    Hello all, nice place you've got here.

    I have been having a problem with my popups (or popunders, not sure of the term). They have been getting redirected to a page which displays links to mortgage/porn sites.

    I use IE and Google toolbar to help block popups. But the Google Toolbar doesn't really block most of them. Rather, I have to hold "ctrl" and let the thing popup (the page clicks and freezes otherwise). When it does popup it shows as that mortgage/porn site I mentioned above. I am using the latest version of Google Toolbar. I run adaware and spybot all the time. Tonight I ran hijackthis and got this log printout:

    Seems that I was able to answer my own question by looking around this site for a bit. I d/l and ran CW Shredder and all is good (for now :) )
