First time posting here. I have some sort of spyware on my laptop that causes pop-up windows to appear on the screen when and after i open or close internet explorer. Everytime I run Adaware or Spybot Search and Destroy it locates something but the problem still exists. suggestions?

Hi,
Download "Hijack This!"
http://www.spywarein.../hijackthis.zip

Create a folder via Windows Explorer for HijackThis, unzip, then move the file (HijackThis.exe) to that folder. This way any backups created are saved in a legit folder.

Double-click "HijackThis.exe" and Press "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Click: "Save Log" (generates: "hijackthis.log")

Copy and Paste the entire log into your next post.

Note: do not attempt to "Fix" anything, as we need to see the entire log.
Also if you have any Startup items unchecked in Msconfig, uncheck those items, reboot, then post a fresh log. HijackThis can not "see" disabled items in Startup.

Hint: after posting your log click "Track this topic" at the top of the page, this way you will be notified (email) when a response is made to your post.

Hi,
Create a folder via Windows Explorer for HijackThis, unzip, then move the file (HijackThis.exe) to that folder. This way any backups created are saved in a legit folder.

1) Restart in Safe Mode (see "How To:" below)
2) Enable Hidden Files (see "How To:" below)

Locate and delete the following:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\lbkscind.exe <--this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\2pgasvcp.exe <--this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\pv6moni.exe <--this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\mevtmsgn.exe <--this file
C:\WINDOWS\alchem.exe <--this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\bridge.dll <--this file
C:\Program Files\LimeShop <--this folder

While still in Safe Mode:
Close all open windows, rescan with HijackThis and "Fix checked" the following:

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - _{CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {000020DD-C72E-4113-AF77-DD56626C6C42} - C:\WINDOWS\twaintec.dll (file missing)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RunDLL] rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\System32\bridge.dll",Load
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [lbkscind] C:\WINDOWS\System32\lbkscind.exe

Restart normally and then ...

Download the latest version of Ad-Aware:
http://www.lavasoft....ftware/adaware/

After installing AAW, and before running the program.

Reconfigure Ad-Aware for Full Scan:
Please update the reference file following the instructions here:
http://www.lavahelp....dref/index.html

Launch the program, and click on the Gear at the top of the start screen.

Click the "Scanning" button.
Under Drives & Folders, select "Scan within Archives".
Click "Click here to select Drives + folders" and select your installed hard drives.

Under Memory & Registry, select all options.
Click the "Advanced" button.
Under "Log-file detail", select all options.
Click the "Tweaks" button.

Under "Scanning Engine", select the following:
"Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile" and
"Unload recognized processes during scanning."
Under "Cleaning Engine", select the following:
"Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."
Click on 'Proceed' to save these Preferences.
Please make sure that you activate IN-DEPTH scanning before you proceed.

After the above post a fresh log ...

Mike,

I was unable to locate:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\lbkscind.exe <--this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\2pgasvcp.exe <--this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\pv6moni.exe <--this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\mevtmsgn.exe <--this file

Therefore I was unable to locate:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [lbkscind] C:\WINDOWS\System32\lbkscind.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [2pgasvcp] C:\WINDOWS\System32\2pgasvcp.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [pv6moni] C:\WINDOWS\System32\pv6moni.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [mevtmsgn] C:\WINDOWS\System32\mevtmsgn.exe

Everything else was located and deleted as instructed.
I did force the computer to show hidden files. I searched for them all by using the search tool in the start menu as well as manually viewing the folder myself and attempting to locate them.

I reinstalled Ad-aware event though I think I had the current version and followed the directions for that. It found 30 new objects ( 4 Processes, 15 Registry keys, 5 Registry values, and 6 files).

Here is the new log from Hijackthis:

Hi,
Your log looks clean now except that I see you have one or more items disabled in Msconfig, that you did not previously ...

Note: HijackThis can not "see" disabled items. If one of these items were from troubleshooting your problem, uncheck that item and reboot. Then post a fresh log, otherwise you can ignore the above.
