    It seems like ive tried everything

    I can't get these yield manager pop-ups to stop I don't have Begin2Search or CoolWebSearch(or thats what about buster and swshredder are telling me). I don't know what to do, the pop-ups are driving me insane and any help would greatly be apreciated

    Boot in Safe Mode.
    Switch System restore OFF.
    Press Ctrl/Alt/Del simultaneously, select Taskmanager/Processes, select the process (if there), click "End Process" for:

    knnnuj.exe
    LimeWire.exe

    Next, try to UNinstall anything to do with (not delete yet!):
    C:\Program Files\LimeWire\LimeWire.exe

    Next, run a HJT scan and place a tick-mark in the little square before (if still there):
    ...................................................................................................
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\knnnuj.exe
    C:\Program Files\LimeWire\LimeWire.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AUNPS2] RUNDLL32 AUNPS2.DLL,_Run@16
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KavSvc] C:\WINDOWS\System32\knnnuj.exe reg_run
    O4 - Startup: LimeWire On Startup.lnk = C:\Program Files\LimeWire\LimeWire.exe
    O23 - Service: System Startup Service (SvcProc) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe (file missing)
    ...................................................................................................
    Now click on the Fix Checked button in HJT.

    When done, from between the dotted lines, delete the highlighted bold files.
    When a \directory-name\ is bold, delete everything in it, including that directory itself.
    Delete all files and directories from: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Temp
    Repeat this for ALL [usernames].
    Delete all files and directories from: C:\WINDOWS\Temp (except files dated from TODAY).
    Boot normal. When all OK, switch System Restore back on.
