Hellooooooooooooooo

OK, Spybot keeps picking up the followong problems and saying it is getting rid of them but they always come straight back. I have reinstalled windows (as there were more problems, most of which are gone, but these won't go.
I have tried other programms too but nothing is working.

They are:

AdRevolver
DoubleClick
MediaPlex
Right Media
Tradedoubler
Web Trends Live

Any ideas?

Hello The_Steve-o, Welcome to Geeks-To-Go.

My name is GravityGripp and I'll be working with you on these issues. The first thing that I would like you to do is provide me with a HiJackThis log.

STEP ONE

Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
  • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • 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 Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Also, please note that I am still in training so there may be a slight delay in my responses because I will be working with an expert on this.

I look forward to working with you :)

The_Steve-o, I don't really see anything in this log to indicate an issue. Let's try digging a little deeper.


STEP ONE
Please download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) and save it to your Desktop.
  • Close all other windows before proceeding.
  • Double-click on dss.exe and follow the prompts.
  • When it has finished, dss will open two Notepads main.txt and extra.txt -- please copy (CTRL+A and then CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) the contents of main.txt and extra.txt in your next reply.
