Hello,

I have recently been plagued by popups on my system. I'm an everyday pc user for many years and have obviously been lucky to never have run into this problem before.

I have used both ad-aware and counterspy to try to address the problem. I have also used AVG to try to address the problem. I have run the three programs in safe mode with network and in normal mode. All three programs found and supposedly removed trojan horses found on the machine, but the popups remain.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

hi jacruz,

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.
* Please post the contents of C:\vundofix.txt and a new HiJackThis log.
