I am currently recieving Ebay and PCWorld pop-ups originating from adfarm.mediplex. I have found that this form of spyware oroginates from the ebay toolbar, yet I have never installed the Ebay toolbar. I have also run both Ad-aware and Spybot but both have failed to detect or solve the problem. Are there any suggestions that could be useful?

Thanks, -Warmo-

Can anyone help me? Sorry to be pushy but it seems a lot of post are getting brushed off.

Thanks, -Warmo-

Hi there,


First you need to do this;

Please do this.
Download 'Hijack This!'. Here
Save it to a convenient permanent folder like this C:\HJT\HijackThis.exe, double click HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

Hi there,

Make sure all browsers and windows are closed except for hijackthis and put a check against the following and click 'fix checked';

This is Optional

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE<<<<These items are considered to be resource hogs that are not needed and it may be worthwhile to fix them with HJT. You will still be able to start them manually if you need them...

These are the only 2 on your log.

Reboot, then post a fresh log.

Decided to leave the OSA.exe running but removed the other. Would any of these other applications be causing ebay/adfarm pop-ups?

Hi there,

OSA would not do that, the other was a downloaded program file. Do you have Yahoo as your home/search page etc?

My homepage is set as Google. Does this possibly have an impact?

P.S. Thank you for the help, much appreciated.
