I have a Dell computer with windows XP media center version I believe it's called. We just had it wiped because of a virus and now it seems we have another one.
Symptoms: pop up ads even when all browsers are closed and have been closed for hours. Ads: Internet Explorer pop ups typically random weird sites or requesting facebook information. Fake outlook express email ads, we don't even have outlook I don't believe. Also last night at 4:30 in the morning the windows media player popped up and started playing johnny cash music which we don't have on our computer, we have no music in fact.
Tried: Spybot search and destroy, Malawarebytes and Microsoft security essentials. MSE has picked up a lot of trojans since we got the computer redone about a month and a half back but we have never seen damage from them beyond these ads.
Any help would be appreciated. I have basic knowledge of using the registry if needed to fix.
