Help I don't know about spyware/adware/hijacking
Posted 10 July 2004 - 04:26 AM
I go online for very few things. I generally only go to espn or hotmail but occassionally look up topics on google that lead me to news related sites (e.g. cnn or foxnews). I don't use AIM but my niece does.
For the past few months I have ads that will pop-up on my computer even when I don't have Internet Explorer open. I downloaded ad-aware from lavasoft and ran the program which seemed to quarantine a lot of stuff. This seems to correct the problem for a short amount of time but it always seems to come back.
I have read the information on this website and my homepage has never changed so I don't think my computer has been hijacked as it has been described here but I could be wrong.
How can I correct this problem once and for all or is that impossible?
If you need more information from my computer please let me know and I will provide it.

Please download Hijack this
Copy it into its own folder, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".
When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, do Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
