Do you use spyware sherrif as a spyware checker program?, If not, then personally i wouldnt pay much heed to what it came up with. A lot of these 'popups' come from sites, saying you have SPYWARE, in big letters, FREE DOWNLOAD making you think that you need THEIR program to get rid of it. Once you download their product, and run it, then it tells you, oh btw, it will cost you $$$ to get rid of it..

run some more spycheck programs, IE, adaware, spybot search n destroy, webroot spychecker, spydoctor, pc bug doctor, M$ anti spy, all of which are available free, if you search hard enough. Download these programs, update all the defintions, then scan the entire pc, and follow all instructions on screen to rid the pc of spyware.

Then on a weekly basis, run the programs again, and update the definitions monthly to keep on top of it all.

I have never found one progrtam to be able to get rid of all the spyware. Typically use 4-6 programs.

You need to download a good Spyware and Trojan Removal program.

Spybot Search and Destroy:
http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=spybotsda

SpySweeper:
http://www.webroot.com/wb/products/spysweeper/index.php
This will also protect your home page from being hijacked.

Ad-Aware:
http://www.lavasoft.de/

The new one from Microsoft

With any of the above programs, just like with Anti-Virus software, should have the latest updates installed before doing a scan.

You might also need to scan from safe mode as well.

CWShredder:
http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads/tools/CWShredder.exe

KazaaBeGone
http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/kazaabegone.zip

Programs that can help prevent getting infected:

Spyware Blaster

Spyware Guard
http://www.wilderssecurity.net/spywareguard.html

Please do the following:

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
  • Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Click here to download smitRem.exe.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • It is a self extracting file.
  • Doubleclick the smitRem.exe and it will extract the files to a smitRem folder on your desktop.
  • Do not do anything with it yet. You will run the RunThis.bat file later in safe mode.


Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here.
  • 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. You will do that later in safe mode.


Click here for info on how to boot to safe mode if you don't already know how.


Now copy these instructions to notepad and save them to your desktop. You will need them to refer to in safe mode.


Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:


Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.


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


Go to Control Panel > Internet Options. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


Next go to Control Panel > Display. Click on the "Desktop" tab then click the "Customize Desktop" button. Click on the "Web" tab. Under "Web Pages" you should see an entry checked called something like "Security info" or similar. If it is there, select that entry and click the "Delete" button. Click OK then Apply and OK.


Restart back into Windows normally now.


Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

When the scan is finished, have it clean anything that it cannot clean. Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself.
- Save the results from the scan!

Post a new HijackThis log along with the results from ActiveScan
