Hello all, I've recently attempted to clean all spyware off of this machine running Windows ME. I've ran spyware scans using the latest definitions of Ad-aware, Spybot, and Hijack this. I've also attempted to delete certain .dll's that I read were malicious. But I'm still getting a browser pop-up about every 5 minutes. If my default browser is IE, the popup goes to some type of ad rotation including URLs such as: http://offers.shopathomeselect.com/agentinstall.asp?id=bm1004, http://z1.adserver.com/w/cp.x;rid=52;tid=2;ev=1;dt=3;ac=29;c=48;nc=1, and http://www.partypoker.com/index20100_np.htm?wm=2574506. If my default browser is Firefox, the popup goes to the address "%1" which in turn loads mozilla.org. Here is my HJT log, in which I can't find anything that would be causing these popups:

Hi and Welcome to TF

Please consider moving to IE6...as IE5 is full of security flaws.

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run the following tools. Download and update the databases on each program before running.

Also make sure you are using the the latest version (1.99.1) of HijackThis and it's installed in it's own folder on the root drive. (C:\HJT)

Make sure you run CWShredder and the others.

Run hijackthis and fix the following entrys...

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = about:blank


Please run an online scan at http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/com/activescan_principal.htm
Once it has finished save the activescan log. Then post that log in your next post along with a new hijackthis log.
