Hello all.
I am new to the website and for the most part new to computers. I recieved a hand me down computer from my father. He, at one point or another, took great care of it. However now it seems to be running slow, many pop-ups occur, sometimes it does not allow me access the Internet explorer because so many pop ups occur and will eventually freeze up the computer, and when typing words into a search engine, it will take 2 minutes for it to appear on the screen. I have a Windows 98 and tried some adware blockers but nothing seems to be stopping this problem. My guess it is a virus seeing that most of the problems seem to occur trying to use the internet or web related materials.
please help.

Personally, I would suggest running msconfig and disabling all of your Startup programs, then access the internet and download Ad-Aware SE from here and Microsoft Anti-Spyware Beta from here. You can validate Windows or not, it's optional and the choice is up to you, but you have to click the validation link to choose whether you want to or not. After you download the two programs, use their update feature to update your spyware definitions and then run a full system scan with each program. Then, reboot your computer and, if you have one, run your anti-virus program. Otherwise, that should clear up alot of the pop-ups you're reciveing.

Hi Ryguy2005

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Are you using a Firewall?
Are you using an Anti-Virus scanner?

Minimum requirements for surfing the Internet in this day and age.

I use the Free versions of ZoneAlarm and AVG.
You can download ZoneAlarm at this link:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download388.html
And AVG (Anti-Virus scanner by Grisoft)
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download886.html

________________________________________________________________


Run an online anti-virus check from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
Allow them to clean/delete any spyware/malware or viruses/trojans they may find.
Make a note of any files flagged that were unable to be cleaned or deleted.

Download or verify you have the most recent versions of:
Ad-Aware SE 1.05
Spybot-S&D (ver. 1.3) and
HijackThis (ver 1.99)


Install Ad-Aware SE and Spybot-S&D and check each of them in turn for updates.

For Ad-Aware SE click on Full System Scan and deselect Search for negligible risk entries.
Let Ad-Aware SE remove what it finds.
Run Spybot-S&D and have it fix what it finds marked in Red.

Install HijackThis to a FOLDER on your C or main harddrive, do NOT install HijackThis to a temporary directory.
This will allow HijackThis to properly create backup files.

After running your online virus scans and running Ad-Aware SE and Spybot S&D,
close all programs and reboot to complete the removal process.
After Rebooting your computer,
start HijackThis
click on Do a system scan and save a logfile.
Most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.

Close HijackThis and post your logfile here and one of our security experts will take a look at it.

Hi,
When I downloaded the new version of Hijack This and clicked "open" it read, "Program Not Found. Windows cannot find expander.exe This program is needed for opening 'Aladdin Stufflt Archive'". Then it gives me a choice of "ok" "Cancel" and "Locate"

I dont know what this means and how to get past it. Any clues?

Thanks

Hey Crushbone,
here is the new Hijack This Log File. The only thing is I got a lot of "Illegal procedures" upon doing CWShredder and my computer froze 4 times trying to do the AdAware....It would say "Quaretining items" then switch to "Deleting Items" and thats where it froze. The Spyware Blaster worked fine. Thanks

Here is my new logfile....What I noticed: I noticed that the computer is moving quicker, still has some pop ups and that each time I tried to get rid of O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183....they kept coming back, as you can see from the new logfile.
Thanks Ryan,

Run the VX2 Cleaner plugin for Ad-Aware that you downloaded.

After running the tool, run HijackThis and fix the following entries:

O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 auto.search.msn.com

O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 search.netscape.com

O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 ieautosearch


Run the VX2 Cleaner again and check to see if the entries are gone.

If they aren't, then try doing all of the above in Safe Mode.

Restart your computer and post a fresh HijackThis log back on this thread.
