    All those "cookies" are from spyware companies known to put out self-reinstalling and stealthed programs. They harvest information and they phone home.


    You can start by blocking cookies from those domains. You can also make sure your popup blocker is active and not compromised or you can use a 3rd party popup blocker like the Google toolbar.
    In IE open Tools>Pop UP blocker>PopUp blocker settings
    Check your IE security settings also.

    All of the mentioned malware are known issues contained in the Spybot Search and Destroy database and should be able to be removed using spybot from safe mode.

    Are you running spywareblaster? This program helps prevent lot of these objects from being installed in the first place.

    You can manage your HOSTS file using this tool.. http://hostsman.abelhadigital.com/

    I downloaded hostsman and added the websites, the websites still pop-up but cannot be accessed, is there a way to stop them? It is only those specific pop ups. Even if I am not surfing the web they pop up like clock work.

    Did you use Ccleaner?

    One other thing you may want to do at this point is flush out your system restore points.


    Warning: All restore points will be deleted!
    1. User must be logged on as Administrator
    2. Right click the My Computer icon on the Desktop and click on Properties.
    3. Click on the System Restore tab.
    4. Put a check mark next to 'Turn off System Restore on All Drives'.
    5. Click the 'OK' button.
    6. You will be prompted to restart the computer. Click Yes.

      Note: To Enable System Restore, follow steps one to six and on step four remove the check mark next to 'Turn off System Restore on All Drives'. A new restore point will automatically be created.
    Using Disk Cleanup with the System Restore option, all restore points will be deleted except for the most recent restore point.

    After you have rebooted the system a few times, run your cleaners and do a defrag.

    IMO getting this will help.. Bite the Bullit and get Firefox

    OK, maybe a different approach will work?

    First a couple of questions:

    1. Do the pop-ups happen when you boot into safe mode ?
    2. Have you run Crap Cleaner and your scans in safe mode ?

    You might try this:

    1. Get WinPatrol from BillP Studios
    2. Use the tools to check out cookies, BHOs and the like
    3. Go into the "startup" module and disable everything you don't really absolutely need for your PC to function. This does not remove them, it just stops them from automatically loading on bootup. In particular disable stuff that you have downloaded from anywhere that is not the original author's site.
    4. Reboot into safe mode and run your CrapCleaner and scans.
    5. Reboot into normal mode.

    Do you still get the pop-ups?
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    When in safe mode I don't get the pop-ups and I already used ccleaner in safe mode, I will try out winpatrol and see what happens.

    I am beginning to suspect that you may have downloaded something from a compromised website. Whilst it probably does what it is supposed to, it could well be the source of these pop-ups as well.

    Hey, this is a wild guess, but it seems to fit your experience?

    1. A variety of scanners find nothing, not even in safe mode. I would have at least expected them to find something suspicious, even if they couldn't clean it.

    2. HijackThis! doesn't seem to show anything that I see as an obvious threat (mind you, I do not claim to be an expert )

    3. Whatever it is doesn't start in safe mode.

    So, it must be something non-essential in startup that is causing this?

    My suggestion would be to shut down all stuff that is not absolutely essential and see if this solves the problem. Then just start things manually, one at a time and wait a bit after each item, until you get the problem again. The last item you started will be the culprit.

    Obviously, you should do this offline. I am afraid that it may be quite time consuming.

    If you are running any downloaded "Warez" or "cracks" then those will be your most likely suspects.

    Try to remember what you downloaded immediately before this problem started.

    Incidentally, when you run your scans do you select:

    1. All files
    2. Full system scan
    3. Heuristic scan

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
