I have some F'ing Adware I cannot find it!

Ok I downloaded some stupid program I just uninstalled 15 minutes later, and now I get these damn pop-ups. I checked to see what programs are running (ALT + Ctrl + DEL) and didnt see anything illregular. I looked thru my programs that load up during startup (by typing msconfig and clicking the startup tab).

I see this thing called memoregs.exe that I have no idea what it goes to. I can explain all the other programs that load up. I uncheck the mark but it adds a new one each time I restart.

I also tried Lavasofts Ad-aware and does nothing. I also have tweaknow registry cleaner and it didnt change a thing.

What should I do?

try a full blown virus suite. I am using NOD32. STAY away from norton, it is HEAVY, it will bog your system, there are much better programs out there for the money. As for your program issue, just tried to google it with no luck. Do a system search for the said program file. It should lead you to a directory. Sometimes it is necessary to delete registry keys, though this gets quite tricky. Start by searching for the file, follow its directory, if it is in an unknown folder or directory, and isn't system related, just delete that bitch

Someone doesn't know how to set Norton up....

I promise you, I can install norton on your system, and there will be NO noticable difference in performance.

lol. this has been confirmed by every IT person I know. Plus for me there are too many "built in features" to each their own.

I absolutly HATE Norton. I will never use it, even i f it was free. I guess I will try and find a lite version of Trend PC-cillin. Is there a cheap place online that I can buy it at?

Ok after doing some quick searching I found 2 different places to buy PC-Cillin.

www.computersworth.com $22.00 Only thing is though how can you trust a local company that can't spell PC-cillin right. PC-cillan???

www.newegg.com $39.99 Bought plenty of stuff from here and I can buy it right now and download it.

I like fsecure cuz it doesn't monitor every fucking thing you do and ask for permissions for everything you do.

Since I play games online I am worried about it being CPU heavy when I am playing games. Which one is the least heavy on CPUs?

Well I bought bitDefender 10, and it finally removed the ad-ware crap. I tried spybot S&D, Ad-ware SE, Avast Free, Registry cleaner, and tweaknow registry cleaner. None of those worked!
I paid 26.99 for two years, and for two users. Does two users mean two seperate computers?
