  1. Hi - Having been plagued with the above for the last few weeks I have spent most of today following the advice contained in previous threads on this subject together with carrying out the detailed directions contained in your "Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions" thread without success. Despite running AVG Anti-Virus, AVG Anti-Spyware and Spybot S & D I still find these annoying pop-ups appearing at random intervals whilst browsing with I.E. 7 Any further help or advice you can provide would be most welcome. I have attached the various logs that I think you require t see and would advise that the AVG Anti-rootkit scan reports that no rootkits were found.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Delete all files in AVG Antispyware quarantine.

    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    PlaySkip.exe
    THEDAV~1.EXE

    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Body Kind Dash Axis] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Application Data\Fork internet body kind\PlaySkip.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [TheDaVinciCode_Setup.exe] C:\DOWNLO~1\THEDAV~1.EXE /r

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\DOWNLO~1\THEDAV~1.EXE
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Application Data\Fork internet body kind<Delete the entire folder.

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know if you`re still having problems.

    Hi Howard - So far, so good! Your directions appear to have worked and I am grateful to you for your help. I have posted a fresh HJT log as requested. Thanks again.

    Your HJT log is now clean.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) 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.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)
