  1. Well, a few days ago, I wanted to download some free games for my phone.. bad idea, I now keep getting messages from AVG with things such as Virus Found LOP and WIN32 PolyCrypt, also, website banners are replaced with messages saying I have spyware on my pc.. my computer is important to me, as I need it for school and it pretty much has my life on it. I'm not really computer literate, so any help you can give me to get rid of this crap will be excellent -- I need it gone as soon as possible. Thanks guys!

    Hi beckyy,

    With a LOP infection you generally subscribe to something. To rid this particular infection you need to uninstall the offending program and unregister the subsciption.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Remove LOP or Cid problems
    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.

    Netpumper
    BitRoll
    Browser Enhancer
    CiD Help
    CiD Manager
    Download Plugin for Internet Explorer
    Lop.com
    LOP SEARCH
    Messenger Plus
    Ultimate Browser Enhance
    Window Search
    Window Searching
    Zone Media


    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

    6)Run another scan with Hijackthis and attach a new log
