    Welcome to TSG :)

    Uninstall the following from Add/Remove Programs (if listed there):

    anything related to Need2Find
    P2P Networking

    Click here to download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite:
    http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

    · Install Ewido.
    · During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
    · Launch ewido.
    · It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen.
    · On the left side of the main screen click update.
    · Click on Start and let it update.
    · DO NOT run a scan yet.

    Restart your computer into Safe Mode now.
    (Start tapping the F8 key at Startup, before the Windows logo screen).
    Perform the following steps in Safe Mode:

    * Run Ewido:
    Click on scanner
    Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
    During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK.
    When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
    Save the report to your desktop.

    Reboot.

    Post a new Hijack This log and the results of the Ewido scan.

    Thanks for a speedy a reply.

    I was able to remove P2P Networking after uninstalling kazaa. I was also able to download and install Ewido. I followed your isntructions above but when i tried to run ewido in safe mode for complete scanning, i observed that although ewido was scanning as the display said, but the number of scanned items and the scannning progress indicator was not increasing. I repeated the scannning process at safe mode after restarting but the ewido scanning looked like its always hanging so i just cancelled the scanning procedure. i booted to normal mode then run HJT and the following is the HJT report:

    Download KillBox here: http://www.downloads.subratam.org/KillBox.zip
    Save it to your desktop.
    DO NOT run it yet.

    With IE closed, run Hijack This again.
    Put a checkmark on these entries and hit "fix checked":

    O2 - BHO: Need2Find Bar BHO - {4D1C4E81-A32A-416b-BCDB-33B3EF3617D3} - blank (file missing)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SNPMI03] C:\WINDOWS\vsnpmi03.exe

    O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://kl.bar.need2find.com/KL/menusearch.html?p=KL


    Boot into Safe Mode.

    Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it.
    Now put a tick by Standard File Kill.
    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.
    Click Yes.
    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:\WINDOWS\vsnpmi03.exe

    Exit KillBox.

    Also in safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\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.

    Reboot, post a new log.

    That's not the full log :)

    When it opens in Notepad, do Edit>Select All
    Edit>Copy
    Come back to this thread

    Good i was on the right track in following your instructions. I've not tried it yet for the following reason. I have uninstalled this "K" program to download music and it is in this program that i got this annoying pop-up of ad.yieldmanager. For now i can't test if it will come out again since i have not reinstalled the "K" program. I hope you can give me advise of any alternative programs to download music files that are safe to use. If ever i reinstall this "K" program, is there a great chance that i will be infected with the ad.yielmanager pop-up again? Please help me what to do to prevent such infection. Thanks so much CHEESEBALL81 and more power to TECH SUPPORT GUY!!!

    Does this "K" stand for "Kazaa"?

    I thought so.

    Kazaa is a P2P program, which is notorious for coming bundled with spyware. Not to mention, it's illegal downloads. We don't support P2P use here so it's best that you removed it.

    Some alternatives to downloading music would be:

    walmart.com
    iTunes
    Napster

    (although there would be a slight fee per song)
