Hello and welcome to GeeksToGo Forums. We hope you enjoy your stay here! :tazz:

We apologize for the delay in response. The forums have been very busy lately.

You may want to print out these instructions or save them to your desktop as a text file with Notepad because we will be restarting into Safe Mode later on in the fix and you might not be able to access the Internet.

Your log indicates that you have chosen to install Messenger Plus! 3. During installation, Messenger Plus! 3 will ask you to install the sponsor software LOP/C2Media. This "sponsor software" is in fact malware itself. For more information see this link:

http://inetexplorer....senger_plus.htm

I suggest you uninstall Messenger Plus! 3 as it seems to be the best method for removing the pesky malware. Once we have determined that your log is clean, you can reinstall it without the sponsor software.

Your log shows that you are running HijackThis from a temporary directory.
You need to move HijackThis to a permanent directory so that backups will not be accidentally deleted.
  • Double-click the My Computer icon on the desktop.
  • Click Local Disk C:.
  • File | New | Folder
  • A new folder called New Folder will be created.
  • Rename New Folder to HJT or HijackThis.
  • Download a new copy of HijackThis and save it to the new folder you just created.
  • NOTE: If you want a shortcut on your desktop, just right-click on HijackThis.exe and select Send To > Desktop (create shortcut).
  • To rename the shortcut right-click on it and click Rename. Type the name you want and press Enter.
Place a checkmark next to these entries, close all browsers and windows, and have HijackThis fix them by clicking Fix Checked:

Reconfigure Windows XP to show hidden files:
Click Start. Open My Computer.
Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options. Select the View Tab.

Under the Hidden files and folders heading select "Show hidden files and folders".
Uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" option.
Uncheck the "Hide file extensions for known file types" option.
Click Yes to confirm. Click OK.

Boot into Safe Mode:
Restart your computer and immediately begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard.
If done right a Windows Advanced Options menu will appear. Select the Safe Mode option and press Enter.
To return to normal mode just restart your computer as you normally would.

Please remove these entries from Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel(if present):

Messenger Plus! 3
P2P Networking
Rebate Nation

Please delete these folders using Windows Explorer(if present):

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Eggs four proxy idol
C:\Program Files\couponsandoffers
C:\Program Files\Messenger Plus! 3
C:\Program Files\Rebate_Nation
C:\WINDOWS\System32\P2P Networking

Please delete these files using Windows Explorer(if present):

C:\WINDOWS\farmmext.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\euooti.exe

Now you can restart the computer normally.
Please run HijackThis again and post a fresh log, just so I can make sure that all the malware was deleted according to plan. ;)
