I was having problems with a Trojan.W32.looksky" virus and popups with virus warnings and automatic internet launches (PCSECURE & virusprotectionproonline). Through a combination of AVG, Spybot and SmithraudFix.exe, I no longer get the pops ups or warnings but not sure how to confirm all is "OK"!

I use Symantic Antivirus as the norm but added those noted above.

i have run a complete scan with all and get no more popups or warnings but leary to launch my email

Hi Bradm and welcome to G2G. To make sure you are clean, let's run some scans.

* Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
