I have a problem my p.c is flooded with things from webrebate :( , the problem is that I can't run adaware because my p.c has a problem and keeps freezing before it can complete. Is there nothing I can do to fix it quicker, like say 10 minutes?

I'd be so grateful for any help,

Hi, Possibly You will need AdAware SE personal and Spybot Search and Destroy, both.

And you will need to post a Hijackthis log.

I dont think you will make it in 10 possibly 30 minutes is that OK?

Hi, Thankyou for you help but my crappy pc cant run anything longer than 10 mins :( I searched for it and deleted it but we'll have to see if it comes back. If it does is my p.c just a lost cause due to its freezing?

Hi, Simply make a new folder, the desktop is OK provided you create a new folder to hold it, name it just HJT and download to that. Right click on empty place of desktop, select New>Folder and rename that to HJT> run Hijackthis.exe from that folder to create and save a logfile which can then be opened in Notepad and copy/pasted to a reply here in this thread, right here....

Downloads:

HJT
http://tools.radiosplace.com/HijackThis.exe


Just post the log from HJT for now, do NOT use it to remove anything unless you are familiar with it!!!!!!!!

Get these and install etc.
AdAware SE personal free edition:
and SpyBot Search and Destroy

http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloads31.html


There are some directions, and you must run the online updates for each program before scanning with them.

Spybot:
Go to Start > Programs >Spybot > Search & Destroy and choose Spybot S&D

Close ALL windows except Spybot S&D
Click the button to "Search for Updates" and download and install the Updates.
Next click the button "Check for Problems"
When Spybot is complete, it will be showing "RED" (RED) entries "BLACK" entries and "GREEN" (GREEN) entries in the window
Put a check mark beside the RED (RED) entries ONLY.
Choose "Fix Selected Problems" and allow Spybot to fix the RED (RED) entries.

Ad-Aware FULL SCAN:

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)

hi,
I realize your pc cannot stay on longer than 10 minutes...just posting links and info for later when possibly it can. If you can post a log with HJT, we can sort things out and possibly get you running for longer periods of time.

Save a Favorite to your thread or to TSG so you can find us in case anything happens.

When you get HJT start in Safe Mode, pc may run longer that way....

Get to safe mode: Tap F8 key several times at bootup and give it plenty of time to get to safe mode...video is different, never mind how it looks....

HJT runs OK in safe mode so you can fix things and save a log, but you will have to restart to post the log.

Hijack this fits on a floppy disk is there another pc you can download it with? It's very small and you may just be able to download it right now, try....

When you get it downloaded, try to run it, just be sure you are offline, no Internet windows open at all.

You do need to post a log though....so we can tell you what to remove. Usually there is something else besides WerRebates....

I can also show you a recent thread here with just the WebRebates common items you could look for in a run with HJT and remove those if you wish.
