Looks like I'll have to dig deeper. What exactly is this ad program called you are running? It should help me to disable it if I can do a direct search.

I have that too. I didn't notice it until you mentioned it. I will keep watching the thread to see if someone comes up with a fix.

It seems the fix is getting rid of the ad malware our PCs picked up. It's not on my laptop, just my tower, so Frank was right, it's on our end. DC isn't recognizing we are logged in because of that malware.

try running malware bytes. It's a free download and a good place to start.

Been there done that. It was one of three things I ran, including adaware and avg.
That's why I was hoping you could disclose the type of ad it's called, so it would be easier for me to do a direct search on disabling it or finding the bug that is allowing it to run.

I use IE, Hoot.
If you want to know why do a search on the past threads I've posted in where there's been a problem. It gets redundant for us IE users to have to explain ourselves whenever there's a glitch with this forum ;^)

Gotcha!
It might be related to a browser add on. Can't hurt to take a look.

You rock, Hoot!
You should be an admin. You are definitely on top of your game.

I was not able to download AdBlock Plus for some reason.

The scan is finished and found 78 infected files and it now fixing them. I hope. If this does not fix my ad problem I will look into the link posted by Hoot for removing Text Enhanced Malware. This is a pain, especially since I have no idea what I'm doing. LOL

It says everything is fixed, and there are 12 items in quarrantine, most of them adware and 1 trojan. What should I do with them? It says I can delete them. Will that mean they are no longer on my pc?
