So, the other day, I got the limewire virus where it opens itself endlessly. I've uninstalled it, but I still think I have something on my computer as my computer runs stupidly slow and I get porn pop ups and other search engine pop ups while using Google in IE. I've ran ad-aware, AVG, and AntiVir a couple times in safe mode and they catch something, delete it, but I still have the problem. Any ideas what it is I have or how to get rid of it? Thanks a ton!

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

I ran Super anti spyware and all seems to be perfectly fine. I almost feel stupid for having it be that easy, thanks a lot! :thumbsup:
