I have completed the following preliminary instructions:

completed "cleanup"
updated, scanned, and deleted Adaware per directed settings
completed CSshredder (found nothing)
updated, scanned, immunized with SpybotSE

Did not continue with directions due to concern about possible McAfee 8.0i conflicts. McAfee updates and scans daily. Also get Windows updates daily.
Please let me know if I need to continue with the Ewido and other online scans listed in directions.

Restarted machine and ran HJT. Log is as follows:

I have viewed other posts about Aurora but noticed each "fix" was different and didn't want to try just bits and pieces without help.

Thank you for any recommendations....

Thanks for the response....I know you guys are very very busy....

After being online several days, I have seen no more Aurora popups (for now). It appears that the initial steps per your general directions (prior to posting HJT logs) has worked--at least for now.

I will post again if the problem comes back.

Thanks again for having the site with such useful information and step by step directions!
