any software company at all. The above post was meant to help ordinary computer users find a fix to their computer woes. A link to a fix ... that's all. I spent quite an amount of time trying to fix my PC, and merely wanted others experiencing the same issues to have an easier repair than myself.
