Help-the popups are sucking the life out of this computer

Unread postby msolmstead » March 7th, 2009, 9:51 pm

I have no idea if I am doing this right, obviously! NPR said you all were the best.

I keep getting a system memory low due to the pop up ads that keep coming up on the internet.

This is my parents computer and we have no idea why it all of the sudden started doing this. They don't play on the computer themselves. Below is the log.

Thank you!!!

I see from your post that you've chosen to use a Registry cleaning programme on your computer.

Registry Cleaner

This is not a good idea.

Your Registry contains millions of settings which determine the operation of your computer, do you really think that altering a few will make any substantive difference to how your computer runs. To edit the Registry safely would require an inbuilt database of all possible settings, for all possible programmes, in all possible computer configurations. To my certain knowledge no Registry cleaner has that capability.

At the best, running one will make no real improvement to the operation of your computer, at the worst it may render it inoperable.

Ask yourself this, is the very real risk worth the almost negligible gain?




Uninstall NewDotNet
Although NewDotNet does not claim to be spyware, it has been associated with computer instability in certain situations. Both SaveNow and NewDotNet have been linked for computer instability according to the MS Knowledge Base Article 302463.

For more information, please see the following:
Description of NewDotNet from the doxdesk parasite database
What is SaveNow and/or New.Net?
Foistware: New Net, Inc. (NewDotNet) DLL

I recommend that you remove NewDotNet unless you deliberately installed it.
Please download LSP-Fix from the following link and save it to a location you can find later if necessary. Do not use this. See ***note below.
LSP-Fix Download Link
Please open Add/Remove programs and uninstall New.Net or NewDotNet. If it is not listed, follow these instructions:
  • From a computer that has Internet access, click on NewDotNet Removal
  • If you get "the page cannot be displayed" when clicking on the removal link.
    You may have winhelp's mvps hosts file installed, as www.newdotnet.com is a blocked site
  • Download and save uninstall6_90.exe (New.Net/Support/Uninstall exe file) to the Desktop.
  • Go to the Desktop and double-click on uninstall6_90.exe
  • Click on the OK button.
  • After removal, reboot.
***Note: If you cannot connect to the Internet after removing New.net, please run the LSP-Fix program I had you download earlier, and click on the finish button. Reboot and you should be able to get back on

Due to lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
