#$@! WinFixer 2005 Popups [CLOSED]

All of a sudden, I started getting popups designed as a yes or no dialog box telling me that 'I should let WinFixer scan my registry' or something. No matter what I click, it opens up their website and prompts me to download this piece of crap.

This seems to be happening in all of my browsers (IE, Netscape, Firefox). I did multiple scans with Microsoft Antispyware and Spyware Dr. I did a HijackThis thing and deleted everything that it found. All to no avail. Please help. Also, is there a way to fix this without downloading more scanning apps? I've tried soooo many like CCleaner and AVG and the whole lot. There should just be a file I can delete, right?

Welcome to GTG.

I'm afraid so. You have to use other tools to help us diagnose your problem. Otherwise, it will be like looking for a needle in a haystack. And when it comes to spyware/viruses, that's a big haystack :tazz:

OK, before we continue on, I want you to run these if you haven't done them already (skip them if you ran them already - this is standard procedure, so you must run them, if you want we can tell you which ones you can uninstall at the end - just ask us ;) ):

Please read this topic and follow the steps outlined there. You must install XP SP1a (hold off on SP2 until your computer is cleaned up) before we can proceed any further. Without it you are wide open to many security attacks. After you do all that, post a new HijackThis log.
