My computer has been burping a lot lately. I think it ate a bad burrito or something. I have been getting hundreds of pop-ups, despite my pop-up blocker, and my computer has been running slower than a dead hamster caught in its wheel. I run Ad-Aware daily and it always catches somewhere between 72 and 840 critical objects.

It needs HELP!!

I have downloaded HijackThis, and the log follows:

My roommate says you guys can work miracles, and I really don't have to prove her wrong and kill her in her sleep tonight using parts from my broken computer. She has already had a hard week after getting a large suction-cup hickey on her forehead, and I don't think that dying would make it better for her. Plus, I just don't like when my computer is sick.

Thanks for your help!

Welcome to TSG :)

Go to Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs
Uninstall: WeatherBug

Download and run SpyBot Search & Destroy: http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

Install the program. Choose "Search for updates". Next choose "Download updates". After that, choose "Search and Destroy" and click on "Check for problems". If Spybot finds any nasties on your computer, make sure that they are ticked and choose "Fix selected problems".

Reboot, post a new log

Thanks. WeatherBug is gone, and so are all the bad things that SpyBot caught. Here's a new HJT log:

Click Here and download the the new version of Killbox and save it to your desktop.

Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Now put a tick by Delete on Reboot. In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file. It will ask for confimation to delete the file on next reboot. Click Yes. It will then ask if you want to reboot now. Click No. Continue with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.

C:\WINNT\system32\synale.exe

C:\Program Files\Windows AdStatus\WinStat.exe

C:\WINNT\system32\spidm.exe


Exit the Killbox.


Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close ALL windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

Now restart your computer.

After it reboots, restart to safe mode.

How to start your computer in safe mode

In safe mode find and delete the C:\Program Files\Windows AdStatus folder.

Also in safe mode navigate to the C:\WINNT\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box. The Temp folder will open. Click Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


Empty the Recycle Bin
