    Hello raymondsegrest =)

    Well this website doesn't look like those malwares and junk websites :-?
    but anywyzzzz have u already tried running the Basic removal tools to make sure that the come as clean ??
    and plzz have a carefull look in the Control panel Add Remove Programs to check that there is not any suspisious program ins installed !!

    For further troubleshooting, use hijackhtis, it can tell u about the running and starting programs, as wel as the BHOs attached to IE... so Download HijackThis v1.98.2 from here, run it and Save the LOG file:

    Then Post that log at this site >>
    and it will automatically analyse it for u,,, Fix the entries which it labels as Nasty :)
    To Fix, check the lines in Hijackthis scan and click on Fix Checked !!

    HJT Log Tutoriol >>

    CAUTION: Before fixing the entries in hijackthis, make sure that they are really Nasty and can be deleted, better u first research for it on Google and then when u will confirm that they shud be deleted, Fix them. And whenever u run Hijackthis, run it from a New folder on ur desktop, so that in case of any problem, u can take advantages of its created backups of fixed items. And in case if u still face problems in dealing with it, just analyse ur log at the above site, and then scroll down where u will see a Save Analyse button, hit it and it will save ur Log Analysation, then copy the link of that page and paste it here, and we will check it for u :)

    Problem was two executables named svrrun. exe and svrrunu. exe there was also a notepad file associated with them that really pointed the finger as these two being the main culprit. Deleted both in safe mode and pop ups ceased. There is a file that hijackthis pointed out that Iam not sure about. Name is lic98rmt.exe if you know what this is please give me a heads up on it.

    Thanks Ray

    This file is located at C:\ProgramFiles/CA/SharedComponents/CA_LIC
    Appears to be some type of License registration problem related to this Compaq machine.
    POP UP Problem is fixed. Thanks

    yeah then this is a valid one, as its running from its original location and Its some kind of Database Installer from Computer Associates I think :)
