pop ups etcs problem

  AllZwell 19:29 21 Jun 2007


Got these popups coming all of a sudden (casino/loans etc etc), not had these before such (on windows Vista Ultimate)

Run Adaware 2007 (free) AVG, Winaso, Regcure, spyware DR to name but a few.

Also, when I install Google toolbar, it doesn't show up now, and on the menu bar, Google is there but "greyed out".

TIA for help

I'v adjusted the popupblcker a while ago
It's like a dialogue box on the desktothat comes too ("Winantivirus pro 2007", "Windriver", etc) as well as the usual full screen popups for casino invite - (or a loan) theyre not choosy!

Winantivirus pro 2007 Is a rogue program to the best of my knowledge ! will research this later.

Look in add and remove programs and remove.

Then run HJT (hijackthis) click here scan and post the log click here and let the experts advise accordingly.

" Winantivirus pro 2007 " is also known as Winfixer.

Now this is quite old now and can be removed successfully,but this may have deep registry entries that reinvent thereselves upon reboot.You need to rid these entries totally.

We could point you in other directions with a manual fix,but this can be become complicated.

Please follow the above advice and run Hijackthis and post the scan log at the MWR.

Thanks All I'm scanning the PC ATM, and will look at the above, plus AVG/Spydoctor etc in """Safe"" mode.

I'm "seem" to have sorted the spy/win antivirus out, but am presented with """"error loading C:\windows\system32\vtsqr.dll" on start up. Is this important?, would like to get rid of it. I've run Regcure, but still get the prompt

You still have pieces left over from Winfixer,you could try running Ccleaner click here but the best advice here is to get checked out before it becomes more messy.
Please refer back to my post
