Whenever I go to the internet these bunch of pop-ups come in automatically. I run AVG and all it detects is cookies...Norton detects stuff but doesn't do nothing. Here is my hijack log:

Try disabling the Messenger service
Assuming windows 2000
Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> Services

Scroll down to messenger
Right Click
Stop the service
Set Start-up Type to Disabled

Hope this helps


Please go here & install ALL critical updates required for your system, including service pack 1a for both XP and IE6.
Most malware is designed to attack unpatched XP systems - exploiting the available 'holes' - and can bypass third-party protection on an unpatched system. The most that can be done with an unpatched system is put a temporary bandage on it. Your system can potentially be reinfected within minutes of cleaning it.

Once you have service pack 1 installed, rescan with hijackthis and post another log.
