For the past few days I've been getting pop-ups from a few sites and from DriveCleaner and WinAntiVirusPro and I also keep getting warnings that my computer is infected.

I've scanned with Spybot and AVG and fixed everything that came up but it hasn't worked.

I have SuperAntiSpyware and VundoFix downloaded, and I used SAS and that didn't fix it either. I just scanned with VundoFix and fixed everything, and I thought it worked because I didn't get any pop-ups for a couple hours, but I just started getting them again. I'm stumped.

Thanks. I'll have to wait to see if any of that worked.

I read elsewhere that the Vundo infection goes through a hole in Java and I was wondering what would the best way to upgrade it. I already downloaded the newest version. Do I just remove the old one then install the new?
