Impossible popup! HELP!

Q: Impossible popup! HELP!

For weeks now, I've been getting these Russian popups on several different websites that I frequent. I don't know how to get rid of them! I've run a plethora of malware programs and anti-virus programs and they still come up! I've left pictures below of what they look like, can anyone help me get rid of them?!
I haven't installed any toolbars or free programs recently.
No one but my son has been on my computer and he only checked my mail for me while I was in hospital.
I've tried opening Firefox in safe mode but it still happens (also happens in IE).
I've checked Firefox Add Ons and there's nothing fishy there.
Any idea how to make them go away?
This is what it looks normally (with Adblock Plus on)
This is what it looks like in safe mode

Thank you for your help!

Preferred Solution: Impossible popup! HELP!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My computer is infected with some sort of malware and I still have not found a way to get rid of it. Isaw a topic posted over in the "Am I infected? What do I do?" thead and got some suggestions which bought me here. The link to that thread is here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/178465/mtn5goolews-and-popupadvnet-malware/.The first symptoms I noticed were unprompted popup adds from the sites mtn5.goole.ws and popup.adv.net. I have also noticed that offensive adds are being inserted in the add bars on some reputable, mainstream websites. This sypmtom does not seem to occur on every website and I cannot detect any sort of pattern with it.I have run a variety of different programs and scans including Mcafee, TrojanHunter, a-squareed and the problem persists. The programs have located a variety of different trojans and while they say that they are able to remove them, the syptoms and the trojans seem to not go away. Secondly, I noticed that I cannot go to Microsoft windows update, get mcafee definitions etc. I can find and go to microsoft center to get the download of their latest browser fix, but when I press download, it either redirects me to www.msn.com or page not found error.due to not being able to reach out to teh mainstream sites, I cannot even download the latest virus efinitions (so my McAfee is complaining), cannot go get the latest patches rom microsoft (so I am complaining).I saw in the previous thread that Buckeye_Sam asked to download and run RSIT.exe....

I have scanned with ad-aware, norton anti-virus (which says it is unable to fix virus), spy-bot search & destroy, as well as msn anti-spyware beta. I continue to get a virus notification from Norton when I turn on my computer. I have had this problem about 7-10 days. The first time I got one of the winfixer pop-ups I had just opened an email from someone I have had emails from before.

Hello I get three popups without fail every time windows starts.Please see screenshot - http://g.imagehost.org/0164/MyDesktop.gif1. AVG popup - This shows up whenever the PC starts and periodically after 10-15 minutes of using the PC (no specific trigger noticed). However a full scan shows no infections or warnings.2. Cannot find script file... popup. This popup started showing after AVG detected VirusCleaner.vbe as a threat and moved it to the vault after I gave the go-ahead.3. Project1 Run time error x. You see 5 in the screenshot, the the error number varies randomly.All these started when I put my pendrive in a virus infested PC and then put it in my PC. I was careful to scan and clean it up, but it appears the virus still managed to leak in.

I downloaded VLC media player (apparently not from the right place) and since then I have been getting ads on every web page I go to. It happens in chrome as well as IE. Pop up windows, pop up tabs, pop up banners and those extra double-underlined links which appear randomly in all the text which bring you to more ad sites (with pop up bubbles if you hover over them. They say "ads by bettersurf" down in the corner.) The ads seem to be for all different things, so it's hard to pin down what exactly to call this virus. Some of them include globaltechexpert.com, downloadcamp.com, yoursoftsite.com, fastonlinefinder.com, etc, etc. One that always appears up in the corner of the page says Call For Great Tech Support with a number. Also there seem to be extra ads embedded in the webpages themselves and sometimes the pics that actually should be there are way over-sized and distort the spacing of the pages. I have already run a full scan with Malwarebytes which detected a few things, but deleting them did not help. Please help! It is extremely annoying and things seem to be slower too. I'm running Windows 7 (64 bit).

I've been given a friends computer to have a look at (and in my opinion it is the crappiest install I have ever seen done by a PC company- custom bootloaders, moddified themes, bloatware all over the place).

When the computer starts up, a warning that this copy of windows is not genuine pops up. I suspect this may be the case- but what is confusing is that the popup is for Windows Vista Ultimate.

The copy of XP runs a (modified XP start bar, Vista Icons). I've checked that its not a themed copy of Vista (my computer -> properties, checked control panel and its style networking, dxdiag confirms xp). The version of XP is some 'Xp Ice'.

