Well, im working on and hp laptop, it had all kinds of junk on it as far as malware and spyware and such, plus Antivirus 2010. Ive used the usual arsenal of programs, Malwarebytes, superantispyware,ccleaner, hijackthis, the machine is running xp sp3, and i have installed Avast antivirus home. ive ran mbam, superanti, and avast until it stopped picking things up, ive looked through the hijackthis logs for the out of the ordinary files and such and fixed that, so now im not pickup anything with these scanners, but i still get the popups on ie8, mainly what ive noticed going to oddball news sites, i have downloaded combofix, and i tried to run it and it said it detected rootkit activity and needed to restart the computer. it saved a log at the end but im unsure of how to read it. any help would be appreciated.

thanks,

matt
