  1. Looking for a clean bill of health----HijackThis
    I hope I followed the instructions correctly.

    TrendMicro gave me the willies,
    Found: 7 entries
    ADW_SE 123473
    ADW_SE 123475
    ADW_SE 123477
    ADW_SE 123478
    ADW_SE 123481
    ADW_SE 123482
    ADW_SE 123155

    Was un-able to delete/repair or fix.

    Nothing else detected this, I'll assume adware, per instructions.

    Google results in a mystery, suggesting same repairs as
    TS "Security and the Web"

    Only english result so far Kaspersky Labs Forum

    Thank you!

    Let HJT fix these entries.

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =

    Other than that, your log is clean mate.

    Also, turn off system restore and boot into safe mode. Scan again with your antivirus programme. When done, delete whatever it finds, then boot into normal mode and turn system restore back on.

    Regards Howard :)
