Poups started appearing on my PC about one week ago. My Panda AV Platinum v7 (fully updated) detected nothing. McAfee online scan reported a "VeryLince" virus, but I don't have a subscription to that, so the virus was not removed. AdAware (free version) did not detect it either.

I read through lots of threads here and tried most things. However, the problem has just kept getting worse and worse. Yesterday, ewido reported a dialer in addition to look2me. Ewido removed these, but every time I reboot the look2me is back.

As a precaution, I disconnected the external drive that I use for my work. I then went into network connections to take the infected pc off of my network. In the Network and Dial-up Connections window there is now an entry for SIXA virtual private network. It is shown as 'disconnected' - possibly because I have used my McAfee Personal Firewall to lockdown the internet connection. The last Ewido scan did not report a dialer just the look2me thing.

I have been grappling with this beast for over a week now and, finally, have had to admit defeat and ask for some help here.

Thank you (in advance),
gruff
