Ok, I am trying to assist my grandfather with a computer issue he recently encountered. About two weeks about an new icon appeared on his desk top "Free xxx" in addition to the icon appearing whenever of the PC is on he receives pop-up stating something along the lines of trying to initialize plug-in. If the PC is not connect to the Internet it fails, if it is connected, after a few minutes the pop-up disappears. He says that he hasn't installed anything but the issue seams to be tied to a web viewer application. There is a folder on on the c: drive. However, if you try to delete it you receive a pop-up saying that the application needs to be uninstalled, but there is no option in the add/remove programs list. I have included the hijack log from his PC.

Hi Babbelfish, Welcome to TSG!!

Run HJT again and put a check in the following:

O16 - DPF: {1D4DB7D2-6EC9-47A3-BD87-1E41684E07BB} - http://imgfarm.com/images/nocache/f...etup1.0.0.8.cab
O16 - DPF: {11111111-1111-1111-1111-111111111157} - ms-its:mhtml:file://c:\nosuch.mht!http://iframedollars.biz/dl/adv480/x.chm::/load.exe

Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".


Download AdAware SE Personal: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/

Install the program and launch it.

On the bottom right-hand corner of the main window click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

In the main window: Click Start and under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

Deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

To start the scan, click the Next button.

When the 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 and then click Next)

Reboot and post another log.

DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their

Add rmove programs remove MyWebSearch

Get the latest version of HJT

Close all browser windows, Open cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" and let
it run.

Then restart your computer and post a new log
