We have "Spybot-Search & Destroy" and "Spyware Stormer". We have run these programs and still have constant popups (mostly, but not limited to "adshooter") and some unknown hijacking leading us to "search for it".
being a novice and having read the ominous warnings related to "hijack this", I don't want to forge ahead, only to discover that I'm headed in the wrong direction.

Hi perla, :thumbsup: to BC

SpywareStormer may be part of, if not your whole problem. It is listed on the Spyware Warriors Rouge/suspect anti-spyware list. http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm
I did a google search on this item and it looks like it is bad news.

Probably your best bet would be to uninstall that program from add/remove programs if you can and then run both Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware SE to try to clean up your computer. Get Ad-Aware SE here http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
Then follow the instructions from this thread about how to post a hijackthis log for someone to review for you.
