I am using Internet Explorer, with Excite as my home page. Ads keep popping up, sometimes when I switch sites and sometimes while I am just reading something on a web site. Tazinga is one that has just started to show up and others tell me I won a Walmert giftcard or should become a millionaire by working from home. I have Norton installed, tried Ad Aware,Combo Fix, Rkill, fileAssassin, Trend Micro, TDSSkiller and Malwarebytes. It is driving me crazy. When I pull up windows task manager it shows multiple svchost.exe running, and 3 iexplorer.exe files running. Periodically (several times a day) my computer locks up or loses its connection to the internet. Any suggestions?