Why would the windows Vista "not genuine popup" in an XP operating system?? And how on earth can I fix it?

Cheers guys

A:windows not genuine popup - xp but popup is for vista :S

install a valid, genuine copy of XP.
XP ICE is a pirated copy someone has cobbled together using pieces of Vista, hence the Vista error.

Recently cleaned my parents computer of the Adware Portal Scan trojan. Now, friend is having similar problems (computer trying to dial up automatically and sudden bombardment of popups despite having two popup stoppers). However, I'm not seeing the slmss or mwsvm files. He can't even install a new anti-virus program because his cd drive has been disabled. Below is the hijack this log from his computer. I know there's a lot of junk; I've tried to warn him about his internet traffic habits. Right now, though, our main concern is regaining access to his cd drive and his internet. The repeated auto dialing is shutting down all other activities. Any help someone can give would be greatly appreciated!

A:snap, crackle POPUP after POPUP!!!

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer. After we are finished with your log file and verified that it's clean, you may turn it back on and create a new restore point.

Hi, I'm visiting my dad and Earthlink Popup Blocker pop-up are popping up relentlessly even though he gave up trying to get Earthlink working a long time ago.

I tried looking for it in Add/Uninstall and in Program Files folder but I can't find it anywhere. I searched on the internet for similar problems, which I found plenty of, but no fixes!

Is there a fix for this? Thanks much for any help.

I have a relatively new Dell XPS 410 running Windows XP Media Center Edition. I am extremely exasperated over a problem that seems unfixable. Every time I start the computer, I get a pop-up appearing right before the user log on screen. It says "Fixed" and will not let me exit out, so I can only perss "OK" to bypass it. The log on screen is normal and any user can be selected to log on. But, when selcted to log on, it loads personal settings, flashes the desktop and immediately logs off and saves the settings. I can not get to the desktop, so I can not scan for viruses or delete files. I really don't want to hear the computer is forever inoperable. Any advice would be appreciated!

Is there any way to stop Virtu Monde popups? Somehow, I have become infected. Nothing seems to stop this creature. I have NIS installed. It doesn't help. I have Windows Defender installed. It doesn't help. My settings are set to block all popups. It doesn't help. Spyware Doctor will remove Virtu Monde a hundred times a day, but it always keeps comming back. I don't want to remove Virtu Monde a hundred times a day. I want to stop it from placing popups on my computer in the first place. Is this possible. If so, how do I do it?

I have installed on my computer a new PC only version of Windows 8. I've not purchased a new PC for about 8 years so its impossible it came with the computer, I built the computer myself.

I remember I brought an upgrade copy of Win8 in error, I got it from PC world. I still have those disk but now I also have this new PC version. I remember going back to PC to tell them I brought it in error I also remember calling the MS helpline.

Can anyone make sense of this? How did this copy come to be working on this computer?

I'm currently wanting to do a clean install but I can't because I can't workout what happened in the past



A:How is this even impossible?

Sounds like you may have an OEM System Builder versions of Windows 8. It is intended to be installed by someone or a company building a new computer that is to be resold. That particular version includes a personal use license which allows anyone to buy an OEM System Builder copy of the software and install it on a (new or old) PC that is intended for personal use. It should have come with an installation key.

Here is some more information on the ZDnet web site.

I have a folder in my external terabyte that appeared some time ago. I can not delete it with any software. I tried to delete with DOS and it says all the same. The problem is that it will not let me downgrade it to a write-able format. It seems to be locked in READ ONLY status. I have attempted to take ownership of the drive and the files, but I can not get rid of it. When I first noticed it, it was random letters. When I tried to delete the file it turned into many many "Z's". When I ran the DOS delete protocol it changed into 6 "Z's"; with in that folder is a empty folder called "Update". Since then I have not been able to do anything about it. I don't know what to do. I even downloaded a program called Delete on Boot, and still no success. I have been coming here for about a year when I caught the Rogue Internet Security 2010. It was since then, 12/30/09 the day that i reformatted to yield to the virus's victory that the file first appeared in the external hard drive. I am wits end and I know someone out there can help me. Please tell me what to do. I was told that it was very complex and destructive hack file. Am I infected again?

Hey guys it's me again with my annoying and those that seem to be impossible-to-fix-problems.

