Hi there, yo geeks,
Hope u'd accept an enthusiast amongst you.
Whenever I open my IE6.0 browser I'm redirected to SSearch.biz and a popup advt comes about casino,models,PC infected download s/w.

I have downloaded, installed and used
:-Spybot S&d
:-Killbox
:-Adware Away
:-Ad-Aware SE Personal

but to no use.
Win XP - OS,
To be safe I've started using Mozilla Firefox

P.S.- This happened while surfing u know what ?
;)

Thanks

Please Click here!, and follow the recommendations in the guide.

If you're still having trouble, We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and reply here with your log.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Hi there,
I am still having problems, I've done everything which is listed in Malaware Removal- Hijack this log, and have even posted the Hijack this log.
Now my ewido security suite's evaluation period has expired and I don't have realtime protection.Methinks, this spyware has written itself in the startup program so I have to remove and use all the spyware removal tools,s/w everytime I reboot and work on the computer.
The spyware is :-
Hiacker.Alo.100, Spyware.Coolwebsearch,Adware,Spyware.Hijacker.Generic

I'm still getting the irritating pop-ups, once when I was surfing the net and forgot to remove the spyware my browser Firefox was hijacked, fortunately I closed it in time
:tazz: me please.

Hi there,
I can't delete the Spyware.CoolWebSearch, Network-Essentials.exe,SC Agent Trojan.
On running the Ad-Aware SE Personal, I get 20-22 variants of CoolWebSearch.
These programs are installing themselves again after deletion not on rebooting but on connecting to the web.
Please,
;) :tazz:
me.
Thanks
