I have 3 pop-ups wanting to access the net and I can't get them out of my pc. They are "aAval.exe"-"uMsq.exe"-"PGYN.exe". Norton's will not touch them. But I am fed up of them showing up all the time. My Thanks to any help

those random file names could be a number of undesirables,(peper springs to mind) a hijackthis log would help to identify and clean them.

Woodchip, many thanks my friend, problem sorted, I am on a learning curve, this is something I will remember for the future. Also to VoG, Norton's has now been able to wipe them out. Again my thanks to both of you

Sorry!! Muppetmark I'd wiped them before I saw your reply
