Please read these instructions carefully

*Click Here to download Killbox by Option^Explicit.
*Extract the program to your desktop and double-click on its folder, then double-click on Killbox.exe to start the program.
*In the killbox program, select the Delete on Reboot option.
*In the field labeled Full Path of File to Delete enter the file paths listed below ONE AT A TIME (EXACTLY as it appears, please double check to make sure! I would just copy each file path and paste it in the field):

C:\explorer.cab
C:\Program Files\buddylinks.net\uninst.exe
C:\Program Files\Time of Defiance\Launcher\nicelauncher.exe.inuse
C:\WINDOWS\ceres.dll
C:\WINDOWS\inf\farmmext.inf
C:\WINDOWS\inst\3p_1n.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\bln02nqv.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\lcinstaller.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mseggo.gif
C:\WINDOWS\system32\msglji.gif
C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiaih.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\unimt.exe


Press the button that looks like a red circle with a white X in it after each one. When it asks if you would like to delete on reboot, press the YES button, when it asks if you want to reboot now, press the NO button. Do this after each one until you have entered the LAST file path I have listed above. After that LAST file path has been entered press the YES button at both prompts so that your computer restarts.

Let me know how it's running.

You are very welcome!

Congratulations your log is clean! Great job on the clean up :tazz:

I highly recommend checking the Microsoft website periodically for critical updates to install.

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • 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.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer 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.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program<= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kapersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall<= A firewall is definitely a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneLabs.

Don't forget to re-enable Microsoft Anti-spyware and get rid of one of your anti-virus programs :tazz:
