Hi,

I'm trying to clean up a computer for my girlfriend's mother. She's got an older machine, a Pentium III, 256meg of ram, running Windows 98. WHole system was running slow as molasses, and LOADED with popups (even when a browser window wasn't open) which were all advertisements for [bleep] sites and related junk. so I did a virus scan using Norton Antivirus, then ran Spybot S&D, AdAware, CWShredder and Spyware Blaster. I was able to find a lot of junk but even deep scans and reboots, the [bleep] popups are still there.

I'm kind of out of ideas at this point so here's a hijack this Log, recorded after I did all of the above:

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Please go to the malware forum in my signature and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
