wow u have some major spyware haha but dont worry we can get it off, first please download HijackThis Guide - this is the newer version and tends to pick up more of the nasties, then download a newer version of Ad-aware. - update it and run a full system scan,

after all this please run a free online virus scan here (tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox):
http://housecall.antivirus.com/

And a free trojan scan here:

updated HJT, updated ad-aware to se and did full system scan and deleted all that was found. then went on line to do a virus check @ housecall and it said i was clean....no viruses. then checked for trojans with the 'cleaner'. it said i had no trojans either. i then followed up with a new HJT and here are the results.....

  • Use Custom Scanning Options

-> When finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose Select All from the drop down menu and click Next).


Please delete your temporary files. Double Click My Computer (WinXP: Navigate to Start --->My Computer)
You will see an icon representing your harddrive (most likely C: Drive) Right Click on the hard drive icon and click Properties at the
bottom of the fly out window. One the very first tab (General) you will see a button labeled "Disk Cleanup"...click that button.
Make sure the following are checked:

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D

Once it's installed, you're good to go. Just make sure you update it every few days and make sure you click enabled for all sites. I was confused about it at first too. I thought I had to enable it every time, but I didn't.

Did you have trouble running Roxio?

"thatman - Geek In Training" - pointed out that Roxio has not been removed fully-it's not in the running processes.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RoxioEngineUtility] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\System\EngUtil.exe"
Part of Roxio EasyCD Creator 6.0 EngUtil.exe

He pointed out that there is an update on the Roxio site if you want to run it.
