    I have a desktop computer that pops up with Internet explorer with spam websites. It also automatically closes the internet window when I try to go to AVG website or certain pages when I search for AVG. It also would not even let me view this forum topic. I have ran avast and ad aware antivirus and the virus is still there. Are there any other free antivirus programs that work or do you have a recommendation for a progam to take care of this problem.

    Thank You for your help

    You could try renaming the hosts file and see if that lets you get to the avg site. You can scroll down this page to find instructions for that:

    If you can get to the kaspersky site, you can run their online scan:
    http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

    This will not fix anything, but it may give you more specific information about malware on your system.

    You can look through the fourth sticky above for other online scans and information about posting a hijackthis log.

    Regards.

    unknown tool bars are infested with spyware i had the same problem you are having and i got rid of all tool bars and never had the problem again they also have trojan downloaders and sometimes keyloggers so if you downloaded something and it came with a tool bar delete the tool bar this should help if not send in a hijack this log in

    Heres a megaupload.com link to the file. I renamed the file to "Can't Be 'jacked" because some virus/spyware/etc. programs wont let any program named HijackThis! run. So download run it and past the log back.

    It sounds like a spyware program you have is refusing to let it run. I think I named it "Can't Be Hijacked" try renaming it to something without the word hijack it it, like ABC or Cat, anything and then see if it will run.

    Go Here:

    http://www.oldapps.com/old_version_HijackThis.php

    Download version 1.98.2

    after you have scanned with it, click the config button in the lower right, and then you will see a screen that has a save log choice on it. Save the log and then post it in this thread.
