    I am running win 98, and everytime I turn my computer on, it goes through a whole series of message boxes saying "invalid shortcut" with a bunch of letters and numbers, none of which look familiar. I have run Ad Aware, PC Bug Doctor, Spybot, but they still come back...I ran 'hijack this' and hoped someone could tell me what to do next. I have tried to get rid of them in the startup (msconfig), but to no avail. Also run Norton Antivirus each day, which allows me to get on line....check out the start up things down below, and the global??? Please help...thank you!! bethl

    Hi Bethl and welcome to TSG,

    You have lots of issues in your log so I'm going to request that this thread be moved over to the Security forum.

    In the meantime though, you can run the following programs and then post another log for the experts to look at. I also suspect you may have the Adtomi parasite but not 100% sure.


    Go here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/
    and download Ad-Aware 6 Build 181

    Install the program and launch it.

    First in the main window look in the bottom right-hand corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest reference files.

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------ON=GREEN

    From main window: Click Start then Activate in-depth scan (recommended)

    Click Use custom scanning options then click Customize and have these options selected: Under Drives and Folders put a check by Scan within archives and below that under Memory and Registry put a check by all the options there.

    Now click on the Tweak button in that same window. Under Scanning engine select Unload recognized processes during scanning and under Cleaning Engine select Let windows remove files in use at next reboot

    Click proceed to save your settings.

    Now to scan just 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 click Next)

    Restart your computer

    Download and run: SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY, here:


    Open Spybot Search & Destroy (Click Start, Programs, Spybot S&D (Advanced Mode). Click online, Search for updates, Download all available updates. Close all Browser windows, Click ''Check for Problems'', Put a check in every entry Spybot Search & Destroy flags with a red exclamation mark and click ''Fix Selected Problems'' , Then restart your computer.

    Download both of these for added protection: SPYWAREBLASTER & SPYWAREGUARD, here:

    Also, proably one of the first things you should do is follow Derek's advice in post 3 here for removal of the "Morze" trojan -- it is the one creating all those shortcuts. Then do the other adware removal procedures as well, reboot and post another Scanlog.

    Here are the removal instructions for Adtomi ("Morze" trojan).

    To get rid of Adtomi run this script put together by Mosaic1:

    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 file U0XD3DLV.EXE and End Task on it. Open Task Manager again and make sure it is gone.
    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. Copy and paste the contents of that text file here along with a fresh Hijack This log. There will be a bit left to remove with Hijack This.
