Hi all.

I've just clean my machine in the registry editor to get rid of poker popup and a few others.

I've used Adaware to remove the rest.  But i can not get rid of ad.firstadsolutions from popping up.

Any help please.  I'm pulling my hair out now after 4 hours of looking.

Many thanks

    Please download Hijackthis from and run it.

    Copy-and-paste the resulting log back to that same web site (not here)
    Then click on "analyze" and on the next page click on "Save Analysis" at the bottom.
    Finally, post the link to the saved analyzed page here.

    I agree with r-k

    This one is another direct download of HijackThis.exe
    Open Hijackthis, click "Do a system scan and save a logfile" don't fix anything yet,
    A notepad will open, copy the entire notepad contents and paste at;
    and click "Analyse", click "Save".  
    Post the link to the saved list here.
