    When I open any website at all, there's popups opening and immediately disappearing again. When I clicked on one, it only showed me a blank page with "~close~" as a title. Sometimes these things give me all sorts of other popups, appearantly sent to me by offeroptimizer.
    I've already tried Ad-Aware, Spybot and CWSShredder a thousand times, but they just won't disappear...
    Here's my HijackThis log following, I would be immensly greatful if you can do anything to help me out!

    Hi Hangy,

    Before you start please move hijackthis.exe to a folder of it´s own. The program creates backups in the folder it is in. These will now end up on your desktop.

    Check the following items in HijackThis.
    Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {000020DD-C72E-4113-AF77-DD56626C6C42} - C:\WINDOWS\twaintec.dll

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {83DE62E0-5805-11D8-9B25-00E04C60FAF2} - C:\WINDOWS\2_0_1browserhelper2.dll

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UpdReg] C:\WINDOWS\UpdReg.EXE

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [hxbsifgiv] C:\WINDOWS\System32\qbjkrq.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [alchem] C:\WINDOWS\alchem.exe

    O16 - DPF: {1D4DB7D2-6EC9-47A3-BD87-1E41684E07BB} - http://imgfarm.com/images/nocache/funwebpr...etup1.0.0.6.cab

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\qbjkrq.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\alchem.exe

    When you are done, run HijackThis again and post the new log, so we can see if it all worked out as planned.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Thank you sooooo much!! I've been surfing around a bit after doing what you've told me to and still no popups or whatsoever... You can't imagine how relieved I am to finally get rid of these annoying things!
    Underneath is my current HijackThis log as you asked, but I sure hope there are no more problems with it anymore now...
