    For just under a week I have been noticing a few wierd things going on on my pc.

    -adverts (audio only) for things like detergant and moisturiser playing every 5 mins or so. They only happen when im connected to the internet and noticibly stop and start, probably buffering or something.

    -pop ups on internet explorer (which isnt my default browser)

    -noises that sound like when you click a link

    -random minimizing when I play games

    Welcome to MajorGeeks!

    Please download MBRCheck to your desktop
    • Double click MBRCheck.exe to run (vista and Win 7 right click and select Run as Administrator)
    • It will show a Black screen with some information that will contain either the below line if no problem is found:
      • Done! Press ENTER to exit...
    • Or you will see more information like below if a problem is found:
      • Found non-standard or infected MBR.
      • Enter 'Y' and hit ENTER for more options, or 'N' to exit:
    • Either way, just choose to exit the program at this point since we want to see only the scan results to begin with.
    • MBRCheck will create a log named similar to MBRCheck_07.16.10_00.32.33.txt which is random based on date and time.
    • Attach this log to your next message. (See: HOW TO: Attach Items To Your Post )

    Now run MGtools per the below instructions and attach the requested MGlogs.zip file
