I have run both Spybot and Pest Control and KEEP getting all kinds of popups and spyware. I am a complete newcomer and I totally need assistance from someone who knows something. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Lowry M. Cook

Go to Tools-Internet Options-Advanced...under "browsing"....uncheck both
"Enable install on demand" entries. It's a more secure way to browse the
web. .....unchecking them makes it not possible for web pages you browse to
run or install programs on your computer without first asking your
permission via a dialog box.

Also..Click Tools and choose Internet Options
Go to the Security tab and click the Custom Level button..............
In the ActiveX section, set :
Download signed ActiveX controls: to "Prompt"
Download unsigned ActiveX controls: to "Prompt"
Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe: to "Disable"
This way when a web site attempts to run an ActiveX program you will be asked for permission. Now you will be asked whether you want ActiveX objects to be executed and whether you want software to be installed.

In the Microsoft VM section, set Java Permissions: to "High safety"
In the Miscellaneous section, set Installation of desk top items to "Prompt"

Good Stuff--->
Javacool's SpywareBlaster
Doesn't scan and clean for spyware, it prevents it from ever being installed.

Now..if you'd like some help w/ the current state of your PC...
download Ad-Aware at http://www.lavasoftu...oftware/adaware
After installing AAW, and before running the program, update by using the Globe icon.
Shut down and restart Ad-Aware.
Now press "Scan Now", "Select drives\folders to scan" and select the active partition (usually C: ), then 'next', and let Ad-Aware scan your drives.
It will find a number of "bad" files and registry keys. Click 'Next' again.
Rightclick in that pane and choose "select all" and click 'next'.
It will ask you whether you'd like to remove all checked items. Click OK.
Finally, close Ad-Aware, and reboot........

Then.....download HijackThis from
to a folder of your choice......doubleclick to open."Scan"...then "Save Log"...when it opens in notepad.......copy (edit..select all..copy) & paste (CTRL-V) the log into a new topic here--> Hijackthis Logs And Problems (OPEN)
