Default Popups, popups, and more popups.

Hey all.

Since I had some guests over last week I've noticed my new 3.2GHz computer slowing down to 90MHz speed. I started getting an average 5-10 popups a minute. I had google toolbar popup blocker but it still happened.. The problem was spyware so someone referred me to winguard popup remover (http://www.winguard.org) and it worked really well and took care of all my popups. But, now I also want to remove the spyware on my system.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Ok I just spybot and it took a lot of things off. I also had to run Adaware and Microsofts... it looks like I'm good to go.. Why cant there just be a good one that takes care of everything?

By the way, i would reocmmend winguard popup remover to anyone with popup troubles. I look forward to their new antispy program.

Thanks for everyones help. Mike.

Remove entries at your own risk:

Are you not using an Antivirus or Firewall?


O8 - Extra context menu item: &MSN Search - res://C:\Program Files\MSN Toolbar Suite\TB\02.00.0001.1203\en-us\msntb.dll/search.htm The entry &MSN Search has been identified as nasty.

C:\Program Files\Matrix Y2K\Matrix.exe This is a unknown process.

go there to get a firewall and/or antivirus and stop using IE if you are.... firefox is better with security and spyware and stuff link to opera and firefox is in there somewhere... thank Blitze105 as he took the time to make that list

I'll remove the MSN search... Matrix is my HTML editor though. Thanks for your help. And if you want to help anyone with popups I was recommended winguard popup remover and I would recommend it back.

Thanks for all those who helped. Thx WarezMonster.
