    Hello,
    I know this has been posted before so I read the other posts and did what was suggested. So far I have downloaded and run HijackThis. Here is the log. I am not very computer literate so I may be slow in understand what to do. But I now have over 30 missing short cut pop-ups on my machine, and I want to get rid of them. In reading the file, I see that many of the files that have been popping up as missing short cuts are listed.
    PLEASE help! Thanks

    Hi Bobcativ

    Welcome to TSG! :)

    You have been infected by the Adtomi parasite.


    Click here to download 9xAdtomi Cleanup.zip.

    Unzip the files to a folder of your choice.

    Now see if there is an Adtomi or yahoo stocks icon in your system tray , it might be a red ?? and if so right click and select remove , you must be online for this part

    --A web page from Adtomi would appear "-uninstall was succesful!".

    *Note: Not all infections have this icon, so if you don't have it just proceed with the rest.


    Now go offline before proceeding with the rest of these instructions.


    If you have a Script Blocking Program enabled, disable it first so the scripts may run.

    Next press CTRL+ ALT+DEL to bring up task manager, look in applications for this UIUF7UH9.EXE and End Task on it. If it isn't listed in the applications, then look in processes tab.


    Close all open windows, open the Adtomi cleanup folder and Double Click Cleanup.bat then close the Adtomi cleanup folder while the cleanup.bat file runs.

    *NOTE: DO NOT Touch the VBS files. The bat file will run the scripts all by itself.

    It will:

    Remove the Adtomi Spyware files from the Windows Folder
    Clean the Startup Folders
    Create Backups of the Adtomi exe files it deletes and save them in this folder
    Create a list of all oddly named files deleted from the Windows Folder
    Uninstall the Browserhelper.dll browser plugin
    Start HijackThis and give you directions on what to remove.


    When you have finished please restart the computer.

    Go to the folder that you extracted the Adtomi cleanup files to and find the Adtomi.txt file. Come back here and copy and paste the contents of that text file here along with a fresh Hijack This log.

    You will have to install WinZip. After installing WinZip click on 9xAdtomi Cleanup.zip then follow the directions to unzip the Adtomi cleanup file. After you have unzipped the Adtomi cleanup file run it according to my previous instructions.

    OKAY! The pop-ups are gone! But, my AOL still launches all by itself. What is causing that? Also, where is my system tray? I was unable to verify if I had Adtomi or Yahoo stocks icon because I don't know where the ststem tray is. When I pulled down the Task Manager, I was unable to locate UIUF7UH9.exe in the applications, and I don't know where the processes tab is located so I couldn't look there. Can you help me?
