  1. I also seem to have the CiD popup problem. Can anyone help me get rid of this please? I have followed the other instructions which involve getting HijackThis and renaming etc. running and obtaining a logfile. I now have the logfile ready to upload to wherever I am instructed to proceed. I am not a techie, so instructions need to be really simple please. Can anyone help me further please?

    Thanks Bushwacker for the quick response - I have done the logfile bit - do I need to upload it in this thread? Secondly, I have read all that stuff about deciding whether to reformat or not - I don't want to reformat my hard drive thanks, just get rid of this little critter doing the popups. Do I really have to follow all 16 complicated steps (most of which seem to involve downloading lots of antivirus software and running numerous scans - I have Norton!!)?? Hasn't somebody found an easy way of killing this CiD thingy?

    Norton is the worst possible protection for your PC. Do not bother using it. When you're cleaned up I will recommend some software for you to replace the heap of junk that is Norton.

    Yes, you have to follow the instructions so that we can see the logs from your PC. Using an array of software allows us to see different things and gives you a higher chance of getting cleaned, as different programs look for different things.

    Follow these instructions Virus/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and post fresh HJT, Combofix, and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments to a new reply in this thread as well as the result of the Panda Antirootkit scan.
