Thanks. I have now gotten all the way to run hijackthis. However when I went into safe mode with networking to check the items on the file to see if any were dubious..... I got the very same popup adds on IE that were the syptom of the infection (I use firefox) So I killed the popup and shut down. Looking at the processes that were running the thing that strikes me is that there were 5 svschost.exe processes running which seems like a lot. Do I just start the whole thing again? (I use an old computer also, I guess I could email the hijack log to myself to post it. I am using the old one now)
One other thing is that this whole problem began at the very time I got a router. Could it be what is infected? (Old computer runs ME, it's so buggy anyway it's hard to tell if it is infected, it goes blue screen every 15 minutes anyway.) Thanks for the help so far.
