I'm a newbie so bare with me. I have been getting crazy amounts of popups. I've done all kinds of spyware and virus scans, even removing a lot that were found, but still the popups won't go away. Most of the popups are antivirus/spyware related. The most frequent ones are for WinAntiVirusPro2007. Some of these popups even attempt to install these things.
Even when i'm not using IE I can sometimes hear clicks like a link has been clicked. From reading other threads, I downloaded Hijackthis and here's the log:

Good day.....a couple things.....You can definately install a pop-up blocker to see if that works...in additional to virus removal, i recommend the following...a thorough scan for trojans, worms, malwares, adwares, spywares. After removing viruses ect...i would recommend reparing/cleaning your registry (with REGCURE software). My reccomendations for all your other malwares ect...Adware, spyware begone, Avast cleaner, Ace cleanup, ParetoLogic XoftSpySE, PREVX are just of the few you can try.
2nd. Also, there are some non-legitimate anti-virus programs that will try to install themselves onto your PC...do not install them...if you run then on your computer and you do a scan...it will detect itself as being a virus.
3rd. I need to know if your internet firewall has been disabled and is your computer slowing down?


I'm not currently running a firewall. Well no software one. The only thing is the one that my vonage router uses. And yes, the computer seems a bit "laggy".

Also, is it normal to have more than one svchost process to be running? Seems that 3 are running on mine.

I downloaded and ran Spybot last night, and it found 40 spies. After removing them all, the same stuff is happening.


Try using the sotwares that i indicated in my first response. i do strongly recommend enabling your windows firewall. Svchost may often show up in errors caused by viruses. What % does it use on ur PC? I also reccm that you keep ur computer update. i.e. if you have windows...keep it update by microsoft by enabling 'auto-update'. There are still definately traces of virus on your computer.


Well the adaware I was using was regular 6.0. I downloaded SE and it found a lot more stuff, including a couple trojans. Didn't have much time to check out how it was working this morning before work, but from the 5 minutes I was browsing I didn't get a popup. Maybe I'm good.


Glad that I could could help...but as a precaution i'd recommend enabling your firewall and diagnosing your pc with the softwares that i mentioned in my first post....no one software is the ultimate...some will pick-up thing others won't and vice versa...so after completing such diagnostics, lemme know the results.
