Whew, what a mess!! The good news is that the recommended programs have slowed the pop-ups to a trickle. I know I'm not totally clean, though, and would like expert advice before I start deleting stuff. I've run Cleanup, Ad-Aware SE, Spybot S&D, and the Housecall virus program. Also have run Norton antivirus and the spyware program provided by my ISP (Spycatcher.) Ad-Aware and Spybot identify and fix several problems, such as AdShooter, PeopleOn Page, and Elite toolbar, but they return when I reboot. I also seem to have something called caswnd that sometimes appears in the Start toolbar at the bottom of the screen. (I also see several references to it in the HijackThis log.) To top it all off, my ISP's spyware program says I have MidAddle, but it cannot quarantine or delete it at this time. (Gee thanks!) Anyways, here's my HijackThis log. Any help and advice will be greatly appreciated!!
