    I have 6 icons that were added to my desktop when ezula was somehow installed on my computer. I uninstalled ezula, but the icons are still there. How do I go about getting rid of them?

    I ran adaware and spybot already. Here's the HT log:

    Go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall "WinTools for Internet Explorer V2" and "WeRebates" or "Web Offer"

    Restart your computer.


    Go here and download Adaware SE.

    Install the program and launch it.

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

    From main window :Click Start then under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

    Next deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

    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.


    Also a new version of Hijack This has been released so get rid of the old one and Click here to download the new one, come back here and post the log from it after doing all of the above.

    Here's the new log. If everything is clean should I just delete the icons or is there a better way to go about it?

    Just delete the Icons.

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

    Restart to safe mode.

    How to start your computer in safe mode

    First in safe mode click on My Computer then go to View > Folder Options. Click on the "View" tab and make sure "Show all files" is ticked and uncheck "Hide file extensions for known file types". Click "Like Current Folder" then click "Apply" then "OK"

    Now find and delete this file:

    C:\WINDOWS\Ashlt.exe

    Delete these folders:

    C:\TV MEDIA
    C:\Program Files\Web Offer
