First I apologize for the lack of DDS file.  I downloaded the requested program, but when i try to run it, I get a message that says "Cannot run in compatibility mode" and then closes.  I have not found a work around for this.


I have Malwarebytes, Revo uninstaller, HijackThis and Adware cleaner.  My kids occasionally use my computer and i run these programs to remove some of the crap that occasionally gets installed.  Unfortunately, I am fairly certain that I downloaded the current round of issues.


Proshopper has been driving me nuts with ads, highlighted text and small pop-ups. Additionally, I am getting a series of pop-up in the top center of my screen that inform me of various programs supposedly not updated or somehow broken or infected.  Some of them redirect, don't allow me to navigate way, or simply won't go away.  I can usually get by them by hitting the X for stop downloading several times.


I have run Malwarebytes, Revo, HijackThis and Adware Cleaner.  Proshopper came up on Revo and Malwarebytes, but despite the removals, it's functioning in my browser and I'm still getting the pop-ups.


Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated!  Thank you in advance.

ran another round of Malwarebytes and Adware Cleaner.  No more recurring issues. Everything seems to be working well.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
