Hi -
I have my friends Windows 98 computer that I have been cleaning up. It was full of spyware. I installed and ran Spysweeper 3.0, Spybot 1.3, Adaware and deleted everything. I installed Norton Internet Security and ran a scan of the system. Deleted everything from MSCONFIG, deleted Temp Internet files and STILL when I reboot and open Internet Explorer, several popups from 680180.net open up. I've seen this problem on the site before but others have different HijackThis logs and I don't want to delete anything I may need. Here is the log:

Oh..  OK, the host file acts like a DNS server for name resolution..  before your system contacts an external DNS server, it first looks at your host file to see if the IP address and Friendly Name is there, then if it is, it directs the webpage to that address.  Many times, this host file is used for hijacking your browser's URL.  

In W98 I believe the host file is located in the System Folder (c:\windows\hosts )  You need to open it with Notepad and examine the contents.  The native default host file will only have one entry, that being:  <127.0.0.1  localhost>  If there is more than that entry there, then delete everything else (except the comments above it that are remarked out with a # sign)  Once that is done, you must save it WITHOUT an extension.  Meaning that within notepad, use save as, and make sure you do not select txt, but select All Files in the drop down menu.

Here is a link that may help you understand it more:

I compared the HijackThis log to the website you suggested and fixed some entries. I found the hosts file and there was only 127.0.0.1 in the file. The problem has gone away. Thanks for your help.
