    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    resolution

    I just registered for the site just to post this - I found a quick and easy resolution for the think-adz/brdr problem.


    for think-adz: go to task manager and find a process starting with pw (it changes names from machine to machine from what I understand). Even if it doesn't begin with pw, here's how you fish it out: copy/paste every process you're suspicious of in the explorer search and find the one that is in system32 and has a Think-Adz logo. End the process and delete the file.

    for brdr: the process should be called ljdsrngj.exe (this one could have a slightly different name on your system, like ljdsrngm.exe). End the process, then find it in system32 and delete it. That's all there is to it. I did it a few days ago and no problems since.

    Brdr

    I too get the annoying brdr message. I read your fix but couldn't find one of your .exe (files?) on system 32. Is it in one of the folders? I couldn't see any .exe files in system 32. Can you offer any more guidance in finding / getting rid of this thing? Thanks.
