I'm having problems with popups believe it or not! There are three problems that are kinda in this category.
Problem 1: I keep getting the following message appearing in the top left of my screen in a pop up window "Sorry we could not find [url="http://http://680130.net/pop.htm"(yes"]http://http://680130.net/pop.htm"(yes[/url] there are two http://) Don't know why but it does it constantly and it even does it when I'm not connected to the Internet I've just got Internet Explorer open.
Problem 2 (it may be related I have no idea): I keep getting a prompt saying "File Download Some files can harm your computer. If the file information below looks suspicious, or you do not fully trust the source, do not open or save this file. File name: SHDOCVW.DLL File type: Application Extension From: C:\\Windows\System" I click no all the time but it keeps coming back. It seems to be when you open Internet Explorer. I'm at the point where I just want to click it so it will stop coming up.
Problem 3: When I go to log into dating sites [bleep] pops up at me! And when you go onto google and other sites casino pop ups come up. CONSTANTLY!!!
All of these things happen despite the fact that I have installed the google toolbar which has a POPUP BLOCKER!!! I'm being driven out of my mind here. Help would be very much appreciated.

If you're still having trouble, We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and post your log as a new topic in the Hijack This forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.
