Download AdAware from http://www.lavasoft.de/

Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".

Make sure the following settings are made and on (ON=GREEN)

From main window click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

Click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning", "Cleaning engine" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

To save your settings click "proceed".

Now click the "Scan" button.

When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose"select all" from the drop down menu) then press next and then say yes to the prompt, do you want to remove all these entries.

reboot again, and let Adaware run if it asks.

How to use Lavasoft's VX2 Cleaner plug-in

- Close Ad-Aware 6 build 181 and Ad-Watch (if running)
- Download the free VX2 Cleaner at http://updates.ls-se...lvx2cleaner.exe
- Install the VX2 Cleaner
- Start Ad-Aware 6 build 181
- Go to "Plug-ins"
- Select the VX2 Cleaner plug-in and click "Run Plugin"
- If your computer isn't infected, click "Close".


If your computer is infected

- Select "Clean system"
- Reboot your computer
- Scan your computer with Ad-Aware
- Remove any VX2 objects detected
- Reboot your computer again
- Run a second scan to make sure the files have been removed from your computer

More information on VX2 can be found in the TAC database at http://www.lavasoftn...ain.php?tac=VX2

I completed the steps above with no success the same 3 pop-ups are appearing every time. When I run KillBox it seems to find the VX2.Betterinternet search on the computer. I check the temp files and the same one get created along with an executable file GLB1A2B.EXE and links.tmp. I can remove these files but they are still returning. The 3 pop-ups only happen once each once I start IE for the first time after signing on and stay in IE for a few minutes. After I close each of the 3 pop-up windows, no more pop-ups and those don't continue to pop-up until I restart the computer. The following is my most current HJT log in case this help. I am wondering if the problem isn't in IE startup or Windows startup.

OK. It appears that the VX2 plugin did not work in this case.
Please download VX2 finder and run it.

Click on the "find VX2 betterinternet" button. When the scan is complete, click on make log. Copy & paste the log into a reply here.

That does not look like a VX2 infection to me, at least.

Have Hijack This fix all of the following by placing a check in the appropriate boxes and hitting fix checked. Make sure all browser and all Windows Explorer windows are closed before fixing.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Multimedia Codecs] C:\WINDOWS\System32\mcc.exe

Reboot and delete the file C:\WINDOWS\System32\mcc.exe

Please post a followup Hijack this log, and say if your problems persist.
