    hey,

    i'm having problems with the ''only the best'' pop ups, and my homepage gets changed to about:blank. i also had something about psguard or something, and i'm getting windows style warnings asking if i want to find out how to secure my computer, only taking me to a website. i have the shopping assistant that doesn't want to be removed, as well as search extender. it also sometimes doesn't let me access adkiller sites, instead sending me to usually an adultfriendfinder.com advert.

    please please please someone help. my computer was working so nicely til this, now it's ruined.

    cheers, Rob

    Hi Shafey, Welcome to the Forum! :)


    You've definately got a problem with those "Only The Best" pop-ups.
    If the two link's below detail your issue (swap x's with http) ....

    .... but you lack the technical know-how to deal with it youself,
    I'd suggest choosing a site from the following link to post your HJT log for analysis ....

    xxxx://asap.maddoktor2.com/

    Just be sure to read each site's guide-lines before posting.
    Best of luck! ;)
