Hello-I having a hard time trying to post my log files for hijackthis.com and my spyware results. Only choice was to re-post with information geekstogo told me to do in the "read before posting" comment. Here is what I have done so far: ran spy-bot, nothing found. Ran Ad-ware, nothing found. The rest you will see below. I am fairly good with computer but cannot figure out how to get rid of this, your help will be appreciate. I had already posted before I read the "read before posting" I am sorry. Just so you know the Panda program you suggested would not let my run the free ware. Everytime I clicked "scan your pc" no new screen came up it did nothing.

I will appreciate anything you can do.

Hello Essex-thanks so much for getting back with me. I orginally stated that when I went to my home page of comcast.net it would come to the screen than re-direct to ad.yieldmanager.com. It would ask for log in. I thought what the hec. I thought maybe it was tool bar problem with google b/c some where on the page there was a google icon (for lack of a better word). So I would retry to get to the homepage and it would do it again. Thinking it was the google tool bar I deleted it. oops it wasn't the tool bar. So I went to your site and read everything I could about what you guys were doing for ad.yieldmanager.com. I posted first than read what I was suppose to do before I posted. I did everything but the "Panda" now know it doesn't work with Vista yet.
After doing all those and listed my log for you I re-booted and had maybe only had one re-direct with ad. yield manager.com. Now today it isn't doing it at all. Does this mean what you had me do worked already? By the forum posts geekstogo had most people do more things. Does this mean my computer was not as infected?
You see nothing in my logs and it looks fine. Is there anything else I should send you? What is the best prevention for this NOT to come back? The superanti spyware log reads threats in memory 1, in registry 9. I know that is b/c of IWin games, should I dump it? Your help is greatly appreciates, I just want to make sure everything is done that I needed to do. BTW..your forums are soooooo very helpful. Waiting for your reply.
redracer36 (Laura)
PS...the re-direct screen is basically ad.yieldmanager.com in the browser and in the main page it is a google page with ad.yieldmanager.com in big blue writing. I know that is a lam way to explain it, sorry

No problem I know exactly what you mean Laura

Your log looks clean, SAS is not detecting anything meaningful

I know that is b/c of IWin games, should I dump it

It is supported by ads so I would recommend that you bin it..

To stop it happening :

I would recommend using IE in protected mode
Look before you click :)
Install SpywareBlaster

Any further questions just ask

So you think the malious adware was not too bad and the ad.yieldmanager was taken care of by your intructions on what to do before I post was all I needed?
I have ad-ware 2007, spy-bot 1.5 and now SUPERantispyware and running Norton Internet Security 2007, is that enough to stay pretty clean? Anything you need me to do after I install spywareblaster? I am going to dump IWIN games right now.
Thanks and waiting for what to do next
Laura
PS...and the threats in SUPERantispyware? no big deal? Is it okay to have so many anti-spyware programs running? I hear they can conflict with each other?

Also wanted to let you know that IE has "enable protect mode" checked already in security...is that what I needed checked?

With Vista I have found that Superantispyware is the only one that works properly (in my experience)

ad-ware 2007, spy-bot 1.5 are not that good now they are getting a bit long in the tooth

Superantispyware is an on demand programme which you only need to use once every week or so to scan your system

spywareblaster is passive and installs a killbit in your registry to stop bad elements being written

Most of the self help guides will cure the problem although there are allways the stubborn ones

Now to get you off to a good start we will re-set your restore points so that all the bad stuff is gone for good. Then if you need to restore at some stage you will be clean. There are several ways to reset your your restore point but this is my method:

1. Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > System Restore.
2. On the dialogue box that appears select Create a Restore Point
3. Click NEXT
4. Enter a name e.g. Clean
5. Click CREATE

You now have a clean restore point, to get rid of the bad ones:

1. Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > Disk Cleanup.
2. In the Drop down box that appears select your main drive e.g. C
3. Click OK
4. The System will do some calculation and the display a dialogue box with TABS
5. Select the More Options Tab.
6. At the bottom will be a system restore box with a CLEANUP button click this
7. Accept the Warning and select OK again, the program will close and you are done

SAS were related to Iwin and IE is correct if on the bottom right of IE you "protected mode on "

Found the "more options" tab. Man it wasn't there when I checked the first time. Must be my eyes and old age.
Anything else you need me to do Essex?

Superantispy and spywareblaster are good to keep

Superantispyware will need to be run manually about once every week or so. On access is not really required at this stage with Vista as you will need to make a determined effort to install the really bad malware (like click the UAC to let the files run )
Spywareblaster just sits there and works

spy-bot and adware to be honest do not work too well with Vista at the moment, but the choice is yours as to whether to keep them or not - personally I would uninstall them

Essex-

Okay I think I will delete as-ware 07 and spy-bot 1.5. I think I will suggest to my son to DL Superanti and Spyblaster.
You have been so helpful and I truly apprecite it. Like I had said in my orginal post I am fairly compter literate but this had me baffled.
THANK YOU SO MUCH
