I am getting winfixer popups.

System: XP with SP2

I have tried:
Ad-aware update with VX2 Cleaner 2.0 Plug-in
ewidoi suite

None of the above worked. CWshredder -- each time this runs it finds and "removes" VX2.Look2me but does not not remove it

Here is the log:

Sorry - I could not wait for an answer.

Based on what I read in this forum my problem was related to ssttu.dll and sstqn.dll

I was able to remove these files by using process explorer to kill the processes, hijack this to fix the registry entries and killbox to remove the dlls.

Many thanks to the folks who made these great programs and to the people who have posted such excellent advice on these forums.
