Hi,

My system has become infected with the searchmiracle and elitesidebar adware.

I've run Ad-Aware6, Spybot S&D and Microsoft AntiSpyware over and over but they can't completely remove the spyware as it keeps re-installing itself and need help as to how to use the HijackThis software.

Thanks for your help in advance :tazz:

You have not follow my instructions ;)
You did not do the online virus scans :)
You have not read the instructions :)

Are you wasting my time there are many member that need help and can follow the instuctions given. Do not waste my time.

Please set your system to show all files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.

Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake
:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [etbrun] C:\windows\system32\eliteunn32.exe
Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

[*]Reboot into Safe Mode: please see here if you are not sure how to do this.

Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files/folders, and delete them:

C:\windows\system32\eliteunn32.exe

Exit Explorer, and reboot as normal afterwards.

Please run the following free, online virus scans.

http://www.pandasoft...n_principal.htm

Please post the logs From both virus scans and HJT.log we will need them to remove previous infections that have left files on your system.

Hi death_hand

Please read through the instructions before you start (you may want to print this out).

Be sure you're able to view hidden files,

For anyone using Windows XP, 'Search' will not automatically show hidden files even if your folder options settings are set to do that. Do this so you can see hidden files and folders - Click here to download xphidden.zip. Extract xphidden.reg from the zip file and save it to the desktop. When done, double-click the xphidden.reg and when asked to merge say yes.

Please download and install AD-Aware.
Check Here on how setup and use it - please make sure you update it first.
Please don't run it yet.

Download Winpatrol Free

Download the ccleaner
I use this Program and is setup like this all boxs are checked.
Now run the ccleaner


Here is the start off the fix

Using Windows Explorer search for the following files and folders.

C:\Temp\salm_*.dat<--Delete the whole folder
C:\keys.ini<--Delete the whole folder
C:\Program Files\Ares<--Delete the whole folder
