Have you clicked on the block pop-ups under tools and options in FireFox and in IE?

Do you use a firewall? With mine you can configure it to not allow that stuff in. Also, clear out your Firefox and IE cache, temporary files, and all off-line content.

Spywareblaster is a good program for blocking a lot of that stuff from getting on your computer in the first place. You can find it here: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html and instructions for how to use it here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/use-spywareblaster-to-protect-your-computer/

Hello craig 245

This issue may need to be looked at more deeply. It may very well involve hidden trojan's and malware on your system.

Please read 'Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log '

Once you have done that, post a High-Jack-This log into the HJT forum section. It maytake a little time in order to fix your problem, depending on the strength of infection. But, a team member there will talk you through what to do and help you fix your system.

The forum is always busy, and so are the HJT team, so please bare with them. Allow up to 5 days for a reply. If you recieve nothing after the 5 days, you can use the 'Have not had a reply in 5 days' log at the top of the HJT forum to let the team know.

Please DO NOT try to bump your post by adding another reply to it first time around. The team will look for logs that have 0 replies, if you add somthing else after your original post, then you will give yourself a reply and the HJT team will think someone is already helping you and ignor it. Also, once you have posted your log, do not attempt to fix anything yourself. Doing so will only confuse things, so just wait for the team to help.

Good luck

I had the same thing about 4 months ago on 2 different computers it turned out to be about 5 different programs spytrooper was one of them the really hard culprit was atmclk.exe that I could not get rid of by deleteing or running about 30 different programs. the only thing that I found that worked was prevx and no I am not pushing software but it worked where nothing else would. It is free for 60 days it worked for me.


good luck
