Hey, i'm having trouble getting rid of twain-tech and Vx2. I've tried alot of things posted in other topics...I've tried xv2 plugin for adaware which doesnt detect anything :S..ive got vx2 finder, i'll post the log below, only spy sweeper finds them, adaware and spybot dont. I've been to the twain-tech link and followed their instructions to no avail. I've tried starting up in safe-mode and deleting mxtarget.dll, which is gone now, but not because of that....I serioulsy need some help.

Also i have BHO from newdotnet which is giving me a search bar on my taskbar...this will just not go away. I've uninstalled newdotnet....i've hijacked it away with hijackthis...this is just as frustrating..if not mroe than the immortal adwares.

Here's my hijackthis log and vx2 finder log:

  • We need to remove a program called "Twain-Tec". To do this, first you need to disable System restore as per the instructions at here/url]. Twiantec.dll is a transponder. HijackThis will detect it as a BHO but it must not be removed using HijackThis. This is because of the remaining registry entries and files which can be dangerous. Instead the following method of removal is preferable and complete:
    Go to "Add/Remove Programs" => Uninstall "Twain-Tech". Reboot the computer to SAFE mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?. Delete twaintech.dll and twaintec.ini If twaintech.dll is in use, then you would need to rename it, reboot the computer, and then delete it.
  • Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete once => Click Task Manager => Click the Processes tab => Double-click the Image Name column header to alphabetically sort the processes => Scroll through the list and look for "PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe". If you find the file, click it, and then click End Process => Exit the Task Manager.
  • Run HijackThis, click on "Scan" and then place a check mark in the following boxes, And click on "Fix Checked":
    F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\Windows\System32\wsaupdater.exe,
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {0000607D-D204-42C7-8E46-216055BF9918} - (no file)
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {4A2AACF3-ADF6-11D5-98A9-00E018981B9E} - (no file)
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {82315A18-6CFB-44a7-BDFD-90E36537C252} - (no file)
    O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe

  • Enable System restore as per the instructions [URL=http://www.pchell.com/virus/systemrestore.shtml]here/url].
    Please reboot into safe mode - [url="http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406?openDocument&src=sec_doc_nam"]How do I boot into "Safe" mode?
  • The following FILES, DIRECTORIES and DIRECTORY CONTENTS (But not the directory) need to be deleted while in safe mode. Make sure your settings allow you to view "Hidden files". Open up any explorer windows and click on "Tools" => "Folder Options" => "View" and be sure to check off "Show Hidden Files and Folders". If the files etc listed are not present - Do not worry, just delete those that you can find. If no path is listed, you may need to search for the file(s) - To search, click on "Start" => "Search" => "For Files and Folders" => "All Files and Folders" and type in the file name. You can delete it right from the search results window.
    • DIRECTORY CONTENTS (But not the directory)
      • C:\Windows\Temp\
      • C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\ <=This will delete all your cached internet content including cookies. This is recommended and strongly suggested.
      • C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temp\
      • C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\
      • C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temp\
      • Empty your "Recycle Bin"
      • Nothing Yet
    • FILES
      • PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe
  • Reboot again and log in normally, repost a new HijackThis log into this message for further review.
