Hi,

I am normally very careful, but I've picked up Offer Optimizer. Can someone help me get this off my machine?

Here is my HiJackThis log:

Hello ZenBlues and welcome to Geeks to Go

As an introduction, please note that I am not Superhuman, I do not know everything, but what I do know has taken me years to learn. I am happy to pass on this information to you, but please bear in mind that I am also fallible.

Please note that you should have Administrator rights to perform the fixes. Also note that multiple identity PC’s (family PC’s) present a different problem; please tell me if your PC has more than one individual’s setting.

Before we get underway, you may wish to print these instructions for easy reference during the fix, although please be aware that many of the required URLs are hyperlinks in the red names shown on your screen. Part of the fix may require you to be in Safe Mode, which will not allow you to access the internet, or my instructions!

To start please download the following programme/s, we will run it/them later. Please save it/them to a place that you will remember, I suggest the Desktop:
CCleaner
Ewido Security Suite

Install Ewido Security Suite.
  • Install Ewido security suite
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck..
    • Install background guard
    • Install scan via context menu
    • You will need to update Ewido to the latest definition files.
    • On the left hand side of the main screen click update.
    • Then click on Start Update.
  • The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
    (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful")
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update Ewido.
Ewido manual updates
Do NOT run a scan yet.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site:

Safe Mode

Launch Ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop, double-click it.
  • The programme will now open to the main screen.
  • When you run Ewido for the first time, you will get a warning "Database could not be found!". Click OK. We will fix this in a moment.
Now that the updates have been installed do the following:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • NOTE: During some scans with Ewido it is finding cases of false positives.
    • You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
    • If Ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
    • DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
    • If you are unsure of any entry found select none for now.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop and include it in your reply.
Now close Ewido security suite.

Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
O1 - Hosts: 64.91.255.87 www.dcsresearch.com
O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler.exe

Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked.

Please delete this file (if present) using Windows Explorer:

Scheduler.exeuse search to find this file

Close Windows Explorer and Reboot normally

Now we must hide the files we revealed earlier by reversing the process, this is an important safeguard to stop important system files being deleted by accident.

There is almost certainly bound to be some junk (leftover bits and pieces) on your system that is doing nothing but taking up space. I would recommend that you run CCleaner. Install it, update it, check the default setting in the left-hand pane, Analyze, Run Cleaner. You may be fairly surprised by how much it finds. Also click Issues then Scan for issues – fix selected issues

Post back a fresh HijackThis log and I will take another look.

I am still showing Offer Optimizer in Add/Remove Programs. When I click to remove it I am re-directed to a web site link called 'click here for removal tool. Here is the url:

http://buckstoolbar....rOptimizer.html

BTW, I am not on a network and, yes I am the admin for this computer.

Thanks for your help!

Hello again

Your HJT log is clean.

This programme is difficult to delete in conventional ways.

Please try to delete it via HijackThis:Open HijackThis
Click 'Open the Misc Tool section'
Click 'Open Uninstall Manager
Find the programme and choose 'Delete this entry'
Then reboot your computer and tell me if it works

1.JPG I used HJT to remove Offer Optimizer from the Add/Remove program list, but I think it is still on my machine. I am a gamer, and always close any programs I don't need when I game. I know exactly how many programs should be open after shutting down those I do not need: 11.

I have 12 open, and I do not recognize the svchost.exe highlited in the attached screenshot.

I am leaving now and will not be able to respond for the next 10 hours or so.

Again, many thanks for your help!

There's only one way to find out, end the process and if a window opens and the clock counts down then it is legit. If nothing happens then you got it right.

I am unclear by what you mean when you say "...end the process and if a window opens and the clock counts down then it is legit. If nothing happens then you got it right..."

I was able to end the process and nothing happened. But isn't this program still on my computer? If, when I boot up, I see it in the Task Manager as a process running, doesn't that mean it is still on my computer? And if so how do I rid myself of it?

I want to say how much I appreciate your help. This is the second time I have received this kind of top-rate attention from Geeks To Go, and there will be a PayPal donation forthcoming.

But first I want this nasty little [bleep] removed from my computer! :tazz:

Please understand that I cannot have the same knowledge of your PC as you obviously do, but before we can remove anything we have to identify it. We have now done that part. Now we have to go hunting.

Go to START>RUN type in MSCONFIG and hit ENTER>STARTUP. It is very likely that one of those is your rogue file, which you may easily identify and remove. However, if it is not obvious which it is, please continue with this.

Create a Startup List
  • Open HiJackThis
  • Click on the "Config..." button on the bottom right
  • Click on the tab "Misc Tools"
  • Check off the 2 boxes next to the Box that says "Generate StartupList log"
  • Click on the button "Generate StartupList log"
  • Copy and past the StartupList from the notepad into your next post
Please download and run Silent Runners

* Please right click this link and choose save (link) as to download:Silent Runners.
* Save it to the desktop.
* Run Silent Runner's by doubleclicking the "Silent Runners" icon on your desktop.
* You will see a text file appear on the desktop - it's not done yet, just let it run (it won't appear to be doing anything!)
* Once you receive the prompt "All Done!", double-click on the new text file on the desktop and copy that entire log and paste it here.

*NOTE* If you receive any warning message about scripts, please choose to allow the script to run.

Hello again

Both of those logs are negative. Do you still see the rogue entry in TaskManager?

Yes, I do.

I have done numerous virus scans; Symantec, McAffe, Panda, Trend Micro... all come up negative.

Yet there is a new process that boots up each time I start the computer.

You can alsouse Windows Explorer and search for "optimize.exe" and delete any instances you find - it could be in a folder of it's own, a copy in the System32 folder, in the C: (root/boot) drive, etc..

if you find a copy in a folder named "Optimize", "Optimizer", "Offer Optimizer", etc. -
delete the whole folder.

From the run dialogue box type services.msc and hit enter

check through the list of running Services" to see if something "questionable" is running as a "Service", but I would expect to see that in HJT

Nothing bad in your Start-ups. BTW the third one, UPDREG is unnecessary, its just a reminder for you to register at Creative Labs.
