I have been through each step to automatically remove malware (probably 20 times). I have always had SpyBot S&D, Ad-Aware SE, and Microsoft AntiSpyware on my computer and ran them regularly. I use Symantec Antivirus Client, run Microsoft XP, and IE. I do not know what exactly has taken over my computer. Scans will find and remove bad programs, but as soon as they are removed, another one will install. Popups are out of control. I really appreciate your time to help me! Thank you! You guys are so nice.

Hi Shawn,

Your HJT log looks clear. However, I do notice a surfiet of security programs. Please note that running more than one Anti-Virus programs (like Norton and AVG) is not good. Besides taking up resources, the conflicts between the two programs could hamper the performance of your PC !!! Please uninstall one of them.

Can you tell me something more about the popo - ups or the programs found by anti-virus programs or the infections identified ??
