Hello, I want to know if anyone has heard of TheSearchMall or ILookUp. They both put toolbars on my computer and they cause porn pop ups. When i tried to delete them they came back as my antivirus software, So when i try to take the tool bars off they say i cant cause it has something to do with Norton Anti Virus. Please if anyone knows about them to places please tell me.

Hi Riggs,

Your problem is something that can be cleaned with the HiJackThis tool.

However before creating a log , we are going to do some general cleaning first, just to make sure you dont get a too big log.

A/ If you did not already installed Ad-Aware then download it here :
majorgeeks Ad-Aware download after installing you need to UPDATE FIRST.

After the update you have to adjust your settings as explained here http://forums.spywar...showtopic=11150
Remember to reboot afterwards

B/ Same goes for Spybot S&D: if you already have it then update it, if you dont have it then you can download it from here
After the scan is complete, have spybot fix everything marked RED. Remember to reboot afterwards

C/ Just to be sure also do a FIX with CWShredder, but its perfectly possible it will find nothing , instructions and download you can find here

D/ Now after all that you can create a HiJack-log :
1.)Create a folder for HiJackThis, this is needed to create backups.
2.)Download HiJackThis and put it in the created folder ZIP-file EXE-File
3.)Open the hijackthis program
4.)Close all open windows on your pc except hijack
5.)Now at the buttom left you press Scan
6.)After the scan that same button will change into SaveLog, press it and you will be asked to select a location, put it in the same folder as the hijack program
7.)Once its saved you will see a notepad file opening with results in it, make sure you copy everything inside.
8.)The simply paste your results in you next respons
9.)Close hijackthis and please do not try to fix anything yourself, as most of the things inside are needed to keep you pc running.

CU soon
