Hi, I have worked for a week relentlessly trying to remove this popup from my computer. I have downloaded every application mentioned on this forum, to include SBSD, AA SE, HJT, The Cleaner, BugOff, CWS shredder, DSO Exploit fix for spybot, bholist, itty bitty Proc Man, startup list and all the newest updates.

No matter what I do and have tried, this popup will not stop!! I have NEVER been unable to remove a popup problem, but this one has me baffled. I have no other issues except the 'George Bush Idiot' Google Search Popup Window. It is being caused (I think by PAVWAIT.DLL) and no matter what I do it comes back over and over and over.

Any suggestions? I followed the instructions for App_init correction, scanned, cleaned, rebooted and STILL HAVE IT!!! :mad:

You can leave PAVWAIT.DLL alone. It belongs to Panda.

Check the following items in HijackThis.
Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://red.clientapp...rch/search.html
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://red.clientapp...//www.yahoo.com

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://red.clientapp...//www.yahoo.com

O21 - SSODL: SystemCheck2 - {54645654-2225-4455-44A1-9F4543D34545} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\vbsys2.dll

Then reboot and run CWShredder (version 2.1 or newer)

Let me know if that does it.

Regards,

Pieter
