  1. Hello,

    I have been searching the net as a friend of mine has this problem on his PC. I have seen some posts/topics reference these but at the bottom they say that the solution is for the poster only. People have posted logs, etc. I don't know where to start or what programs you require me to use. Please help as it is really annoying him and his family especially with the inappropiate ads coming up infront of their children.

    I have some PC knowledge but like I say, require help with this one.

    Ceers, Mike

    Hi Mike11, :wave:

    Highjackthis Instructions
    • Make sure you have the LATEST version of HJT (currently v2.0.2)
    • Run the HijackThis Installer and it will automatically place HJT in C:\Program Files\TrendMicro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe. Please don't change the directory.
    • After installing, the program launches automatically, select Scan now and save a log
    • After the scan is complete please attach your log onto the forums using the paper clip icon above your reply.

    1)Uninstall any of the following program(s) using Add/Remove Programs if they are present. To do this, go to Start > Settings > Control Panel and

    double-click on Add/Remove Programs. From within Add/Remove Programs

    highlight each one and select Remove.

    2)Setup" is now displayed. Click on the Uninstall button. Note: options

    displayed on the first screen are not related to the sponsor program.

    3)The sponsor screen is now displayed (if you don't see it, search for it

    in your Task Bar). To prove that someone is currently reading the screen,

    you have to type the code that is displayed
    . Once you enter the code,

    press Uninstall.

    4)If you entered the code properly, the program will ask you to confirm that

    you want to uninstall. You must answer "Yes" to this question,

    else, you won't have another chance of uninstalling.


    5)Reboot your computer

    I need you to follow all the steps HERE and then post back with the three requested logs as attachments
    • AVG antispyware
    • ComboFix
    • Hijackthis (step 15)

    Dont forget to make sure that AVG is set to quarantine the results, that HJT is the last step and to let us know the results of the antirootkit scan.

    Good luck and welcome to techspot.
