Hi Tony,

I had somehow acquired the Lop.com parasite... :rolleyes:
passthrough/popupbaropener. In my search to find
something to clean it out, I found a post by Dance mom
and followed your directions to her about getting the
Hijack program. Below is my log...would you please
tell me what I need to clean out and what I don't. While
I tend to be fairly PC literate...I'm new at this one and
don't have time for mistakes.

Thanks.
Have fun. :D
Sky

Hi Nok1,

I scanned with both of these prior to writing to you. All the settings were as you indicated...but I ran the scan again...you will see the logs below. I got this passthrough popup bar when my son went on line to find MP3's. Anyway, I've had and used spyblaster, spybot and ad-aware 6 regularly...as well as McAfee Anti-virus and McAfee Stinger. I keep everything updated weekly...so all I had to do was run all the scans again.
Ad-aware found 16 objects when I ran it in the customized mode, and nothing in the Smart system mode...see below. Spybot found nothing either...nor did stinger. You may also like to know that before I wrote you initially, I had gone into regedit and searched for the things with the popup bar path names in them and cleaned them out by hand.
Not to worry...if I don't know what something is, I leave it alone. I'm also fairly
familiar with DOS and going into the setup program from a boot up, and I've also used a start-up disk to get into my restore files to clean viruses out by hand...so if you end up needing me to do any of that, I'm familiar enough to be talked through the steps.

My machine usually runs quite well until one of these annoying little anomalies "pops up". Then I get to enjoy another new learning curve by asking the experts, such as
yourself for help. You're skills are appreciated by this "learned it by doing it" amateur.

Anyway...here's the first Ad-aware log after using the custom scan...

My second question for you after we get all this popup bar stuff cleaned out is....do you know of a free popup blocker I can download? If so, where can I get it? I haven't
used the firewall because my kids play online games and have clans, and so on....if you
have any ideas of what to use that won't interfere with my installed software, there gaming and will block popups....(freeware would be best) please tell me. That would be a wonderful thing, indeed.

Thanks ever so much,
Sky

I should think you would want to remove the objects that the custom Ad-Aware scan found ...

The "smart scan" uses a pre-defined set of options that is adequate for routine cleaning, but the full custom scan does do a better job of examining the computer. I run the custom scan whenever a new reference file is released, and a smart scan in between.

I have other security measures, but many people on this board use the Google toolbar with the pop-up blocking feature: http://toolbar.google.com/

Hello Winchester,

You wrote...>>I should think you would want to remove the objects that the custom Ad-Aware scan found ...<<

My reply; :rolleyes:
>>Well of course. And I did exactly that, immediately upon saving a copy of
the scan log. As I said in my last thread...Ad-aware found 16 objects when I ran it in the customized mode, and nothing in the Smart system mode...<<

You wrote...>>I have other security measures, but many people on this board use the Google toolbar with the pop-up blocking feature: http://toolbar.google.com/<<

My reply; ;)
>>I use the google search page as my IE browser start page. Alas, this poor amateur does not have the time to learn how to surf the internet and become better acquainted with "what is out there". Too many non-computing related "irons in the fire" to take the time. Thanks for the tip.
Will get right on the job of setting that up.

:( My original question was according to the HijackThis program. The tech's had told Dance Mom (her dad had the same issue) to send them a log of what the Hijack program had found so they could tell her which files should be cleaned/fixed and which ones to keep. That is what I did...I scanned with the Hijack program as well as all the others, and I am still waiting to hear back on that question, in my original post. I think I've been pretty clear in the information I've given so far.

Thanks again.

Okay, good that you fixed the items with Adaware, but I didnt see a new HJT log - I guess I forgot to mention for you to do so, I appologize. From your old log, I can tell you to remove this entry, and the others might've changed

Hi Nok,

Oversight has been overlooked. :eek:D
It's easy enough to do. Earlier today,
I did install the google toolbar in
order to use the popup blocker.
Here's the HJT log...I just did it.
Looking forward to hearing from
you. Thanks for your reply.

Later,
Sky

Perhaps a fresh HJT log would be useful ...

I should think this Alset Help Express item was removed already:

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

This item needs some looking into:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Link Ball] C:\PROGRA~1\FLAPTW~1\Bib Does Flaw.exe

Remove these items from you HJT log:

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =

O8 - Extra context menu item: Coupons - file://C:\Program Files\couponsandoffers\System\Temp\couponsandoffers_script0.htm

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

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Link Ball] C:\PROGRA~1\FLAPTW~1\Bib Does Flaw.exe


Next, click on the following URL and upload the file below, then post results back here:
C:\PROGRA~1\FLAPTW~1\Bib Does Flaw.exe (the directory should be C:\Program Files\FLAPTW* where the * is any number/letter.)

http://www.kaspersky.com/remoteviruschk.html

Next, delete the following file in safe mode (hidden/system files may need to be on, instuctions for both bottom of post)
C:\WINDOWS\emsw.exe

show hidden and system files - http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,4155-1916458,00.html
Safe Mode - http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406

After doing all of that, it's a good idea to post one more log.

EDIT:
The directory for the odd file is C:\Program Files\FLAP TWO

You can if you'd like. Its not anything harmful. Oh, and the timezone thing, I was just proving to myself I was an arrogant self-proclaimed genius :). Don't mind me. Just post a log once done with the instructions i have posted.

I'm sorry...please break this down...it's not making sense...which file below do I upload.
be specific. Is the Bib does flaw. exe something to keep or get rid of? I thought it needed to be gotten rid of. Or is that the file to upload. I'm not sure what you are referencing. :eek:
