Ok, I am fairly experienced with spyware removal but this one has me very confused. I have run Ad-Aware, Spy Sweeper, MS Antispyware, Norton antivirus, and AVG Antivirus. I have gotten rid of a lot so far, but there seems to be one more left that I can't find. It will generate pop ups even when not surfing the internet and it starts up with windows since I can leave it alone after startup and it will happen. I have gone through the hijack this log but I can't figure out what is causing it. I think it is loading itself inside another dll but I am not sure. I have posted the log below and any help would be appreciated.

Hello Gamblor and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. Let's start with this.

Print these directions or copy/paste them into a Notepad document and save it to your desktop. Close any programs you have open since this step requires a reboot.
  • Download l2mfix.exe and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click l2mfix.exe to start the installation.
  • Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts.
  • Open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop.
  • Double click l2mfix.bat and select option #2 for Run Fix by typing 2 and then pressing the Enter key.
  • Press any key to reboot your computer.
After a reboot, your desktop and icons will appear, then disappear (this is normal). L2mfix will continue to scan your computer and when it's finished, Notepad will open with a log. Post that log along with any additional information as directed below.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run any other files in the l2mfix folder until you are asked to do so!

Post the new L2m logs back here along with a new HijackThis log and I will review the information when it comes in.

OT
I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.
