I know little about computers but I'll try and explain. I kept hearing these "advertisements" airing through my speakers with no video. I also had weird messages popping up on my screen. I followed the advice of some of the other post and downloaded Ad-Aware & Spybot. Tha seemed to do the trick.

But, everytime I restart my computer, the same website keeps popping up. It is one I have never visited or heard of.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks for the reply. I'll look into malwarebytes.

The was not hidden anywhere under "start up". The last time I restarted my computer, it did not pop-up, so I'm pretty confused at this point.

I "unchecked" some of the programs that automatically startup to try and speed up my computer. So maybe that did it. It takes about 1-2 minutes for my IE to completely log on with a 56 K cable modem. I'll try anything to speed that thing up!

If you can think of anywhere else I can look for that shop.trendmicro...just let me know.

Thanks - PirateVA
