    When i am connected to the internet a random set of windows and browser screens appear. Some offer me poker games, some warn I have no security installed and some report detecting spyware and ofer to resolve this for me.

    I've used hijack this to identify and remove several entries, but they come back. There is an entry in the HJT about a trusted site that I can't remove.

    I've tried removing it through IE as well. It always returns as soon as I close the Trusted sites dialog.

    the entry is; http://*.63.219.181.7

    Here is my hijack this log

    Welcome to TSG.

    1st of all the version of HijackThis is out of date......please re-download it and delete the old one:http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/hijackthis.zip
    http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip , :http://computercops.biz/zx/Merijn/hijackthis.zip
    http://downloads.subratam.org/hijackthis.zip.


    Download AdAware SE from here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/
    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
    Then ........

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

    Then......

    Click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

    Then.........

    Go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

    Then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose"select all" from the drop down menu)


    Now re-boot...

    Then
    Download Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

    After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.
    Activate the "Imunize" function.
    ==========================================================
    Run an online antivirus check from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites....
    http://virusscan.jotti.dhs.org/
    http://www.kaspersky.com/remoteviruschk.html
    http://www.dials.ru/english/www_av/
    http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?
    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
    http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
    http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/

    Re-boot again.

    Then post a new HijackThis log to check what is left. [/b]

    And when this is all clean...
    Consider installing the following:

    SpywareBlaster v 3.0 and SpywareGuard v2.2, to prevent Active-X drive-by installations, as well as provide real-time browser hijacking protection: http://www.wilderssecurity.net/index.html

    IE-SPYAD, a registry file that adds a long list of known "sites" to the Restricted Sites of your Internet Explorer: https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/resource.htm
    You should check regularly for updates on all these programs

    Mozilla FireFox,much safer,faster and lighter browser than IE.
    http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

    . Install 'Spoofstick"
    Spoofstick is a simple browser extension that helps users detect spoofed (fake) websites. This extension is free and installs in Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
