I have annoying pop ups that all end with yyy65. I have tried several different removal tools and programs to find out the culprit but nothing. I have found when doing a search for yyy65 that it shows the files but in no folders. There are 12 entries like that and won't remove when I try to delete them. Any ideas? You are my last hope as this is a 3 week old computer and have no probs till they started. Thanx.....Wanda

Please go here:

Malware Removal Guide

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log in a new topic in the Malware Forum

For the purpose of accurate malware analysis, Hijack This Logs are only dealt with in the Malware Forum. Posting them anywhere else will result in a delayed response

If you are unable to run any of the programmes, ask for advice in the Malware Forum

I have gotten to the adaware part. it says:
4. If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Don't run it yet!

As in don't scan it yet? It says to check for updates then it says don't run it yet....um?

Check for updates and apply the tweaks and settings it asks for and then run it. :tazz:

I have run everything and posted my reports on the malware forum and so far (knocks on wood) I have seen no pop ups for about 10 mins. Thanks so much to you and to Keith for helping.
