i've scanned with ad-aware twice, and spybot search and destroy once.
i still get the popups. it's pornographic stuff, i don't go to porn sites on my own computer.
nothing that i know of triggers them, they just randomly pop-up.
it's not like every minute they come up either, it takes quite a few hours.

plus right now i'm scanning with spybot search and destroy again, then i might do ad-aware scan.
i doubt it will work, any suggestions. i have a hi-jack this log, but it says not to post them here.
i posted it in the hijackthis section, but it just went ignored.

One thing:

How long have you had the hijack this log posted?
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently

i thought it was longer, but i just checked and it said i posted it yesterday.
it must have been past midnight when i posted it, which was before i went to sleep. so it felt more like three days.
sorry.

Dont worry, your log will be looked at. One thing, please do not make any changes to your computer. This may change the posted log and delay your fixes.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

As already mentioned, after posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
