Might not be a bad idea to uninstall Yahoo!\Companion
Then run a scan, Make sure everything is fine and then if you want you can reinstall it,


Do the above first, Make sure the system is clean then check on the mail, this way we can elimate it now

I uninstalled the yahoo companion and rebooted. Then ran Panda Activescan and that .dll file still showed up. Apparently it was not removed with the uninstall. Should I just delete it? I won't reinstall Companion. It was there from the original compaq stuff that came with the computer. Haven't run the email yet. Norton came up in the non- autoprotect mode again.



Incident Status Location

Adware:Adware/Yahoo No disinfected C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Companion\ycomp5_0_2_7.dll

Thanks.

I deleted the yahoo companion dll. Checked the email and the junk was still piling in. It's coming from 12green.com and fleagroups.com. I installed filters in outlook so messages from those domains go directly into the deleted folder.

Should I update Norton anti-virus now?

Thanks.

Yes update Nortons.

Also
  • Download FindIt's.zip to your desktop: http://forums.net-in...=post&id=142443
  • Unzip/extract the files inside to a folder on your desktop.
  • Open the folder and run FindIt's.bat and wait for notepad to open a text file. It will take awhile so please be patient ...
  • Then post the results here please, along with the new HijackThis log.

Hi agaib John,
A few more things reared their heads,

*Please open notepad and save these instructions, Name it something you will remember
*Click Here to download Killbox by Option^Explicit.
*Extract the program to your desktop and double-click on its folder, then double-click on Killbox.exe to start the program.
*In the killbox program, select the Delete on Reboot option.
*Open the text file with these instructions in it, and copy the file names below to the clipboard by highlighting them and pressing Control-C:

C:\WINDOWS\RMAGEN~1.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\system32\gblogo.ico
C:\WINDOWS\system32\killevidence2.ico
C:\WINDOWS\system32\killxppopups3.ico
C:\WINDOWS\system32\kxp-28x28.ico
C:\WINDOWS\system32\spaidicon16.ico
C:\WINDOWS\system32\spaidicon32.ico
C:\WINDOWS\system32\vhicon.ico

*Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".
*Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.

After restart open Findits again please and post back a fresh log from it please

OK, finally got back to the Norton issue. I installed nav2005 and it worked ok but the old systemworks did not. So I had to get a new systemworks, now everything is working. I think we are probably done now.

I think I will install spywareblaster and uninstall Webroot Spy Sweeper and then install firefox.

Is there anything else I should be doing here? Thanks for all of the help. I'll be starting another project on my neighbors machine although I may just reformat the drive and start over on his. There is nothing on there that he wants to save. Sometimes it's a lot easier to just reinstall the OS.

Great news John

I think I will install spywareblaster and uninstall Webroot Spy Sweeper and then install firefox.

Is there anything else I should be doing here?


Well you have all the instructions I gave you on your computer correct, Make sure Ad-aware, spybot updated and run weekly, same with Anti Virus and windows updates,

Yes you can uninstall spy sweeper and use spyware blaster,



I'll be starting another project on my neighbors machine although I may just reformat the drive and start over on his. There is nothing on there that he wants to save. Sometimes it's a lot easier to just reinstall the OS.


Just be careful if it is infested with Viral and malware sometimes just a reformat is not going to do the trick, Want to make sure you get it cleaned up


Your very welcome!

Thanks for the additional info. I did the Windows Updates and installed SP2. It has a lot of stuff that is annoying, but it's probably for the best. I think the email is under control now by using the junk mail filters.

Thanks again for all of the help. I'm not sure when I'll be working on the other machine, but hopefully I can work with you on that one too.
