I have cleaned up my PC, but still have one annoying peice of adware or
sypware called AdtomiAdware. When I run Spybot, it finds this and gets rid of it.
However it still writes itself to the registry everytime I reboot.

Welcome to the forum.

Please download Adtomi Cleanup.zip at the link below:

And follow these instructions.

First If you have a Script Blocking Program enabled, disable it first so the scripts may run.

Unzip it to C:\Windows

See if there is an Adtomi or yahoo stocks icon in your system tray , it might be a red ?? and if so right click and select remove , you must be online for this part

--A web page from Adtomi would appear "-uninstall was succesful!"
then go off line
(note not all infections have this icon, so if it isn't there then don't worry)

next press ctrl+ ALT+DEL once to bring up task manage & stop the running process on the funny named file with 8 assorted letters & numbers, that will be listed towards the bottom of the running process list in your hijackthis log,
and there might also be morze1 running, if so end that process as well
These may be there:
lmqmo.exe, k0zweuu.dll, 5jyb8w.exe /k

if you don't have any starnge named exe files running or you can't stop it running, then DO NOT CONTINUE, please ask for more help first

Now locate and Double Click Cleanup.bat that is in the folder you unzipped ( C:\Windows\Adtomi Cleanup )

***Do not Touch the VBS files. The bat file will run the scripts.

It will remove the Adtomi Spyware files from the Windows Folder
Clean the Startup Folders
Create Backups of the Adtomi exe files it deletes and save them in this folder
Create a list of all oddly named files deleted from the Windows Folder
Uninstall the BHO
Start HijackThis and give you directions on what to remove.

When you have finished please restart the computer.

Run HijackThis again and post the contents of your new log and the contents of Adtomi.txt in your next reply.

I was not able to access the link you sent, however I went to the site,
Computercops, and searched to no avail for Adtomi Cleanup.
you are right there is a line in my task Manager - Imqmo.exe.
Is there anyway I can remove it, or another program that will
clean it.
Thanks again,
