    Hi all,
    My problem is that I get porn-popups ONLY when I open local files on my computer..NOT when I am browsing the web..

    As you can imagine this drives me batty when I am testing websites that I am working on.

    I am almost sure this came from a FREE FrontPage Theme which I downloaded and installed yesterday.

    Here is my HT log.

    Thanks,
    Larry

    The log looks clean. What theme did you download and from where? I could check if there's any pop-up code there.

    This to me looks like spyware !

    C:\Program Files\Support.com\bin\tgcmd.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [tgcmd] "C:\Program Files\Support.com\bin\tgcmd.exe" /server /nosystray

    Have a look here for info about removing it.

    http://www.winpatrol.com/db/freesample/tgcmd.html

    Second opinion anyone ?

    I believe that is part the BellSouth diagnostics...But I will remove it in case. BellSouth uses that when you have a problem with their DSL, their support people can take control and look around.

    Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close all browser windows and "Fix checked"

    Restart your computer

    Go here http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/ and download Adaware 6

    Install the program and launch it.

    I strongly recommend that you read the help file to familiarize yourself with the program.

    Before running the scan look at the top of the main window and you will see a Gear Icon. This is where you configure the settings. Click on that and then in the next window that pops up click on the "Scanning" tab on the left side. 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.
    The click on the "Tweak" tab and under "Scanning engine" put a check by "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then......under "Cleaning engine" put a ckeck by "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot" then click "Proceed"

    Next in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on "Check for updates now" and get the latest referencefiles.
    After getting the latest referencefiles you are ready to scan.

    Click "Start" and in the next window make sure "Active in depth scanning" is checked then click "Next" and the scan will begin.

    When it is finished let it fix everything it finds.

    Restart your computer.

    Then go here http://spybot.eon.net.au/index.php?lang=en&page=download and download Spybot.

    Install the program and launch it.

    Before scanning press "Online" and "Search for Updates" .

    Put a check mark at and install all updates.

    Click "Check for Problems" and when the scan is finished let Spybot fix/remove all it finds.

    Restart your computer.

    Be sure and take advantage of the "Immunize" feature in Spybot.

    Finally go here http://www.net-integration.net/cgi-bin/forum/ikonboard.cgi?;act=ST;f=38;t=3051 for info on how this happens and how to help prevent future attacks.
    On this page you will find a link to Javacool's SpywareBlaster and Spyware Guard. Get them both and check for updates frequently.
    The Immunize feature in Spybot used in conjunction with SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard and weekly scans with Spybot and Adaware will go a long way toward keeping you spyware free.

    Important!: ALWAYS check for updated detections and referencefiles before scanning with Spybot and Adaware. And be sure to check for updates to SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard on a weekly basis.

    Thanks,, something fixed it.

    I wish I knew which one. It seems when I ran Spybot the last time it found more stuff than it had cleaned the first time.

    I had already removed the BroadJump (BellSouth debug client) and I was still getting the problem.


    Oh and Spyware reports blocking of the ads when I came in to post!

    Thanks everyone.
