Hey there,

I feel a bit intrusive posting my problem and log file on here, kinda like going to see the Godfather for help. But im so desparate ill try anyway.

My probelm probably started as most others' did, in a rage of closing popups and 'Click ok to enlarge penis' Popups ive probably accidentally (yes accidentally) clicked ok, and bobs your uncle gotten this shite installed on my computer... Im an Information Systems student at the University of Melbourne Australia and still with my vast computer knowledge (lol, just joking) still cannot figure a way to remove this shit.. Everytime IE runs it changes the startup/search pages etc etc.. and after manually deleting the .dll files and registry entries it still fires back up and reinstalls it all.. Ive tried every spyware program under the sun: Ad-aware, spybot, CWShredder, The 'Fix it' function of HijackThis etc etc to no avail.. Heres my log and id be very appreciative if someone could help me...

It seems ive fixed the problem and cleaned everything up - for now...

I booted in safe mode, then deleted all the files from the 'temporary internet files' directory and 'temp' folders, (all located in Local Settings) then used hijackthis to fix the lines with res://C:\WINDOWS\pqkyz.dll/sp.html#96676... yes you've all seen them... and then just checked in regedit to make sure there were no more traces of some bullshit start/search pages that i didnt want.

The other thing i did was delete the suspect .dll files in c:\windows... I dont think this step is necessary because all they contain is the html for the webpages it loads (encrypted of course)... but i got satisfaction from deleting them nonetheless..

I then rebooted in normal mode and hey presto when i ran IE, eveything was all good. Its also a good idea before rebooting (while still in safe mode) to run ad-aware from Lavasoft to get rid of other shitty spyware while the temp internet files and cookies are all disposed of.. It's the best program by far.

Hopefully that may help a few of you waiting for responses from the moderators here at this website... They do a great job even though it seems i didnt need to bother them in the first place... Its not often you find people on the net willing to help ordinary people like me out with frustrating annoying problems like this.

I just want to make it clear that people shouldnt just go around deleting .dll's as they see fit... Make sure you know exactly what each does before yout think about deleting them.

I dont claim to have any great knowledge on the whole spyware front, so i wouldnt suggest posting any questions about how i got that to work, but hey i hope this information helps at least some of you in my situation.

PS: I wish i could have 5 minutes with the bastards that make this shit.. I would see to it that they walk away very bruised and battered... oh the satisfaction :rofl:
