Have tried several posts on spywareinfo.com, and have
gotten no! replies. This sucks. I have used:
Aluria's spyware eliminator
Pest Patrol
Spybot search and destroy 1.2
Ad-aware 6.0
Reg Mechanic

None of these programs have helped. I am constantly
finding new reg keys, spyware progs and the like, but the
problem is on-going.

This is my main symptom. Randomly, IE windows, full
windows, will open with advertisements ranging from anti-
0spyware progs to singles site. These occur whether or
not I am browsing the internet, and often occur 3-4 times
at once.

I am on a cable broadband connection, and am using McAfee
virusscan 7 and firewall 4.

I need some help here. Either I eliminate the problem, or
re-format the C: drive.

Any and all help appreciated.

Much love!

Hi PGPhantom, Just adding some directions in case needed -

Download 'Hijack This!'. http://www.spywarein.../HijackThis.exe
Save it in a convenient permanent folder such as C:\HJT\, double click 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, 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.
