I am running a PC with XP at my office at work. I was gone for a week of vaction and came back and had issues with my PC. I have run all the virus/spyware programs that I have access to and pop up ads continue to come up. During the time that I was gone something infected my computer and changed the Hosts settings. I deleted the Hosts file and installed a corrected file and set the attributes to read only so that I could still use my PC over the companies network. I also found sites added to my trusted zones that I have since removed but I can not make the pop ups stop.

I have a current copy of my HiJack log but I am not sure how to send it to you.
