    Hope you can help , CiD pop ups driving me mad.

    I have run through the preliminary removal instructions & attached the required log files. Think I got it right but apolagies if I have not.

    Many thanks

    Hi Tobes2003,

    Please go to your add/remove programs and delete anything to do with
    party poker,

    Do you have messenger plus installed?

    Do you have any of the following in your add/remove programs?

    Download Plugin for Internet Explorer
    Lop.com
    LOP SEARCH
    Messenger Plus
    Ultimate Browser Enhance
    Window Search
    Window Searching
    Zone Media

    If yes then,

    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.


    Boot into safe mode and show all hidden files and folders,

    Do a search and delete anything to do with,
    Party Poker.

    Boot back into normal mode and run Hijackthis and post back with a new log.

    Please Download NoLop to your desktop

    First close any other programs you have running as this will require a reboot
    • Double click NoLop.exe to run it
    • Now click the button labelled "Search and Destroy"
      <<your computer will now be scanned for infected files>>
    • When scanning is finished you will be prompted to reboot only if infected, Click OK
    • Now click the "REBOOT" Button.
    • A Message should popup from NoLop. If not, double click the program again and it will finish Please Post the log of C:\NoLop.log


    Download fl.zip
    • Extract the contents of the fl.zip to a new folder on Desktop.
    • Within the folder, locate & double-click fl.bat.
    • It should produce a report at c:\findlop.txt. Post the log in your next reply

    Fair enough then, ditch IE and only use Firefox,

    To create a clean restore point,

    Turn off system restore.(XP) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.

    Update your Java Runtime Environment
    • First try going to Start -> Control Panel -> double click Java
    • Select the Update TAb at the top
    • Click the Check for Updates button at the bottom
    • If it finds the newer version (Java 6 Update 5) Follow the on screen instructions
    • After it installs the newest version Go back to Control Panel -> Add/remove programs
    • Uninstall any older versions of Java

    If for some reason you couldn't update through the above instructions.
    • Click the following link
      Java Runtime Environment 6 Update 5
    • The 4th option down is the one you want (click Download)
    • Check the box to agree to terms of service
    • Check the box for your operating system and click 'Download selected'at the bottom
    • After the install Go to Start-> Control Panel-> add/remove programs (Programs and features), and uninstall any old versions
    • Navigate to C:\programfiles\Java -> delete any subfolders except the jre1.6.0_05 folder

    Any more problems then use this post.
