First off, I'm a computer dummy. I've tried reading some of your articles and all it's done is have my head spinning. Might as well be reading French and not have a French dictionary in sight.

I wanted a history cleaner since I noticed there were still URL addresses on my I/E even after performing temp file/cookies/history deletions. So I downloaded off www.freehistorycleaner.com . Right after that I started getting pop up ads even though I have the Google toolbar. So I uninstalled the free history cleaner program but I'm still getting the pop ups. The top of the pop up ad shows Ad - Microsoft Internet Explorer. Also, the drop down menu under Tools has Free History Cleaner on it. I would like to get rid of that.

At this point, I'm willing to pay for a program that will block ALL pop up ads and also clean my history on my I/E. I was also reading your article on MRUs and I can't make sense of it. Will not touch any free ware again! I do have Pop-up Stopper free edition, Lavasoft Ad-aware and Spybot S & D already and it hasn't helped get rid of the pop up ads.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

We need a closer look at what's happening.
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.
