Hi there,

Over the past week I have begun to have annoying pop-ups display themselves while I am using the computer. Usually these direct themselves to a WinAntiSpyware page, or to a url.cpv page. They are fairly infrequent, but just often enough to get on my nerves. I have tried everything in my power to get rid of them. I have used Spybot, Ad-Aware, Spyware Begone, and XSoft Spy SE. None of these have done the trick. I have also used FixVundo and the Symantec Vundo Remover, again to no avail.

Interestingly, every now and then, maybe every half an hour, my taskbar changes from the normal XP type blue bar, to the grey Windows 98 type bar, and then back to the XP type by iteself. I have no idea why this is happening. Also, it appears as though something, malware or not, is downloading large volumes of data. After a bit of trial and error, I have found that it is something running the svchost.exe process that is downloading the data, as when I block this in ZoneAlarm the downloads stop.

Here is my log:
