I am posting this on behalf of a friend who I help with his Dell PC. He is running AdAware Personal SE, Spybot S&D, AVG Free Antivirus, and Zone Alarm Free, all up to date / current. He has all current MS security updates. His default browser is MSIE on a Windows XP Home Dell PC. Internet access is via cable modem. The popup ads start as soon as Windows starts, in a MSIE window, even though he has not started MSIE.

The Hijack This! log from his PC follows. Thank you in advance for your help, and for providing this service.

After updating him to the latest Spybot S&D, Adaware Personal SE, and scanning with them, and with HiJack This, and killing the 18 processes below, he is still getting popups, though not as many.

These are the processes I killed with HiJack This!

After deleting the above, his system boots normally, and his programs operate without trouble. However, there are still some popups in MSIE windows, even though he has not launched MSIE. The following is the latest HiJack This! LOG file:

The only entry above that catches my eye as strange, is:

O20 - Winlogon Notify: RunOnce - C:\WINDOWS\system32\l60ulgd9160.dll

If I kill it, a similar looking dll will come up on the next boot - as if it is a random name.

Any suggestions what to look for, what to kill?

Thanks!
