I have scanned my comptuer for viruses with TrendMicro online scan and nothing comes up. Plus, I have been getting a lot of pop ups also and I dont know what is going on! HELP <_<

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

How come when I click on the link to download HiJackThis, it says there is no such site...? Is there somewhere else I can get it?

Thanks for letting us know. The link we provided is from the author's site, but it appears to be down.

Not surprisingly, spyware authors often target spyware removal sites, to try and knock them off-line. Click Here for an alternative site. <_<

Your computer has a number of spyware programs that we need to remove. For more info on spyware see the Spyware Tools link in my signature.

Let's start with a couple of free programs:
CWShredder is the first to run. Here's why: If a CoolWebSearch variant is indeed running on your system, it may actually prevent you from running spyware scans. It is smart enough to detect efforts to detect it, and stop them. Download CWShredder to your desktop or other location. Close all browser windows, double click the CWShredder icon to run, then click the Fix -> button. When finished, reboot and run Spybot Search & Destroy.

Spybot Search & Destroy Download and install. Start Spybot S&D using the "Spybot-S&D (easy mode)" link from your Start menu . Click the Search for updates button, if any are found then click the Download Updates button. After all updates are downloaded, click the Check for problems button. When the scan is complete, place a check next to anything marked in red, then click the Fix selected problems button. You may need to run Spybot S&D multiple times to remove all infections.

When finished, Reboot your computer. Finally, reply to this post with a new HiJackThis log so we can look for any nasties that may have been missed. <_<

Sorry, I should have caught that. The site is currently unavailable. Spyware programs have targeted the site before, and I'm only guessing that's the problem now.

Here's an alternate source:

I also have another question, sorry this does not relate to viruses or anything but, you know how I have that Perfectnav and Incredifind on my computer. well you know how if you type in a keyword on internet explorer in the address area, well it use to search with msn search now it searches with that incredifind thing, and when a site is not operating right the perfectnav error message comes up. I dont know how that got onto my computer and I was just wondering that if I got rid of that if it wouldnt screw up my internet explorer or anything like that.
