I seem to have something having taken over IE. I get popups, and as much as I try, I can't kill it. I have followed about 95% of the "before you post" having used slightly different tools (like Panda for the online scan) but more or less done each thing including spyware and virus scans from multiple reliable sources (Adaware, MS/Giant, Spybot, McAfee, Panda...)

One of the other GTG posts suggested that it was trojan.vundo, and I downloaded fixvundo.exe, it found several instances, and then told me I was clean. I reconnected to the work network, and my popups began again. :tazz:

I seem to be most troubled by 020 pmnnl perhaps? But hijack says that deleting it won't make it go away. Below is my HJThis log (word wrap turned off before copying): (Any help is appreciated! TIA)

Hi and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. :tazz:
I apologize for the delay getting to your log, the helpers here are very busy.

Before we can get started on fixing your problem you must change the location of Hijackthis. It should not run directly from your desktop or a temp directory. Please create a directory on your c: drive called c:\hijackthis and download and unzip hijackthis into that directory. Run the program from that directory from now on. It is essential that you follow these steps or certain important features of the program will not function correctly.

Once you have Hijackthis running from a permanent folder, please reboot and post a new hijackthis log.
