Please download HijackThis click here and post a log. Guidance click here

You will need to post it in sections because of the 800 word limit on this site. Also, please double-space it by adding a blank line every other line.

Don't try to fix things until advised what needs to be done.

OK 3 things to try.

1. On Internet explorer go to Tools, Internet Options, Languages and delete any language listed in the window.

2. Install the Google Toolbar.

3. Go to the Microsoft site, root around and download the Microsoft Antispyware Beta 1 programme. I havn't had a popup since I started using it.

If all that fails Try HijackThis, but it can be a bit fiddly as it's not automatic.
