One more thing. When I boot into safe mode, I can remove TVM.exe from my registry but when I boot up regular it comes back.

I have google popup blocker but still get occassional popup. Makes me think some adware is still running.

  • How to Remove CoolWebSearch with CoolWeb Shredder <= Please click on this link for instructions on how to download and use CoolWebSearch Shredder which will help remove a CWS infection on your computer. Make sure you close all programs and windows before running it and be sure to click on the "Fix" button.
  • 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 . 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.
  • Run HijackThis, click on "Scan" and then place a check mark in the following boxes, And click on "Fix Checked":

I'm running windows 2000. The insructions for turning off system restore didn't go over that. I went into control panel and system but didn't find it.

So far so good though on removing CWS though, Thanks.

So again, the registry entries get added back in as soon as I delete them. I've go Ad aware Ad watch event logger runnng and as soon as I hit fix on Hijackthis, the registry is changed back.

I know there still there. Each time I remove them they get written back. If I remove in safe mode they stay gone until I boot up normal then their back. Obviously something is running in normal mode that returns my registry to what it was before removal.

If I remove them in normal mode I can watch through ad-watch as they immediately get written back.

I don't know why

OK It seemed that Ad-watch was reinstalling the registry settings. I had to initialize Ad-watch. How does this look?

The rest of the log looks clean :)

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.
