I think I have been hacked; when I access the internet random popups from admarketplace and other sites come up, also a message saying genric host win 32 has accessed a problem and needs to close.
I have used malwarebytes and spybot search and destroy and have been reading previous forums
I was reading this forum post and the problem is somewhat similar to mine
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic221224.html

the helper person on that post suggested that the person may have been hacked and may need to reformat
I have tried system restore and the virus or malware keeps on returning
so could it be a rootkit or backdoor trojan?
what do I need to do?
and how exactly would I reformat and where would I get the window disks from?

This problem has been very frustrating and happened when my brother tried to jailbreak his itouch and downloaded something stupid I believe

I would appreciate any help and am thankful for those who would be willing to do so -thanks in advance
