You guys have to help me get rid of these pop ups!!!

I must have got a virus on my work computer that causes advertisement pop ups. It's all different kinds including an advertisement to down load the fix for the pop ups I cant figure out where they hid the files for these pop ups. I've ran the Lavasoft Ad-ware program and it couldn't find it either. Please help!! Thanks!!

Go download. HijackThis and Post your log. Also run spybot, as it finds things adware doesn't. Another good program is Webroot SpySweeper.

Spybot Search & Destroy usually works well for me.

other than the stuff that the others recommended, there isn't much else you can do that I can think of... GL

I got one recently that nothing could get rid of. It ended up being AKSoft or APsoft. I got rid of it by searching for the word coupon in the registry and deleting all sections that had it in there. If you are not familiar with editing the registry, I wouldnt recommend doing it on your own.
