I just got this thing last night. Ad-Aware detected and removed it (or so I thought) before but it came back right away. Here's a Hijack This log:

Hi Firebert and welcome to the Geeks to Go Forums.

My name is Trevuren and I will be helping you with your log.

1. If you haven't logged in go to Geeks to Go and do so. Then proceed to item a.

If you already have logged in, go directly to item a.
  • Click on My Controls at the top right hand corner of the window.
  • In the left hand column, click "View Topics"
  • If you click on the title of your post, you will be taken there
2. Also, while at the My Controls page, check the box to the right of your post and then scroll down.
.Where it says "unsubscribe" click the pull-down menu and select "immediate email notification"

3. Please DELETE your current HJT program from its present location.

4. Download and run the following HijackThis autoinstall program from Here . Please choose the default location of C:\Program Files\ as the destination. HJT needs to be in its own folder so that the program itself isn't deleted by accident. Having the backups could be VITAL to restoring your system if something went wrong in the FIX process!
  • Run HijackThis
  • Click SCAN and SAVE LOG. (a notepad window will open with the log in it when you click Save Log) (Ctrl-A to'select all', Ctrl-C to 'copy')
  • POST the log into this thread using 'Add Reply' (Ctrl-V to 'paste')

DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL WE CHECK THE LOG, AS MOST OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO THE FUNCTION OF YOUR COMPUTER


Regards,

Trevuren

A few things:

I don't want to uninstall winamp because I've been listening to my music with that program for years now without any trouble whatsoever (I like it more than windows media player). I'm not sure, but I also think that scanreg thing was installed the last time I had my computer infected with malware, but I'll remove that if you think otherwise.

I'm running Windows ME, not XP, so Ewido won't install on my computer. Also, as I said before, I have Ad-Aware SE 1.06 and I updated the definitions before I ran it before I came here for help.

Is there anything I should do differently or should I just skip the step with Ewido?

1. I didn't ask you to remove "Winamp" only 1 file "winampa"

2. Forgot that Ewido doesn't run on ME, Sorry

3. Do the rest of the fix written.
