Nope, all are legit.

Using Uninstall Manager
  • Double click on HijackThis.exe to run it.
  • Go to Config || Misc Tools
  • click the button labelled "Open Uninstall Manager"
  • For stubborn add/remove entries, select the entry that wont go away, and click "Delete This Entry"
  • Then click the "refresh" button and look to make sure it hasnt come back. You may need to do this a couple times.

I did that once and I was able to get rid of the best offers program. Thanks! Should I continue with these instructions which were posted in an earlier message:

1. System Restore
Now that we know your system is clean, we want to purge any potentially infected restore points. To do that, complete the following:

Turn off System Restore by Clicking Start > right-click My Computer and then click Properties. Click the System Restore tab > Check "Turn off System Restore" or "Turn off System Restore on all drives". Click Apply. When turning off System Restore, the existing restore points will be deleted. Click Yes to do this. Click OK.

To re-enable this function - simply uncheck this same box, and click "apply" and "ok"


2. Reset Hidden Files & Folders
Go to My Computer >Tools >Folder Options >View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is UNchecked. Also make sure that the System Files and Folders are invisible. CHECK the Hide protected operating system files option.

Also Consider...
SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.

SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.

IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:
Sygate Personal Firewall

Kerio Personal Firewall

ZoneAlarm

Thank you for all your help and quick responses. I really appreciate all that you've done. I have set all the settings back to normal and will be downloading spyware blaster and zonealarm. one last question, if i'm using norton antivirus and it has the personal firewall, should i still download zonealarm?
