Try fixing this entry with HijackThis:

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [smiakmiuqs] c:\users\ian\appdata\local\smiakmiuqs.exe smiakmiuqs

Then delete the file:


That is all I'm really seeing. This may be Navipromo, in which case just fixing the entry may not work...we'll see. Fix the entry, delete the file, then post a new HJT log and let us know if you're still getting pop-ups. If you are I can guide you through the use of Navilog to see if Navipromo is the problem and fix.

If you experience problems while deleting the file , terminate it using Task manager , as it may be in use .

You might want to remove this one as well for good measure

Yeah, it looks very much like navipromo.
Blacklight does detect navipromo's hidden files also.

If it is, then "Navilog1" by IL-MAFIOSO should take care of it.
