Hey all, I'm hoping someone would be able to give me a hand. I'm not sure if it is a virus i have or some serious adware but my computer is really playing up and i couldn't post in the adaware section. I have Windows Xp home and of late have been getting windows messenger popups saying stuff about a website entitled www .upgradenow.org. My computer starts fine and only stats playing up once i connect to the interent (im on dial up). After about ten minutes i get the pop up and then my computer and internet freezes, im not able to do anything and cntrl alt delete wont even bring up the task manager, all i can do is turn it off at the power. I had updated spybot, adaware and my anti virus AVG7 beforehand and they have had no luck finding anything. My hijack this log looks normal to me. Other than that im not able to connect to the net long enough to use an online virus checker like trendmicro and am curently on a friends mac. Im hoping someone could please help me or point me in the right direction. Kind reagrds.
