Recently I got blast by a lot of adwares since i fogot to turn on zone alarm, adwatch and the pop up blocker. By using spybot, ad-aware, the antivirus, I think I was able to remove everything from my computer.

But I have one problem left, and will appreciate some help. When I have adwatch running, everytime I open a new window (my computer, explorer, etc.) I get an adwatch notification showing the following:

An attempt to alter a protected object has been detected.
Root:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key:Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Value:bxxs5
Data:
New Data:RunDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\bxxs5.dll,DllRun

Everytime, I have blocked it because I don't have idea of what it is and I wasn't getting this message before all the adwares got into my PC.
Please let me know if you have any advise, wether this doesn't cause a problem or how can I solve it.
Thanks!

Hi maxvenom22

Welcome to TSG! :)

Please do this:

First create a permanent folder somewhere like in My Documents and name it Hijack This.

Now Click here to download Hijack This. Download and save the file to the Hijack This folder you just created.

Click on Hijackthis.exe to launch the program.

Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

The log should open in notepad. Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required. Someone here will be glad to advise you on what to fix.
