Also, this popup appears every 5 minutes :

I have run Norton, McFree, CCleaner and what-not-software but nothing seems to work! :tazz:

I read one of the posts for a similar problem ad thus downloaded Ewido but unfortunately the infected system is running WIN 98 and Ewido is designed for WI 2000 and above. ;)

I' pasting my logs from the Hijackthis and I'd REALLY appreciate your help!

Thanks in advance,
Tanya
