Hi there!

I've recently started suffering from a constant stream of unwanted IE pop-ups for sites such as winfixer and various server4 and firstadsolution domain names. Also, almost every day, four desktop icons (Advance Your Career, Casino Games, Guaranteed Approval and Meet Sexy Singles Today) and three IE favourites links (Get Out of Debt, Meet Someone Special and You’re Approved) are added. I've also noticed that random words in normal webpages (eg: the word "million" on a BBC news page) have become hyperlinked to the server4 address. The Windows pop-up blocker is also disabled each time I start IE.

I've run Fix-it Utilities 6 virus scanner, Spybot and Ad-aware in normal and safe-mode, as well as with System Restore disabled. In addition I've tried Symantec trojan.vundo and Housecall anti-virus when booted normally. I'm running Windows XP Pro using the Windows firewall.

I also did a file search for .exe's created/modified in the last week, the results were: ati2dvag.exe, ati3d1ag.exe, ati3duag.exe and cdrtc848.exe - I certainly haven't updated any drivers in the last week, and as far as I'm aware the only software update has been anti-virus and Windows automatic updates.

Finally, here's a HijackThis log:

I've forgotten which one fixes this so bear with me

You may want to print out these instructions for reference, since you will have to restart your computer during the fix.

Please download AproposFix from here:
http://swandog46.geekstogo.com/aproposfix.exe

Save it to your desktop but do NOT run it yet.

Then please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.


Once in Safe Mode, please double-click aproposfix.exe and unzip it to the desktop. Open the aproposfix folder on your desktop and run RunThis.bat. Follow the prompts.

When the tool is finished, please reboot back into normal mode, and post a new HijackThis log, along with the entire contents of the log.txt file in the aproposfix folder.
