I am being flooded with sex adware and popups.  In Internet Options I click on Settings and View Files and delete them frequently.  How can I permanently get rid of the following examples:

Cookies:  administrator@ sextracker, counter9.sextracker, sexlist.
Https:,, teenygirlsex, teensexmedia, teensexbaby.

Also getting popups related to the above such as

Also some which I find in the View Files which may be detrimental, but maybe not, such as: and, data.coremetrics,, and

I am sure getting tired of these frequent and pornographic interruptions.

Where in the registers can I find these and what the devil are their names and identification?

    I would auggest getting and installing Spybot from:

    Be sure to "update" it after running it for the first time, then use it scan your disk and remove anything bad it finds.

    If that doesn't fix it, boot into safe mode and run it again.

    If that doesn't fix it, get Adaware (free version) from:

    and do the same thing.

    If that doesn't fix, please write back here and I'm sure people will have other suggestions.

    Good luck.

    Before you use any spyware remover, if your running Xp or winME, turn off system restore, then use the anti-spyware programs to remove the pest's. This also holds true for viri, before removing viri, turn off system restore.

    After cleaning system from spyware seeds found in your PC you'd be better to fortify your system with following all free tools you can find on Internet :
         Good firewall ( your choice here )
         Intrusion detection monitor  ( zero-day intrusion detector  )
         Good internet junk cleaners:  CCleaner :
                                                    BeClean :
                                                    MRU Blaster
         Reliable HOSTS file  ( versions for different OS-es available):
         Enhanced Internet Explorer Trusted/Nontrusted Zones sites lists:
              Camtech SpySites  ( approx. 8000 WEB sites blacklist  )
              Spyware Blaster ____________________________________________________________________________________

    Download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer.  Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there.  Double click on the program to run it.

    1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
    2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.

    Now go to and upload your log file there.  You may go ahead and fix those in HijackThis that are mentioned to be bad in that site.  If you fix the entry and it has a file/program associated with it, make sure to delete that also.

    If you need help with this, save that log file in their site.  Then give us a link to that saved log.

    I am running the two hijack programs you suggested.

    In fact, I sent them some $ via PayPal.

    It will take me a few day so be sure that this nonsense has disappeared.

    At that time, I'll let you know and distributed points accordingly.

    Who did you send money to?  There should be no fees for the service.

    Also it is certainly worth changing your browser to reduce the amount of spyware you get.

    Have a look at Mozilla Firefox

    or Opera

    These are not 100% guarenteed against spyware however they are a lot less targeted than Microsoft IE.
