When I changed to Roadrunner I started getting a popup every time I went to a different page using Explorer.

Of course, Roadrunner claims that I got some spyware or something but I have a network with three computers and they all started having this problem at the same time, so their explanation is a smokescreen!

I suppose I need a popup blocker of some kind but in today's environment, I'm afraid of any kind of download like this. Can someone recommend a reputable popup blocker (I use norton's corporate edition anti-virus). It's really a big pain to have to close a popup every time I go to a new screen and/or have all those open windows when I get finished with a search...

Thanks in advance,
zeroth

Thanks. I just fixed a virus on another forum so I got familiar with HJT and now that I ran the log on this computer I see some of the same problems in the log - don't know what to do about it, of course, but they are there - maybe we can fix it all at the same time.

btw, I'm not having any noticable problems on this computer but it is on the same network with the computer that had the virus.

But I sure hope you can help with those popups - my hand is cramped up from closing all those extra windows...

here's the log:

OK, I got rid of them - btw, when I booted back in normal mode, there was a message that one of the files needed by W2K had been replaced by a bad file - it asked for the W2K CD and I put it in and the rest of the boot went normally.

Here's the new HJT log:

I would recommend the goggle toolbar for a pop up stopper,safe free program .

I added it even though my other computer has it and it doesn't stop everything.

I can't see that it's done much good. I'm getting a couple of popups every time I change pages. It makes the web experience a real bummer.

I've thought about changing browsers but after using IE for years, I'm used to it. There must be something I can do about this!
