I have a Toshiba Satellite P100 laptop running Win. XP Pro SP3 IE version 8. I am having problems with unrelated ads poppng up with links. For example: I am reading an article about virus protection and there is a link for more information, but when I move the cursor over the link an ad pops up for surveys or cold cream - totally irrelevant! When I use the browser's arrow to go to a previous web page - nothing happens. I have to re-enter the search criteria and strart over. I also noticed some different URLs at the bottom left of the web page: cdn.udmserve.net, or i.trkjmp.com. This morning the computer did not boot up. I had to restart twice before it loading windows.
What I have done is: Scanned with updated versions of Malwarebytes, Chameleon Anti - Root Kit, AVG Anti-Virus, and Kaspersky TDSKiller. All reports found no threats! The inside of the laptop has been cleaned to include fans/heatsinks. Fresh thermal paste was applied as well.
Thanks in advance!
