Hello:

Whenever, I go to certain sports pages or pages that have a lot of pop-up ads, my computer starts going crazy. It will start clicking non-stop, and the names of all the pop-up ads that are being blocked will be displayed followed by the words, "Missing Trash Pop." Unless I get out of that particular page immediately, it will take me to another website trying to sell me spyware remover, or it will freeze up my computer altogether.

While it's mostly sports pages that this occurs on, it will also happen with any page that has a lot of pop-ups. What is this? More importantly, how can I get rid of it? I have SP2 installed and completely updated, as well as Norton. Also, I recently installed Trojan Hunter. Nothing has worked. Can anybody help me? Thanks!

Please Click here!, and follow the recommendations in the guide.

If you're still having trouble, We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and reply here with your log.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
