These outer info pop ups are coming at me every few minutes. It destroyed my McAfee virus product, of which I have now reinstalled, and it does catch some of these, and deletes them...but not all.....Not only do I get these pop ups, I get auotmatic updates starting as well, and my system is so slow...
This has all started though with OUTER INFO pop ups..anyone know how to get rid of this. Please help, thanks.

As always, I would like to thank the people that replied to my post. It appears it has worked, though it took hours of trying the replies posted. It looks like AVG spyware product fixed it, beacuse during the other steps I was still getting pop ups.

One thing that has changed though is my start up now is taking a lot longer..probably due to the AVG program?

I never did the uninstall / reinstall of java, but perhaps later if the probklem resurfaces, again..THANKS to all!

If you have AVG Antispyware running in the background it will slow startup. I believe you may have downloaded the 30 day trial. You can change the settings in the program so it doesn't load at startup.

You should post a Hijack This log. As the warning said. You probably have more malware.
