Welcome Romes to Geeks to Go!

Please read these instructions carefully. You may want to print them. Copy the text to a Notepad file and save it to your desktop! We will need the file later.
Be sure to follow ALL instructions!


Follow these removal instruction to remove iMesh from your computer (Before proceeding, you should move any documents in iMesh folder that you wish to keep):
  • Click Start
  • Settings
  • Control Panel
  • double-click Add/Remove Programs.
Scroll down the list till you find the iMesh entry.
Then click ‘Remove’ or ‘Change/Remove’.
Follow the on screen instruction to finish the uninstallation automatically.

Open the Program Files directory and delete the iMesh folder along with all the files within it.


Please download noahdfear's smitRem.exe©. Save the file to your desktop. Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.


Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.

The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.On the left hand side of the main screen click update
Click on Start
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
Once the updates are installed, close Ewido for now.


If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, please download and install AdAware SE 1.06.
Check Here on how setup and use it - please make sure you update it first.


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:


Open HijackThis
Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:

O3 - Toolbar: iMeshBar - {5345A7A9-805A-4923-B505-86B2FEBA3FE0} - C:\Program Files\iMeshBar\bar\1.bin\IMESHBAR.DLL (file missing)

Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running.
Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.


Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.
The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed.
Post me the contents of the smitfiles.txt log as you post back.


Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.


Now open Ewido Security Suite:* Click on scanner
* Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
* During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
* When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
* Save the report to your desktop
Reboot your computer.


Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.


Reboot back into Windows
