I run Windows XP pro, and a few days ago, using Firefox, I opened a new window, and this random pop up came up. I installed Yesscript to block them, but more keep popping up. At the same time, my audio disappeared (went through Run-> services.msc to turn it back on) and found my security had also been turned off.
My AVG is finding threats now, Running malwarebytes it found one, removed it, after reboot, turned off audio and security again. Firefox still gives pop ups at times. Updated it, and Adobe per their website. Hasn't fixed the problem. I then ran spybot S&D (nothing) adaware (nothing), AVG (nothing, but it trips one during the day or every few days), and Super antispyware which found a bunch, removed, rebooted. AUdio went away and security turned off again. Turned them back on. Tried to update windows but get [Error number: 0x80072EFF] when I try to access it. At times day or night which makes me think it's not just a server overload.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. If logs are needed, I'll post them once, hopefully with instructions on how to use the programs to create said logs. I'm not overly computer savy.
