  1. Hi, I accidentally downloaded adware.trustinbar and cannot remove it. I tried Norton Antivirus, Ad-Aware SE and housecall.antivirus.com but nothing helped.
    Please, give me an advice. Here is my HijackThis logfile.
    Thanks a lot,
    Michael

    check that it's not in a winzip file or anything
    if it is then programs can't get rid of it sometimes
    delete the zip file and you're fine

    I think it is not a zip file. Norton detected loader2.exe in C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files, but is not able to remove it.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go HERE and follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post a fresh HJT log, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Have HJT fix these entries.

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.kolej.mff.cuni.cz/

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName = Odkazy

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE

    Other than that your HJT log is clean.

    Regards Howard :)
