Let's have a party!

Clean out those icons on your desktop. If you rightclick them, go to properties. You will see where it's located. Then delete the source and next delete the icon.

I take it you don't need me no more?

Hi, I'm in the mood for a party too..but unlike you, ints like 6 in the morning in Australia...... I have to go to tutor soon..... what about Mysearchbar? I never installed them... I guess I dont need to use the hotoffersfix

I've deleted their directories yesterday.....they were all in system32....

Thats why today, their icon pictures didn't show up..... but now I've deleted them from my desktop too.....and they're all gone!!

Thanks to you again my saviour...... Dankuwel! :)

Any thing else I have to scan or clean to make sure??

Now you could see my frustration....when you left me last time, I was so close, only had to delete another file, I suspected it was the param32, but I wasn't sure... thats why I was so despereate asking for help from other staff and stuff....... it doesn't matter now.....:)

Thanks a lot again..... for all your help and patience with a not so patient guy like me..... Its been a pleasure working with you... simply the best! I'm glad to know that there's people like you out there to help... this forum is very very useful..... I am the happiest man on Earth.....:)

If you didn't install them, remove them.

Thanks for learning a Dutch thank you (dankjewel).

Do remember next time, do be patient like the rest. I've learned my lesson. No more helping on a PM!

OK, really sorry to cause you all this trouble, as well as PMing....really sorry....and don't get me wrong, I totally understand that the forums are busy and the staff have a lot of work to do...... its just that as you could see, I was very very close, I only had to kill another file...... therefore I was really desperate......and this desperation caused me to panic and increased my greediness.....which obviously isn't right, again I do apologise for my actions...

Should I do scans now with antispyware or do a cleanup with cleanup312?

Well, I've learned my lesson and I have to thank you a million times for your understanding and patience with me...... you could've easily abandoned me for my impatience, but you didn't..... I am really sorry for my PMs...... and I really apologise, please tell that to all other staff....that I am really sorry....

I think this topic can be closed now, and once again, a final dankjewel (Really mean this)..... to my saviour and hero forever.... really appreciate it, and I knew you could do it since the start, you've made my dream for the past 3 nights come true... :tazz:

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware, Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Glad I was able to help.
