Annoying Popups from...

brandarama, adnetserver, broadcaster, uncover the net, pureplay, optimizerx, affiliates.copeac.com, jack9, allyourbrands, etc. (all sites I now plan to never go to, even if I need something from them)

I've run AVG virus scans, Ad-aware scans, SmitFraud, Spybot S&D, I've deleted things I thought were suspicious from my Hijack report, but have gotten nowhere (btw, is Spybot supposed to try and delete SmitFraud files?).

I think I ran some sort of Trojan infected file (I got AVG virus protection AFTER the fact...). I got the file removed, but something somewhere is still not right. Usually, one full-sized window ad appears, and quite often, a second smaller (but oddly looking) window also appears.

And, I think AVG has begun shutting down windows explorer periodically to prevent something worse from happening... not sure what, but probably related.

Anyway, here is my HijackThis and SmitFraud reports. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Nevermind?

Unread postby jamma6 » August 11th, 2007, 3:35 pm

While reading about someone else's problem,
they suggested ComboFix.

We had very different problems, but it seems
to have done the trick.

I haven't had a problem in 45 minutes or so.

If it comes back, I'll be sure to let you know...

Thanks for being there!
