thanks for the nice site. It has helped me in the past with step by step guides to delete malware. I know i am a target for malware, being i watch movies online. However, it is a trade off im willing to take, considering i watch them w/ my cancer stricken and bed ridden girlfriend. Since i cant take her to the movies they come to us.

In the past, i generally would run rkill and follow up w/ malwarebytes. This time these items dont work.

Problem i have is random pop-ups. In addition, something tries to take over my default toolbar search provider. When i try to run rkill, nothing shows up to be removed. Malwarebytes would not open. I tried to delete mb, and reinstall. The exe file seems to come up missing. I tired to dl the "renamed" mb--same results. I cant get mb to work.

i'm more or less at a loss here as to what is going on. I know i'm infected but dont know what with. I do know it is not a anti-virus knockoff program such as "antivirus soft", yet that's wher eim stuck at.

as for my system-- dell 1501 inspirion laptop running windows xp home edition version 2002 service pack 3.

so any and all help appreciated.
