I am trying to help my poor mom get all these spyware and adware programs off her computer. I can't get any work done myself cause she's always asking me to help her. I have run CWShredder, AdAware, SpyBot S&D and McAfee Virus (not in that order). I posted a Hijack this log to another website but every post but mine was answered (some help they offere). I would like to start again in this forum. Hopefully it's better than the other one I used.

I will start with the Hijack This log... Someone please help me help my mom..

Which other forum was this?
Also, for one, you have no updates.. TSk..TSK..


You Have A Variant of the CoolWebSearch Trojan.
Please Download CWShredder from http://www.spywarein...CWShredder.exe and run the Program. Press the "Fix Button" Let it fix all variants. Next, Close the program and Post a Fresh HijackThis log.

Download and install Ad-aware found here: http://www.lavasoftu...pport/download/
After installing you need to download all updates for it. Use the Globe Icon in the program, and "Connect" to download latest Reference-file. Please update it before you scan with it then fix all it finds.
Now do the following:

- Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Scanning Engine:
check: "Unload recognized processes during scanning."

- Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Cleaning Engine:
Check: "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

Press "Scan Now"

- Check option "Use Custom scanning options"
- Check option "Activate In-Depth Scan"
- Press "Select drives\folders to scan"
- Select the active partition which is usually C:

Now press "Next" to let Ad-aware scan your drives...
It will find a number of "bad" files and registry keys. Click 'Next' again
Right-click in that pane and choose "select all"

If it finds "bad" files and registry keys, press "Next" again
It will ask you whether you'd like to remove all checked items. Click OK.

Finally, close Ad-Aware, and reboot.
That ought to get rid of most of your spyware.


Go to START>.ALL PROGRAMS..ACCESSORIES>>SYSTEM TOOLS>> DISK CLEAN UP>> and clean everything...
Go to start >Run and paste this in:
%Userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp folder
It will open your temp folder.
Go to the toolbar>Edit>Select All
Then go back to File>Delete
Then get an online virus scan here: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ Please select the Autoclean option when prompted.
or here: http://www.pandasoft...com/activescan/
After This, Reboot and Post a Fresh HijackThis log.
And well take it from there =)

Also, Please don't PM me your hijack logs. I would you rather post them and PM me if you wish for me to look at them. A PM with a hijacklog will get ignored!

ok, now for the hard one lol

Check and fix these ones:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [FourTick] C:\PROGRA~1\16proc\dart option the.exe
O16 - DPF: {8C285F85-0DBD-11D3-8B37-00A02459FA0F} (CuWeb CuWebConf) - http://ic.vcsystem.c...kages/cuweb.cab

Then reboot and delete this file or folder:
C:\PROGRA~1\16proc\dart option the.exe

You prolly don't have these but please perform these steps anwyays.. with LOP you just never know.

Look in Add/Remove for :
Window Search',or 'Window Searching'
click on 'Remove' and you will be given a security code to insert.
Reboot after uninstall.

OR
if not found in Add/Remove, use links below:
http://lop.com/toolbar_uninstall.exe
http://lop.com/new_uninstall.exe



NOW.. you might have a baddie called ABOUT:BLANK
I'm going to get the proper fix and be back :)

Ok...


Download pv.zip and unzip it.
This program will not work properly if you try to run it from the zip

Open the pv folder, double click on runme.bat

In the menu presented, choose
1. Explorer DLL's
by pressing 1 and then <enter>

A notepad document will open, in its toolbar go to Edit>Select All, then Edit>Copy

Open a reply to this topic, then click in the reply box and press <Ctrl> and <v> at the same time, the pv log will appear.
Click "Add Reply"

We'll take a look at the log and let you know the next steps.

One more thing.. It was brought to my attn that perhaps I should go ahead and have you run a check for L2M.. And he might be right.. he;s good :p

Pleas also do this:

Download VX2Finder from this link:
http://www.downloads...g/VX2Finder.exe


Run Vx2Finder click on the *click to find VX2.BetterInternet* button. Then click *make log*.

Copy and paste the contents of the log into your next reply here.
