After running ewido, it was not able to delete four Adware.Altnet viruses, stating that it is in my hard drive.

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Altnet
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Altnet\Dashboard
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Altnet\Dashboard\Messages
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Altnet\Dashboard\Settings

Any suggestions on how to delete these without harming my computer? These are, I think, the viruses that are causing the awful, constant pop-ups. I appreciate any help I can get! :whistling:

And a quick question...when I look through Add or Remove Programs, there is a program called CFind. Is that dangerous? Or is that supposed to be there? Thanks again!!!

Please follow the procedures outlined here: Malware Removal Guide

You will need a PC which can connect to the internet

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log in a new topic in the Malware Forum

For the purpose of accurate malware analysis, Hijack This Logs are only dealt with in the Malware Forum. Posting them anywhere else will result in a delayed response

If you are unable to run any of the programmes, please ask for advice in the Malware Forum
