    Hi there! I am a new fan of Spywaregaurd and Spywareblaster, I have them on my personal computer. I have just installed Norton 2003 and both Spywareblaster and Spywaregaurd on my son's computer. He is frequently on the web, downloading different things. We have had a terrible time with pop-ups! I have installed all 3 of the above AND run all the programs including updates before I scanned, twice. Now, the pop-ups are worse than ever it seems!! WHAT is going on? Please help...I want to use this product but have to admit this is very distressing at this point!

    Help!!

    Here is my hijack log...

    So far so good.

    I ran both Ad-aware and Spybot. We have had many problems with repeated pop-ups, sometimes 7,8 and minute or more, even when we are not directly on the internet (cable connection). We have also had freezes, mainly during PC games like Call of duty, etc.

    I am also having another problem, I don't know if it is related or not. I get an error message during start up, stating," The ATI Control Panel failed to initialize because no ATI driver is installed, or ATI driver is not working properly. The ATI Control Panel will now exit. " I have searched for this driver or "ATI" on my PC, and went to the ATI site to download a driver, but cannot tell which one I might need. I have win98. I think it is related to my graphics or video card. I have the NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440-8X installed for my video card. Any ideaso_O

    Thank you so much for your help, I really appreciate it!
