I had a great success with getting help here for another problem a few months ago, so I'm hoping for some assistance again.
Last night, I decided to run Spybot S&D, as I normally do every other day or so, on our other computer. I noticed one title which I'd never seen before, called "Win32.PornPopUp". It apparently detected 4 entries, all - from what I can discern - from adbrite.com or some such.
I immediately looked it up online, and saw that anything I could find on the title said that people were unable to fully remove it, as after restart it would immediately return. I decided to shut down and reboot my computer, and immediately run Spybot at startup. Behold - Spybot showed only a single threat - one entry for Win32.PornPopUp. I shut it down, as it was very late, and decided I'd better check the other computer, this one, this morning. Lucky me, 7 entries for Win32.PornPopUp.
Can anyone help me rid the computers of this little beast? Both laptops are quite identical; literally the same machine. Both are running Windows XP, I think SP3. Both have SUPERAntiSpyware, MalwareBytes, Spybot w/ Tea Timer running, and Avast! Antivirus.
I'd love any help anyone can offer on getting rid of this before it takes a turn for the worse! Thanks so much in advance!
