Hey everyone

Well Im new to this forum and I figured someone out there can maybe point me in the right direction with my issue.

Recently Ive been getting this strange pop up box when I boot up..For instance every time I start my PC right before it boots to the desktop, I get a stange pop up window that I have to click for it to load to my desktop. If I don't click it, it will just hang there until I click it. Also it seems like my browser is running extreamly slow. I mean it just lags and freezes on me all the time since this stange startup issue. The pop up box looks like some code thats all.

Anyone have any idea on what maybe this may be and a fix for it??

Thanks for your time

Hello shadyraver...

Let's let the malware experts deal with this one.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the Start Here.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Do Not reply to or "bump" your own topic...if it shows a reply, it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please start a new topic in the Windows XP, 2000, 2003, NT forum.
