Hello, and thanks for the help that is provided here in this forum. The information shared here is beyond helpfull.
The other day, this trojan poped up on my PC , and the instructions provided in this thread helped me remove it. THe thing is, I am not sure it got rid of everything.
I keep getting constant pop-ups blocked on every page I go to, and I am getting a bar at the top of every few pages proclaiming this...
Warning: possible spyware or adware infection! Click here to scan your computer for spyware and adware...
This statement was present when the looksky trojan showed up. It seems ot have a link to one of three spyware programs that showed up without my asking, when I go infected with looksky.
I ran the SmitfraudFix, as suggested, to get rid of the looksky trojan, and it worked to remove it. I ran it again to see if it missed anything, yet this bar keeps showing up. Not only does the bar show up, but if I leave a web page idle for too long, the page will redirect.. To where, I do not know, as I get the "IE can't find this page" message. Also, I keep getting a message from Real Player, telling me to update security. THis message has never poped up before, and I don't even use Real Player very often. I don't want t ofollow it's directions, because I am afraid this message is a fraud.
So far I have tried to fix this problem with...
Hijack This (but on my own, as I have used this program many times before.)
Is there anything else I can do, or have you heard of such problems associated with removing the looksky trojan?
