Popups Keep On Coming
Posted on 2004-09-02
Hi Again Experts - Hope you can help with this as I will be on this site again today. I have Win98se system which was hijacked by NewNet and about:blank. I ran hijackthis and cleaned up those issues. I ran spybot, noadware, adaware, and cwshredder. All programs report that the system is clean. But when I restart, without even opening a browser, the popups start coming. I tried disconnectiong the network/internet and the system keeps asking me if I want to work offline or retry the connection. I assume that some form of evil is trying to open a browser. Any ideas?
