Contextual Platform Adsoftinc

Unread postby ArtLab » December 18th, 2008, 1:11 pm

For the last 3 weeks or so I have been bombarded by all sorts of unrequested pages and popups from something which calls itself "Contextual Platform Adsoftinc". This happens both in IRC and Firefox. I have tried about 5 different spyware removal programs all to no avail. Please help me with this very annoying problem. Thanks and regards.

Here is my HJT log:

Please note in previous message where it says "IRC" it should read "IE". Sorry about the error.

This topic has been closed.

We're sorry but it is unlikely you did not receive a response to your topic because you posted a reply to your topic prior to receiving a response from a helper. Our helpers are looking for topics with zero responses. When you post replies to your own topic, it no longer has zero responses, and so it appears that you have received help when in fact, you have not.

Please wait for a helper's response in the new topic you have started, and do not start additional topics. Duplicate topics will be closed.
