    Why does this pop up every 10 seconds? HELP!!


    I am in college and what was my school's home page (look alike) kept poping up on my desktop every few seconds. It was a false page. It has an "x" in the corner but no way to move it, make it larger or smaller. I tried loging into it once and then it looked like an administrative page as if I worked for the school as if I were on a school computer.

    For reference. I go online to a real web page to log on to get to my school and canvas.

    After trying to get rid of it a while.... it now continues to pop up every few seconds but says site unreachable. There is nothing in my programs or add ons that I can delete regarding this.

    Can anyone help?

    :)

    Bitsadmin pops up for just a second and vanishes.

    Do you have the results of SuperAntiSpyware and JRT?
    Have you performed the steps in post #5? Please turn off Fast Startup before doing that.

    We need to make sure the system is completely clean before we can move on to other methods.
