  1. Hi,

    it seems ever since i accidently lowered my security settings on IE when i was haveing Java problems on a website something has embedded itself on my PC and i can't find it to remove.

    I like playing poker and casino software online. I have noticed two problems now when i'm on the internet:

    1) When i go to a URL which includes the words "Poker" i automatically get routed to an unwanted URL

    2) The same happens with the word "casino" but i get routed to a different URL.

    Because my laptop is the property of my employer, i approached them to advise on spyware removal and they installed and ran a program which removed various programs but has not solved the problems above.

    Can anyone help me please?

    Thanks for the info.

    I think i have another problem now in that when i try to access safer-networking i get directed to adwareremovergold.

    Is this evidence of another infection?

    What i do notice when on my URL line before the adware link comes up is reference to res://C:\WINNT\system32\shdoclc.dll/navcancl.htm

    Could this have something to do with problem? Any suggestions?

    Seems to me that your computer is full of spyware. I had this trouble when i connected to microsoft for updates.

    Try Spyware blaster, adaware, spyware sweeper and see if that helps

    Get a friend to download those programs for you and burn them on a CD or copy them on a USB-memorystick.
    Even just following the HJT-advise in my post (and running it) should get you on your way to do the rest.

    Ok, so i've done the hijackthis file (attached). I then ran CWshredder, that came up with no problems.

    I read through the instructions for removing common hijackthis rotters but not 100% sure if what i'm doing is correct. Would appreciate someone to look at this file.

    Boot in Safe Mode
    Try to UNinstall anything to do with this crap:

    C:\Program Files\STOPzilla!\Stopzilla.exe
    C:\Program Files\tioga\client\bin\tgcmd.exe

    Next, press ctrl/alt/del and try to stop these processes:

    Next, run HJT on its own and 'fix' (if still there):

    When done, delete the bold files. When a directory is also bold, delete everything in it, including that directory itself.

    seems to have done the trick. I can now access the correct web pages.

    Many thanks!
