I have run Clean Up, Ad-Aware SE, CWShredder, Spybot and Trojan Hunter. They all found things and said they were quarantined, deleted or eliminated but I still have pop-ups.

I am going to run the Hijack This program next, but I have a quick question first.

In the instructions, it mentions that anything that is disabled in MSConfig should be reenabled first before running Hijaqck This. Well I noticed, after running all of the above software, some of the names of the files listed there are spyware files. (for example, VB Bouncer is listed there but it is not enabled right now)

Should I really enable all these programs and run Hijack This or do something else first since some of these files are still listed in my MSConfig file?

Hi GeekWannabe1, welcome to GeeksToGo

Yes you should enable everything listed in msconfig so that we can see what they are and deal with them. Leaving them disabled is not a solution. So please post a HijackThis log after enabling all in both statup and services.

Regards,

Thanks for your response.

I need to close this topic out. I have someone assisting on-site. If it doesn't work out, as Arnold says:


"I'll be back"

Thanks again for your message.
