I have tried and tried, and cant get rid of outerinfo. I got Ad Aware and it ran once, but now I get a blue screen error that my computer has shut down. Outerinfo is still there and I get popups in both IE and Firefox. Ito lose my mind because my browsers have a mind of their own. Sorry I lost part of the sentence, it wont let me type it.

Thank you! Outerinfo is gone and my system seems to be running a little bit better, but I'm still getting a whole bunch of new pages opening up. Maybe I have more than outerinfo that I need to clean out. The rogueremover said I was clean. I'm not sure what elseto look for. One of the things that is happening is that sometimes I'm not able to type something, almost like a key doesnt work. This time however I am able to go back and fix it. Sometimes a couple words dont show up and I have to go back and add them in. It's getting very frustrating.

Install the program below. If it finds Vundo during its scan, run the vundofix.exe in the second link.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Please download VundoFix.exe
to your desktop.
Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
Click the Scan for Vundo button.
Once it's done scanning, click the Remove Vundo button.
You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
When completed, it will prompt that it will reboot your computer, click OK.

Note: It is possible that VundoFix encountered a file it could not remove.
In this case, VundoFix will run on reboot, simply follow the above
instructions starting from "Click the Scan for Vundo button." when
VundoFix appears at reboot.
