Last night my husband was on the computer and all the sudden we got like 100 popups. I went through and used Windows defender/and spybot-search & destroy.. Deleted all the spyware that came up on those... But we are still getting popups from Heavy.com.. animated ones for like movies and all that.. and they don't actually popup until after the voices are done talking, and also from smashhit.com... Can anyone help me get rid of these?

I've even tried turning on the popup blocker and speficially using there website popups to be blocked. and also from http://ad.firstsolutions.com and then a bunch of letters & numbers after that... help!

Hi CindyRB8603,

Welcome to BleepingComputer!

I would suggest trying the steps in our malware removal guide. It lists our recommended malware removal steps, and if needed, assists you in posting a HijackThis log. If you have any questions, please ask.

Good luck!