Well 3 months ago i bought an AMD 5600+ Dual Core and i had lots of problems since then, believing it was defective, i wrote to AMD support and requested an RMA. My replacement arrived today. It fixed LOTS of random crashes and my computer was able to boot up properly with both rams placed on in dual channel. I went to play on Soulstorm, it crashed, sometimes half way through a game or sometimes about 5 minutes into the game. I went on another game which is Company of Heroes, it crashed too.

The only reason i tested these 2 games was because they crashed most of the times when i had the defective processor.I thought it was the RAM but i thought it wouldn't make any sense because while waiting for my replacement to arrive, i put in my old AMD Athlon 3500+ and it worked fine with EVERY SINGLE games so it couldn't be the RAM and it can't be the replacement either. Not knowing what else to do, i took one stick of ram out, and guess what? It worked like a charm ! I really have no idea what's going on inside but if anyone had been through this or anyone who knows how to fix please help and....ermm if it works you'll be able to rest assured that a person on earth is grateful and just wants to kill you with hugs XD

Hi! I'm new here -- noticed that a few people had the same problem I'm having with IE Pop-Ups, so I thought I'd look for some help. Spyware scans and pop-up stoppers couldn't cut it and my virus scanner finds nothing wrong.

Though I can only check back here every now and then, and not on the weekends (I apologize in advanced for slow replies), I was hoping that someone might have some ideas on where to go to fix this!

Lately my computer has been running very oddly. Sometimes my explorer.exe will use up 100% and my computer is VERY sluggish.. I have also recently been getting annoying messages such as SysProtect downloads to help fix your computer, You maybe be affected by Blackworm Virus, and a nwe one, Something about the Beagle virus .. Pops up in the same way the Blackworm Virus one does. Also when i exit the SysProtect popup it will direct me to a page to install it. I then close that and get another popup to install it cuz it is (recommended) and i close that and it directs me again to some webpage. Once those are done i can then exit it free of popups for awhile. I also cant run my adaware anymore cuz it says it runs into an error in the Windows Registry causing my computer to go to a blue screen with error.

I am still having wierd problems with my computer. It all started, when I installed Roxio Media creator 7 ( and than un-installed it cause it gave me problems.)

After re-installing the video driver, it is better, but still abnormally sluggish, It is a nice card, a ATI Radeon 9000 w/ 128 MB or RAM. There was a second monitor, but I removed it for troubleshooting. The PC has plenty of HD space, 1 GB of 333 RAM, and a 2.4 GHX CPU. It is running XP Pro. The motherboard is an Amptron 94-935ALU w/ a SIS651/962L chipset. I am a certified tech and have optimized it quite well. (No virus, spyware, de-fragged, etc.)
When I open my first webpage after sign on or switching screen names, it takes like 7 minutes to load. It starts with "downloading from site", than it goes back to "starting downloading from site", and it takes forever. It usually opens pages normally after that, but not always. Same thing happens even afterwards, if I start IE. And when I load WinMX, it starts scanning for shared files(1000's) and gets stuck in the place. It takes like 5 minutes to load.

Here is a quote from the spybot forums on this subject

The problem with the DSO Exploit is a little bug. We have already been able to locate and fix it, but unfortunately it was not included with the last update. It will hopefully be with the next one.
The DSO Exploit is a security gap in IE. Microsoft did already repair this, so if you have all Windows updates and patches installed, it is not dangerous for your system.
I hope that explains the situation.

If you want to stop it appearing in Spybot do this Click on Mode/advanced/settings/ignore products then tick it in the list that appears and it wont show anymore

Hey guys,
I've got a really weird issue and and to be honest am running out of ideas. I was infected with the claro malware this past week which was easy enough to clear up and is completely gone. I noticed this past day that Im pulling a wrong network configuration:
Host IP - (not actual) on my laptop
DHCP server -
Default Gateway -
My DNS servers are correct, my usual scope is 192.168.0.x and gateway of
I can access the internet like usual without issue but can't rdp to any LAN pc's (obviously because of the subnet)
I did a netsh int ip reset command without any success and am kind of at a loss of what to do.
The claro maleware may have nothing to do with it but since it has to do with network settings I figured it was definitely a possibility but it is definitely 100% gone, all of my network settings should be reset to default, I definitely do not have any rogue DHCP servers on my network even though with the default gateway being wrong and still having access to the internet I don't see how that could be it anyway. If any one has any ideas I would be extremely grateful.

