    Below is a report that came from HijackThis. I have random pop-ups on my computer. They only occur when Internet Explorer is up and running. If I search for something, the pop-ups usually pertain to the keyword. Help me out!!!

    Hi SEVENDUSTWEB,

    Welcome to Wilder's!!!!!

    You posted the Startup List portion from HJT. Go here HERE and follow the instructions. Run Ad-Aware and SpyBot if you have not already done so. Then follow the instruction for posting a HJT log.

    Regards,
    Kent
