:tazz: Sad, very sad! Good thing I didn't get my hopes too high...I ran SpywareDr., Spybot, etc. All clean. Then I ran MWav (the one you had me download). Bad news...Bearshare and Unknowntoolbar. Also ran CWshredder and it found CWS (that was able to be removed. The pop-ups continue, but in general the computer seems better. Still get knocked offline and have program crashes. Never used to.
Now what....thanks

Hi! Forgot to mention...I also ran WinPFind and it produced something called patterns.txt. It was quite a long list...Is it something you would want to look at. Last time it only showed the winpfind.txt. This time there was a pattern list too.
thanks

Something is very, very wrong. I just ran Panda Activescan and it found BargainBuddy. Won't remove - so I need help, but this is new stuff. Wasn't here the other day. Not only can I not fix computer...it is getting more diseases. Don't get it. I run IMSecure Pro, Zone Alarm, AVG. I regularly scan with Lavasoft and Spybot and every single day I run Ccleaner to remove history and temp files. What's going on :tazz:

I have some good news - Finally! I realized that Comcast now offers a McAfee Spyware scan and removal. I just began a scan and would not believe what it found and removed. After just a partial run. Am going to let it finish and then do all the other checks over again. Will keep you posted! :tazz:
Thanks

Are all BackWeb and BackWeblite programs "bad". I have Kodak on the computer and it is recommending that I delete. Are all of these that auto update dangerous? Can you keep the Software but disable the "backweb" portion?? :tazz:
thanks again

This is how they define Backweb:

backWeb.exe is an adware by Backweb Technologies which offers news and entertainment services in exchange for personal usage information regarding the PC being sent back to BackWeb's servers for analysis. Many high range computer manufactorers have entered into an agreement with backweb to install this product by default on work-stations in exchange for other services from the backweb application. This program is a registered security risk and should be removed immediately. Please see additional details regarding this process

I am unsure if you can disable just that without affecting a program. Might want to try some trial and error.

Hi! Obviously my AVG (Freeware) was not catching everything. I just began the McAfee virus scan (It finished the spyware scan and found and removed a ton of items). The McAfee anti-virus is a special offer through my Comcast. It has found Reg/Seeker Trojan and has removed a bunch of files. Still scanning. Will let you know how things progress. :tazz:

I believe it may finally be fixed! I ran the new McAfee Spyscan and virus program. Spyware came back clean. Virus check still running. Ran other virus checks and it seemed clean. Running quicker, no popups, so far. Removed AVG free and Zone Alarm free version. Am going to use the McAfee for now.
Bootup time still seems too slow...any suggestions??!! or should I just be happy?!
Thanks for everything. I went ahead and removed webshots and weatherbug just to be extra safe. :tazz:

You can fix this in HJT

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE

That will help a little bit on boot up. I would imagine that the McAfee is slowing you down more than the AVG would.

I am still crossing my fingers!!

Thanks. How do you feel about the McAfee as compared to AVG. It was a knee jerk reaction to remove the AVG, since I had so many problems all of a sudden. I had liked AVG and had recommended it to lots of people I know. What do you think?
Thanks again for everything. :tazz:
