Hi All,

I'm a new member here to try and resolve an Adware/Spyware infestation on my home PC. As of Thursday my computer has been spewing out pop ups like crazy in my browser, Firefox.

I kept on seeing pages being loaded by yieldmanager.com and now ad.firstsolution.com, zestyfind.com and many others.

I have run several Antivirus, Spyware, Adware programs and they have all found infected files but none have solved the pop up problem. I have used Ewido, CounterSpy, Anti-Spyware, Spyware Doctor, Spybot all to no effect. I have also followed the Hijackthis tutorial on removing files.

I need help you guys, anyone available?

Hi There :thumbsup:

I have read your post and I think it would be wise for you to post a HijackThis log for an expert to review. I bet you are wondering what HijackThis is. Well it's a program that is simply able to show others what's going on inside your computer, in terms of infection etc..There are a number of reasons why you are getting the popups and it's impossible to pin it down to one specific cause at the moment.

I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem.

As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please wait for a few days and one of our experts will get onto fixing your computer for you.