Thank You

I have a folder/file deleting problem..
On an XP/sp2 NTFS system.

This problem occurs when I try to delete a folder.

If i try deleting the folder that contains the problem folder i get this..
cannot delete Contains Profanity Fake-NAME : cannot find specified file.

How this file happend to get on my cpu...
I just bought a new HD and I was copying all of my songs from my iPod. I was using a nifty little tool to back up (and organize) a couple thousand mp3s on my new HD. The transfer process was halted when windows encountered an invalid file name error. I think the file contained a ":".

I have tried...
safe mode method.
cmd-manual deleting method.
MoveOnBoot method.
I have even done all of those methods with the HD booted as a slave.


any suggestions plz reply.

A:Ive Tried. Impossible to Delete!

Here is a simple procedure

Sometimes you want to delete a file but when you do so an error message pops and tells you it cannot be done. Do successfully delete such a file do the following:

Open a Command Prompt window and leave it open.

Close all open programs.

You now need to close EXPLORER.EXE. The proper way to shutdown Explorer is to raise the "Shut Down Windows" dialog (select "Shut Down..." from the start menu), hold down CTRL+SHIFT+ALT and press the CANCEL button. Explorer will exit cleanly.

Note: The <CTRL+SHIFT+ALT> at the 'Shut Down Windows' dialog method of closing Explorer is built into Explorer. (It was specifically designed so that developers writing Shell Extensions could get Explorer to release their Shell Extension DLLs while debugging them).

Go back to the Command Prompt window and change to the directory where the undeletable file is located in. At the command prompt type DEL <filename> where <filename> is the file you wish to delete.

Go back to Task Manager, click File, New Task and enter EXPLORER.EXE to restart the GUI shell.

Close Task Manager.

This is probably not the right place to ask, but does anyone know of a simple way of saving to a file in My Documents (for later burning) a piece of music that's playing on my computer from a CD in the drive or something downloaded from the net?

Ideally I'm looking to have a software icon in my taskbar which I can click to start recording something I'm listening to on my computer.

I would really appreciate any help with this.

A:The Impossible Dream? Is It?

There are applications that can do this. One that I know of is Virtual Audio Cable. I've used it and it works well, but it cost's $30.A free alternative may be the LineIn Plugin for WinAmp, though I've never tried it.Please note that using such applications for copyright infringement is a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (in the USA) and/or equivalent national laws outside the USA.

Hello people, I came to this forum in rage. This is so weird i can't help but scratch my head and watch in awe. Here's the deal:

Like most people here i have some sort of an internet black-out problem. My event log is full of error's considering DHCP unavailability and other connection problems. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. I reinstalled windows 7 Ultimate x64 two times, formated the disks 3 times each installation JUST in case, and when i start surfing on an absolutely CLEAN install the connection error pops up. Event Viewer says that the computer tries to connect to a dns server but apparently is timed out. I started safe mode with networking, and there was no problem. How the hell is this possible? Safe Mode with Net is no probs, clean instal,even with no drivers gives cutts me off the net! The other weird thing is that when this happens, i can't acces the Network and Sharing center,or anything that lists my adaptor! I can't even shut down the computer cuz it freezes during the shutdown process. From my research it appears that it's still hailing in hope to recieve an IP from the DHCP server. So i tried many method's i found in similar posts around the forums.Here's the list of things i did:

After seeing that safe mode runs internet with no problem (or maybe it didn't, i ran in safe mode for about 30-40 minutes,so i'm not 100% positive),while the clean install doesn't, i though it was because of the drivers.Updated them with the newest ones.There was no pro... Read more

Hello, I have an application that needs port 1176 open for others to connect to me (I'm pretty sure thats how it works)

I have a D-link DI-524 and have followed the portforward website perfectly but, still no luck.
Nobody can connect to my server, my server isn't even detecting other people trying to connect to it.

I used www.canyouseeme.org and I get
Error: I could not see your service on *ip adress* on port (1176)
Reason: Connection refused

This is happened to me many times for as long as I can remember, only some times it will actually let me port forward certain things. Can anyone share some information to get me on the right track and possibly fix this problem?


A:Portforwarding Impossible

Do you have any firewall installed on your server? (I presumed you do) Try to open that port in your firewall.
