hi I recently got a hijacker(spad) but thanks to shadowwar its gone now,but after a week I found a spad folder again but it doesnt seem to affect my homepage or internet speed...but I would like it gone though so my question is(to anyone who has it) if I delete this would It come back and make my computer worse(like change my homepage again or something) and oh yeah I also keep getting this icon(showing an X) on my desktop called "default" it comes on atleast once a week, but doesnt seem to do anything...does anyone else experienced this and if you did what did you do to prevent it from happening again...thanks again:)

Can you please download HijackThis from this link, install it into C:\HJT. Run it, click on scan, save log and please post your entire log here for analysis. From there, I can check to see if there are any files etc in place causing the problem and I can then offer you some suggestions for keeping it off.

Thank you.

Please create a new directory C:\HJT and move the HijackThis.exe file into that directory and only run it from there. That way we can ensure that we have the backup files aavilable in the event that they are needed.

Go into "Add/Remove Programs" and look for any entries along the lines of "Bargain Buddy", "My Bar", "My Speed Bar", "My Way Search Bar" - Uninstall them.

Close all programs/windows.

Run HijackThis and delete the following entries:
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {C1E58A84-95B3-4630-B8C2-D06B77B7A0FC} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\NAVEXCEL\NAVHELPER\V2.0.2\NHELPER.DLL

Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?

Please cleanup temporary files etc. Browse to and select all contents in the following folders (Windows may be WINNT or WIN98 etc.), and delete (Make sure to delete the sub-folders, but not the Temp folders themselves!):
  • C:\Windows\Temp (all contents)
  • C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files (all contents) <=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 (all contents)
  • C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files(all contents)
  • C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temp (all contents)
  • Empty your "Recycle Bin".
  • C:\PROGRAM FILES\BARGAIN BUDDY <= Delete this directory
  • C:\PROGRAM FILES\MYWAY <= Delete this directory
  • C:\PROGRAM FILES\NAVEXCEL <= Delete this directory
Reboot again and log in normally, repost a new HijackThis log into this message for further review.

Your log is looking clean :)

The SPAD folder - Descimate it, destroy it, shred it, obliterate it - Okay, just delete it :)

Please go to Microsoft Windows Update and download all critical updates for your system. This is imperative.

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
To protect yourself further:
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
I also suggest that you delete any files from "temp", "tmp" folders. In Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Delete Files" and select the box that says "Delete All Offline Content" and click on "OK" twice. Also, empty the recycle bin by right clicking on it and selecting "Empty Recycle Bin". These steps should be done on a regular basis.
