Since you have hijackthis, are there ANY "BHO"s in there?
So for the past couple months, my dell computer running on windows XP was infected with adware programs like zedo and so on. majority i was able to clean out with hijack logs, adaware se, spybot search& destroy, etc
but there is one that i'mnot sure how to remove. it pops up full screen ads randomly at different times. they do not pop up though if IE explorer isn't open. if i leave an IE window open for some time, then 25 of these will pop over say an hour or so. some of them spybot is able to block the content (but not from popping up!) most of them not though. it's annoying and im not sure where to attack the problem.
if anyone could help me or point me in the right direction that would be wonderful.
thanks in advance!
