My first problem (which is easily solved as soon as I solve my second one) is that I accidentally downloaded a program that gives me pop-ups no matter what website I'm on. I know what it's called, so I said to myself: "self, search your files for this program", and I tried to open my search thingy (start--> search or F3 while in explorer). It doesn't work. That leads me to problem #2: my search thingy. When I try to start it, it says "out of memory at line: 528". Any ideas on how to fix this?

Greetings telianathegreat, Welcome to TSF! :wave:

Firstly, what is the name of the program, and from where did you download it?
Once we have this information, we will be in a better position to assist you.

Please post back with the information.

Kind Regards,

Well, I'd rather not... I'm sorry, I know that sounds suspicious.

The real problem is the "out of memory" one, because I can deal with the first one fine.

telianathegreat,

The main purpose for asking for the site is to determine whether or not it could be considered to harbor malware and pop-ups.
Here at TSF, we do not judge people's likes or dislikes; furthermore, there is no alterior motive for asking such questions as I have.

That leads me to problem #2: my search thingy. When I try to start it, it says "out of memory at line: 528". Any ideas on how to fix this?
I am of the opinion that this is related to the 'rogue' program that you have downloaded.

The only way that I can envisage you rectifying this issue is for you to read this article..."Having problems with spyware and pop-ups? - First Steps"; follow the instructions very carefully; then, post all the requested logs and information; as instructed, in the HiJackThis Log Help Forum.
(Simply, click on the coloured links to be re-directed.)

Please ensure that you create a new thread in the HiJackThis Log Help Forum; not back here in this one.

When carrying out The 5 Steps, if you cannot complete any of them for whatever reason, just continue on with the next one until they are all completed.
However,it is extremely important to make mention of the fact that you could not complete any of the steps in your post to The HJT Help Forum; where an Analyst will assist you with other workarounds.

Once done, please be patient, as the Security Team Analysts are usually very busy; one of them will answer your request as soon as they can.

Good Luck with it.

Kind Regards,
