    Hi :

    Based on what you wrote, it sounds like you have what is called a "Rogue"
    program !? It is best to start with, and hopefully end, installing the FREE Version
    of "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware", best downloaded from www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php ; after installation, "Update" it, then run its
    "Full Scan" .

    if so, let us know what they are.

    Same problem!

    hello,
    My PC has also recently gotten affected with this malware. It says in a blue screen on my desktop "Warning: Spyware threat has been detected on your PC" and keeps giving me popups and what not. I have logs from Hijackthis and mbam that I am attaching. PLEASE if someone could help me thru this...it would be REALLY appreciated! thanks much

    ahparekh2002, welcome to TS. The index page for this forum, near the top of the page, left side has the "new thread" starter.

    It appears that you did not fully follow Malware Removal Procedures

    This software has negative views expressed about its foistware
    O23 - Service: Viewpoint Manager Service - Viewpoint Corporation - C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Common\ViewpointService.exe

    No information found for the following.
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [j2 4.2] "C:\Program Files\j2 Messenger 4.2\J2GDllCmd.exe" /R
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Yodm3D] C:\Documents and Settings\Chintan\Desktop\yodm3D\Yodm3D.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [cdloader] "C:\Documents and Settings\Chintan\Application Data\mjusbsp\cdloader2.exe" MAGICJACK

    A future consideration is updating to latest Java.

    That is about as far as I can carry it.
