Hello. I've been having a problem since July 31st, I think it was. I was on the internet, when all of a sudden, from what I can remember, I got lots of popups, and under ctrl-alt-del, there were some running programs listed like program1 or something. There were also new icons on the desktop and I think some other problems. Sorry, I don't really exactly remember. Anyways, I rebooted, and managed to fix some of the problems by running ad-aware and spybot, and manually deleting some stuff. But theres still some remaining problems.

So here are the current issues.. Whenever the internet is connected, mostly when internet explorer is opened, every few minutes I get popups like Amaena, ad.yieldmanager, adfarm, drivecleaner, ilead.itrack and mpmediaholdings, which show up on the toolbar and I can close right away. Also, there are popunders which I don't see until minimizing any running programs and that don't come up on the toolbar. Some of these are cheappress, dofact, greatbulletin, gojournalists, realrealities, img.mediaplex and yourtruths. :thumbsup: Also, sometimes when I turn on the computer, a program called WebHancer is listed under Add/Remove programs and in the program files folder. Whenever I run Ad-Aware, things like Look2Me and Webhancer are found, which I delete, but it always says that some files could not be deleted. Anyways, thats all that I can think of. Should I get hijackthis, I think it's called? Any help would be really appreciated!!

Hi simgirl678

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.

A member of the HijackThis Team will walk you through, step by step, how to disinfect your computer.
Once you post your log, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Read Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, as these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team.
The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies.
If you make another post, there will be 1 reply.

The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.

Stelios :thumbsup:
