A while back I reformatted my entire hard drive, but forgot to load my firewall on my computer. So I was only using windows firewall, guess that was my first mistake. My girlfriend went to some site to look up lyrics to a song and all hell broke lose. Something changed my home page, I had strange icons on my task bar, my computer would take FOREVER to start up. It seems everything has been removed, and whatever programs were put into the C drive, except one thing. When browsing webpages Ill get a random pop up window every 10-15 minutes with some advertisement. It's not coming from web sites I'm looking at either. I know HTF, discover, and wachovia do not have advertisement pop ups. Any ideas? I'm thinking of just reformatting again.
