Red face Solved: Annoying music and ads playing in background
I am getting annoying music and ads playing in the background. I have not visited any "rude" sites so am at a loss to know where it comes from - spybot, adaware and AVG tell me my my systems clear ? I am reasonably new to this so a simple step by step would help; thanks. Regards, webby048.

Go here and click the green icon to download and save HijackThis 2.0.2.

Close all open windows first, then install it in its default location: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis.

Run a scan with it - which will take 30 seconds or less.

Save the resulting log in Notepad.

Return here, then copy-and-paste the entire log here.

If you're using the free version and not the paid version of Lavasoft Ad-Aware and Spybot - Search & Destroy, uninstall them and replace them with the free version of

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.44

SUPERAntiSpyware 4.34.0.1000

They do a better job and are more user-friendly and are lighter on system resources.

If you do uninstall them, restart your computer afterwards, then go into the C:\Program Files folder and delete their leftover folders - if they're still there.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Can you advise which peripherals(printer, scanner, iPod, camera, webcam, external hard drive, etc.) you have connected to and use with that computer?

---------------------------------------------------------------

Go into these 2 temp folders:

C:\WINDOWS\Temp

C:\Documents And Settings\(Username)\Local Settings\Temp

then delete everything from inside those temp folders. It's all junk and is a good place for "nasties" to hide.

If a few files resist deletion, leave them alone and delete everything else.

Restart your computer afterwards.

Hi flavallee,
Thanks for that, will do as you suggested with the anti-spy/mal ware - the only periferal that I have attached is a Cannon ip4600 printer - did you spot any problems or unecessary files lurking in the log file?Regards, webby048

After you complete all my instructions in post #4 and have restarted, run a new scan with HijackThis and then post that new log here.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Also, do the following so I can see what's installed in that computer:

Start HijackThis, but don't run a scan.

Click on the "Open The Misc Tools Section" button.

Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.

Click on the "Save List" button.

Save the "uninstall_list.txt" file somewhere. It'll then open in Notepad.

Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire file here.

----------------------------------------------------------------

I'm going off-line for the night, so I'll get back to your thread in the morning.

Hi flavallee,
Thank you for your continuing kind help and patience. I only use my home computer (when I can) over the weekend and this problem has been frustrating. I looked at all the other forums but you are the first to at least have a look at the problem. I downloaded Malawarebytes Anti-Malaware & SuperAntiSpyware as you suggested and they already identified and removed nuisance value cookies - something Adaware and Spybot didn't. I'm signing off too for a few days so there is no mad hurry on this one. The Hyjackthis log and Uninstall lists are attached below.

I downloaded Malawarebytes Anti-Malaware & SuperAntiSpyware as you suggested and they already identified and removed nuisance value cookies - something Adaware and Spybot didn't. I'm signing off too for a few days so there is no mad hurry on this one.
After you installed MBAM and SAS, did you update their definition files before running a scan?

After you completed a scan with MBAM and SAS, did you select and remove everything they found?

When you get back to this computer, post their scan logs here.

The scan log for MBAM is in Logs(tab).

The scan log for SAS is in Preferences - Statistics/Logs.

Is the annoying music and ads still a problem?

Sorry flavallee forgot ! - so far, since I did ran the two scans the annoying music has ceased.

When it was playing it was a mixture of rap music interspaced with a high voiced girl advertising real estate.

I'm glad to hear that the MBAM and SAS scan-and-removal process got rid of your annoying background music.

Run a quick scan with them once or twice a month(after you first update their definition files) and then remove everything they find. Doing this will keep spyware and malware in check.

--------------------------------------------------

Java(TM) 6 Update 17 is slightly outdated. You can download the current version from here. When you install it, it'll overwrite and replace the older version. Decline to install whatever extra crap is offered.

Adobe Reader 9.2 is slightly outdated. Start it to load its main screen, then click Help - Check For Updates - Show Details. Select the 9.3.1 update to install. None of the other extra crap is needed.

After you do the above and have restarted your computer, post a new HijackThis log here. Your computer has a bloated startup load which needs to be trimmed down.

Thank you flavallee, as I mentioned earlier you were the only person to give me a hand - probably too trivial for some....
Not to worry, all appears well now and I'll take your advice with the scans.

Hi flavallee - regarding your last sentence, I didn't miss it - just had to wait till I updated Java and Acrobat.
Scan is below - if I need to remove or delete unecessary files, I'll need driving instructions and where to look. Regards , webby048

Let's get the startup load trimmed down a bit. Follow these instructions carefully and take your time doing it.

After you're done and have restarted your computer, start HijackThis and run a scan, then post that new log here.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG and then click OK - Startup(tab).

Remove the checkmark from the entries that I've highlighted in bold type.

Your new HijackThis log shows this entry in the list of running processes:

C:\DOCUME~1\user\LOCALS~1\Temp\SSUPDATE.EXE

Anytime that something runs from a temp folder, that's suspicious.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Go into these 2 temp folders:

C:\WINDOWS\Temp

C:\Documents And Settings\(Username)\Local Settings\Temp

and delete everything from inside those temp folders.

If a few files resist deletion, leave them alone and delete everything else.

After that's done, restart your computer.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Start HijackThis and run a scan.

Put a checkmark in

O2 - BHO: WormRadar.com IESiteBlocker.NavFilter - {3CA2F312-6F6E-4B53-A66E-4E65E497C8C0} - (no file)

Click "Fix Checked - Yes".

Close HijackThis.

After that's done, restart your computer again.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

After all of the above has been done, post a new HijackThis log here.
