[FONT=Times]
I have read the FAQ and run both cwshredder and spybot. These have temporarily removed the pop ups and redirects but upon rebooting it all comes back.
I have read about several solutions on this site but have yet to see one specifically for windows ME users. I am not the most saavy tech and so am nervous to try these other solutions without some specific ME advice.
Thanks in advance for any help given.

Here is my Hijack this log:

Hi, rollingthunderland,

Perhaps I can walk you through a fix for your ME.

You have already scanned with Spybot.

Please download Adaware: http://www.computerc...s-file-292.html
Install by double-clicking on the downloaded file.
After installing but before running, update Ad-aware by using its Globe icon.
After updating, shutdown and restart Ad-aware.
Ad-aware is ready to scan and clean your system following these steps:

Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Scanning Engine:
"Unload recognized processes during scanning."
Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Cleaning Engine:
"Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."
Press "Scan Now"
Check option "Use Custom scanning options"
Check option "Activate In-Depth Scan"
Press "Select drives\folders to scan"
Select the active partition which is usually C:
Press "Next" to let Ad-aware scan your drives...
If it finds "bad" files and registry keys, press "Next" again
Right-click in that pane and choose "select all"
Press "next"
When it asks to remove all checked items, Press "OK"
Close Ad-aware, reboot your system and go on to the next step below.

Download: "StartDreck", from here:
http://www.niksoft.a.../startdreck.htm

Unzip to its own folder and start the program,

Press 'Config'
Press 'Unmark All'

Check the following boxes only:
Registry -> Run Keys
System/drivers> Running processes
Press 'Ok'

Press 'Save' and select the location to save the log file
(default is the same folder as the application)

Post the log in this thread.

At that point we should be able to see the hidden file that is reinfecting you.

Thanks.
