I seem to have most of the pop-ups coming from
I've tried blocking this ip in HOST files,but it doesnt work. I've also run both Spybot/Spyblaster and Ad-Aware. Both are up to date on definitions. I can't run House Call because it won't stay on the page long enough to run a scan.

Hi Tim and welcome to the forum. You have this: Winlogon Notify App Management, App Paths, Applets, BITS, Control
Panel, Controls Folder, CSCSettings, DateTime, Dynamic
Directory, Explorer X random named dll in the System32 folder Variant of Adware.Look2Me

and the free trial of SpySweeper usually remove it if the directions are followed. Before I give you that information, I am super concerned about this one: O4 - Startup: Q329115_WXP_SP2_X86[1].exe
My scanners are giving me two possibles and they are both severe security risks. I will post information about both, you use the information to do what you need to as a result of this security breach:

1) http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data...an.esteems.html
2) http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcen...l.bancos.x.html

I would take action right away, notify your bank, whatever else Symantec suggests for protecting your security. We will remove the Look2me first and perhaps SpySweeper will kill this trijan? If not, we will go after it next,tThanks.

We need to download: Spy Sweeper 4.5 - Free Trial at the bottom of this page, no other product will help us:
http://www.webroot.com/consumer/products/s...er/latestv.html Then follow these directions:

Install it using the Standard Install option. (You will be asked for your e-mail address, it is safe to give it. If you receive alerts from your firewall, allow all activities for Spy Sweeper)

You will be prompted to check for updated definitions, please do so.
(This may take several minutes)

Click on Options > Sweep Options and check Sweep all Folders on Selected drives. Check Local Disc C. Under What to Sweep, check every box.

Click on Sweep and allow it to fully scan your system.

When the sweep has finished, click Remove. Click Select All and then Next

From 'Results', select the Session Log tab. Click Save to File and save the log somewhere convenient.

Exit Spy Sweeper.

Restart your computer >>> very important

Open HijackThis and choose "Do a system scan only" then check the box in front of these line items:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O4 - Startup: Q329115_WXP_SP2_X86[1].exe
O20 - Winlogon Notify: Dynamic Directory - C:\WINDOWS\system32\nk4_disp.dll (if there)

Close all programs but HJT and all browser windows, then click on "Fix Checked"

Restart again and post the SpySweeper log with a new HJT log and your comments.

We will probably need to do more with that trojan?
