    I have a problem with pop-ups while surfing the web I have google search bar that takes care of pop-ups. except the ones that start off as xads.something. So I know there is some sort of program doing it. I ran Adaware but no such luck.

    First thing to do is move hijackthis.exe into a folder, don't run it from your desktop. Make a folder on your hard drive, like c:\hjt.


    Run HJT again and check:

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =
    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {8952A998-1E7E-4716-B23D-3DBE03910972} - (no file)
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {0000607D-D204-42C7-8E46-216055BF9918} - C:\WINDOWS\mxTarget.dll

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [BLDN] C:\WINDOWS\BLDN.exe
    unless you know what this one is...then don't select it.


    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Belt] C:\WINDOWS\Belt.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [wcmdmgr] C:\WINDOWS\wt\updater\wcmdmgrl.exe -launch
    O8 - Extra context menu item: Web Savings - file://C:\Program Files\WebSavingsfromEbates\System\Temp\ebateswebsavings_script0.htm
    O16 - DPF: {6B4788E2-BAE8-11D2-A1B4-00400512739B} (PWMediaSendControl Class) - http://216.249.24.140/code/PWActiveXImgCtl.CAB

    Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".


    Restart in safe mode Click here to see how


    Open My Computer. Go to Tools, Folder Options and click on the View tab. Make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files". Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Now find these files and folders and delete them.

    C:\WINDOWS\Belt.exe --> file

    C:\WINDOWS\wt --> folder

    C:\Program Files\WebSavingsfromEbates --> folder
