I have run all the suggested items in the preparation guide. I am running Windows XP Progessional which has all the latest updates. I also have always had McAffee and it is updated everynight. I am attached to a LAN and a WAN and use IBM Client Software to attach to my business system. My first problem began when I counld't attach to the WAN. I discovered that my HOSTS file had been changed. I deleted it and copyied it from another PC back onto my system and set the attributes to read only. I also noticed that some sites had been added to my trusted zones IExplore. (IP addresses and I couldn't delete them from there but was able to find them when I did a REGEDIT and deleted them and they haven't came back. That seemed to solve that problem, however, now I cannot change the attributes back to normal in my HOSTS file as I get a message that says access is denied. I also had a virus EXPLOIT which McAfee deleted. Addtionally, when I ran the suggested programs the following were identified and deleted. Spyware.CWSAddClass with file name Addclass.exe and Adware.Pouppers with file name a65d.exe and Spyware.e2give and Virus:Trj/Lowzones with file name C:\Windows\F ma.exe and Dialer:Dialer.No C:\Windows\DownloadedProgram Files\gdnUS2161.exe and Adware:adware/exact.gargainbuddy file name C:\Windoows\msxct1.ini and Virus:Trj/Agent.Apg file name C:\Windows\system32\pnp_32.dll

In addition to your suggestion I also purchased a spyware program called Spyware Detector and ran it after your suggested programs. It detected Winfixer

However, advertising popups and unwanted cookies contiune to infilterate my system as soon as I log onto the internet. I have Googles toolbar and have it set to stop pop ups and also have tried setting the pop up blocker in internet explorer also but nothing stops them. They will come up immediatly when I open my browser. If I manually delete them as they pop up then they don't seem to come back right away unless I go in and out of my browser.

Here is my HJT logfile.

List programs that can be removed using Windows 'Add or Remove'

This utility "List Installed Programs" will provide a list of installed programs. It is found half way down the page. Click on the little arrow and then the download icon that is on the new window that opens up. You can download the script and run it from your hard disk or run it without downloading.
When asked to enter the PC details - leave it blank and click OK. Ask to view the results and copy the Notepad list. Paste it in a reply to this thread.
