Please help me! I am very computer illiterate and I can't figure out how to make the popups stop! I have done everything that it said to before reporting problems about spyware/malware, but they're still coming back. My computer isn't overloaded with them, but it used to work perfectly, and these popups are so frustrating! I would appreciate ANY help you can give me more than you know!!

Here is my HijackThis log:

Welcome to GTG.

Please print out the instructions here (or save it in Notepad) so that you can follow along more easily.

Download Ewido Security Suite at http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ and install it. Update to the newest definitions. Do NOT run it yet.

Please download nailfix at http://users.pandora...chy/nailfix.zip (for Windows XP) or http://users.pandora...y/nailfix2k.zip (for Windows 2000) Unzip it to the desktop but do NOT run it yet.

Reboot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work.

Once in Safe Mode, please double-click on nailfix.cmd (or nailfix2k.bat if you have Windows 2000). Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

Next run a full scan in Ewido. Post the log from the Ewido scan here.

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {02EE5B04-F144-47BB-83FB-A60BD91B74A9} - C:\Program Files\SurfSideKick 3\SskBho.dll
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {DCCC4EC7-8233-4630-8EE8-FC5CF9651F91} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\kogb.dll (file missing)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Yahoo Messenger] NETSTATT.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ViewMgr] C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Viewpoint Manager\ViewMgr.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Unshare] C:\Program Files\safe-share\SafeShare.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sexp] C:\WINDOWS\System32\sexp.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SurfSideKick 3] C:\Program Files\SurfSideKick 3\Ssk.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [SurfSideKick 3] C:\Program Files\SurfSideKick 3\Ssk.exe
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://www.neededware.com


Close all open windows except for HijackThis and click Fix Checked.

Uninstall these in Add/Remove Panel:

SafeShare
Viewpoint
SurfSideKick


Delete these if found:

C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\
C:\Program Files\safe-share\
C:\WINDOWS\System32\kogb.dll (file missing)
NETSTATT.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\System32\sexp.exe
C:\Program Files\SurfSideKick 3\


Restart your computer in normal mode and post a new HijackThis log, as well as the log from the Ewido scan.

Download FindIt's.zip to your desktop: http://forums.net-in...=post&id=142443

1. Unzip/extract the files inside to a folder on your desktop.
2. Open the folder. Double click on FindIt's.bat and wait for Notepad to open a text file. It will take a while so please be patient ...
3. Then post the results here.

Great job :tazz:

Your log is clean.

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer and uncheck the same box to enable System Restore.

Make sure to get the latest updates for Windows and Internet Explorer at http://v5.windowsupd...t.aspx?ln=en-us.

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided.

Are there any problems now? If not, you should be set to go.
