Your log looks clean !!

Lets run a couple of things and see if anything shows up !!

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure

Show Hidden Files :
Click Start
Open My Computer
Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options
Select the View Tab
Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders
Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
Click Yes to confirm.
Click OK

I need you to download some programs to aide in our fix :Do Not Run Them Yet

Download and Install CCleaner© by CCleaner.com

Reboot to Safe mode
Restart your computer and immediately begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard.
If done right a Windows Advanced Options menu will appear.
Select the Safe Mode option and press Enter

Run CCleaner
NOTE CCleaner deletes EVERYTHING out of temp/temporary folders. If you have anything in a temp folder, back it up or move it to a permanent folder prior to running CCleaner

SETUP
Open CCleaner
DO NOT USE THE ISSUES FEATURE!!!!

Select Cleaner (on left)
Windows tab :
Under Internet Explorer, uncheck Cookies if you do not want them deleted. (If deleted, you will likely need to reenter your passwords at all sites where a cookie is used to recognize you when you visit)
If you use either the Firefox or Mozilla browsers, the box to uncheck for Cookies is on the Applications tab, under Firefox/Mozilla

Select Options (on left)
Settings :
All options in this section are Optional. You may check any or all of these depending on your preferences!!
Advanced :
Uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours"
Hit OK

Select Cleaner again
Then click on Run Cleaner
Put check in box to not show message again.
It will automatically clean.

Close out CCleaner

Run Ewido Anti-Malware
Click on scanner
Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
NOTE:During some scans with ewido it is finding cases of false positives.**See Below**

**(Ewido for example has been flagging parts of AVG Anti-Virus, pcAnywhere and the game "Risk")

You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
If ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
If you are unsure of any entry found select none for now.
Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
Click Save report.
Save the report.txt file to your desktop.

Close Ewido Anti-Malware

Reboot to Normal Mode, run HijackThis and post a fresh HijackThis Log and the Ewido Log here

Thank You !! 8)

the pictures and ads that come up are of some asian guitarist with his mouth open facing his computer or something, a guitar set-up with pre amp, a picture of metallica

some of the normal hotmail ads do go on but usually when i start up hotmail on internet explorer, those are the ads that come up

Do the popups show up on the right side ??

When you ran CCleaner did you uncheck the Cookie removal option??


If you want lets try this:

Under Internet Explorer, uncheck Cookies if you do not want them deleted. (If deleted, you will likely need to reenter your passwords at all sites where a cookie is used to recognize you when you visit)
If you use either the Firefox or Mozilla browsers, the box to uncheck for Cookies is on the Applications tab, under Firefox/Mozilla

i put a check on both mozilla and internet explorer. the ads are not pop ups but are ads inside the webpage. they take over the space advertisers pay to put their ads on but has an image of something stupid or weird over it. its usually resized to fit over it perfectly so you can see some pixelation

Have you tried:
Start, Control Panel, Internet Options
Click on Privacy
Click the box, at bottom, Block Popups
Click Apply, then OK

I'm not sure but here are some things that may help!!

Here are a few tools that I recommend for protecting your system and keeping your system clean !!

Real Time Prevention
SpywareBlaster© by Javacool Software
Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.
IESpyad© by EHowes : This will add several hundred Restricted Sites to the Restricted site zone in IE.

CCleaner© by CCleaner.com is a good app to clean out temp files, cookies, etc

Spyware Scanners:
Ad-aware SE© by Lavasoft Scans your system for spyware and other threats
a² Scanner© by Emsi Software : Scans for Malware and Trojans on your system.

Good Free Antivirus Programs:
AVG© by Grisoft
Avast© by ALWIL Software
NOTE:Remember always have just 1 antivirus program running at a time. Having more than one running causes a conflict between the programs !! You can use one as a backup to run manually

Windows Update:
It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks
Windows Update

Firewalls:
If you have an "always on " internet connection, such as DSL or Cable, I recommend a Firewall.
A firewall will make your pc invisible to the outside world and will filter the outgoing and incoming traffic on your pc.
For a good idea of how vulnerable your system(s) are go to GRC
Scroll down to "Shields Up" Click on "Proceed" Then click on "Common Ports"to scan your ports.
Very good Firewalls :
ZoneAlarm Firewall© by Zone Labs
Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall© by Sunbelt

These next steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection
Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness.
Alternative Browsers:
[url=http://www.spreadfirefox.com/?q=affiliates&id=16458&t=82[url=http://www.spreadfirefox.com/?q=affiliates&id=16458&t=82]FireFox© by Mozilla[/url]
Opera© by Opera Software ASA

Java Plug-in© Sun Microsystems. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

Always keep your Antivirus & Spyware Removal Tools current with the latest definitions and updates !!

Using these tools and keeping them updated will reduce the risk of future infections!!

Do you have any questions??
