I'm New to this place, but i registered because i need major help and i dont know what to do. My computer has become impossibly annoying to use because of pop ups that just will not stop. I have done numerous scans, spy bot, ad aware, but still no luck.
I also found this site http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/addons/vx2cleaner.shtml
I got the VX2 add on for Ad-aware se. When i run it, it says "New VX2 variant found. Click 'clean' button..." So i click Clean, ans it says "Clean Failed. Check for a new version of VX2 Cleaner".
I got all this crap from an .exe file i shouldn't have opened.
The pop-ups are very frequent and most got to the ad-w-a-r-e.com URL first and then to some other site (usually advertising some spyware removal thing). Also sometimes there are flash ads that pop up in the middle of the screen. At this point I hate life because its useless without my comp and i need serious help.
Here is my log.

:thumbsup: Welcome to Bleeping Computer, Haiduz.

You have the latest version of VX2. Download L2mfix from one of these two locations:

http://www.downloads.subratam.org/l2mfix.exe
http://www.atribune.org/downloads/l2mfix.exe

Save the file to your desktop and double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts, then open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop. Double click l2mfix.bat and select option #1 for Run Find Log by typing 1 and then pressing enter. This will scan your computer and it may appear nothing is happening, then, after a minute or 2, notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it into this thread.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run option #2 OR any other files in the l2mfix folder until you are asked to do so!

if you receive, while running option #1, an error similar like: ''C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe,
C:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt the system file is not suitable for running ms-dos and microsoft windows applications. choose close to terminate the application.."...then please use option 5 or the web page link in the l2mfix folder to solve this error condition. do not run the fix portion without fixing this first.
