  1. Hello all, :wave:

    I've had a problem with popups for so time now but I've managed to just ignore them. I now have a new problem where the web page I'm viewing will automatically change into a "pop up". The screen will suddenly shrink down and go to another web site. It's very annoying, especially since I'm taking an online class this semester. :(

    I saw the thread about how to get rid of coolwebsearch and printed it out last night. I was unable to download the smartkiller for some reason, but besides that I followed all of the steps but I still can't get rid of whatever it is.

    When I run ad-aware it say that there are still traces of coolwebsearch and also zenosearch but it's not able to get rid of it.

    can anyone help?

    Run your antivirus. If you dont have one, search on this site and get one. I like the AVG Antivirus free edition.

    This is one or the worst HJT logs I have ever seen. Follow the instructions below very carefully. Hopefully we can get your system cleaned up, without the need for a reformat.

    Boot into safe mode. See how HERE.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

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

    Go to add remove programme in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    aol toolbar 2.0

    Close control panel.

    Click start/run and type services.msc into the run box and press the enter key. When the window appears, maximise it. Locate the following services(if there) and double click on them. Select stop if they are running and set the startup type to disabled.

    Microszoft Update Machinezs
    Windows Services32

    Click apply/ok

    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 any of these(if there).






    Click start/run and clear the run box. Copy and paste all these lines, one at a time into the run box and press the enter key. Then, clear the run box and proceed to the next line.

    regsvr32 /u C:\WINDOWS\System32\fjqhm32.dll

    regsvr32 /u C:\WINDOWS\System32\jzjd32.dll

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

    Download AVG free and Zonealarm free from HERE and HERE.

    Disconnect from the internet and uninstall your McAfee programme.

    Install Zonealarm, followed by AVG free. Reconnect to the net and run the AVG updates.

    Do a full system scan with AVG. Delete anything it finds.

    I didn't realize my system was that bad! :eek:

    I followed all of those steps. Everything was fine until I installed AVG and Zonealarm. For some reason everytime I tried to connect to the internet, my computer would just shut down and say that I should uninstall any software that was recently installed. So I uninstalled both of them and I am now able to connect to the internet. :confused:

    Maybe I have too many things installed in my computer?

    You deffinitely need an antivirus programme and a firewall, otherwise your system will be reinfected in no time.

    I suspect that it was Zonealarm that caused your shutdown problem. it is a known issue with some systems configurations.

    Reinstall AVG ASAP and after running the AVG updates, do a full system scan.

    As for a firewall try this one HERE.
