Please help. I have followed all recommendations: Spybot, AdAware, MS AntiSpyware, MS Windows Update. I have run them all numerous times (except Update), and re-booted each time. I continue to get regular pop-ups and the "Search the Web" toolbar pop-up. Every time I run AntiSpyware I discover "iSearch" and "ShopatHome". AdAware keeps discovering Sah Agent. AntiSpyware blocks "pinmdlg.exe" and "Apropos Media" every so often. When I re-boot, "hpdll.exe" has to be shut down manually at times.
Thanks in advance!!
Dave

Hi la2jax

You've certainly got some problems. Please disable System Restore. Right click the My Computer icon on the Desktop > Properties > System Restore tab. Put a tick in the box "Turn off System Restore on all drives". You can re-enable it when the system is cleaned up.

Right click the Microsoft Antispyware icon in the system tray and exit/shutdown the monitoring program. It will restart when you reboot later on. Real time monitoring programs can interfere with the removal process.

Download CWShredder from here http://www.geekstogo...action=cat&id=3 Don't use it yet.

Download and install the trial version of The Cleaner and updates from here http://www.moosoft.com Don't use it yet.

You may need to print this out or copy and paste into a Notepad file so you can keep track of the deletions when you are not connected to the internet and when working in Safe Mode.

Open HijackThis and click on "Open Misc Tools Section" and "Open Process Manager"

Find this process in the list, select it and click on "Kill Process". Read the name very carefully as there may be some names that are similar but that are genuine files.

apvdlkzp.exe
hpdll.exe
desktop.exe
vmss.exe
gah95on6.exe
sysmonnt.exe bad
eetu.exe
AutoUpdate.exe
gahimg.exe
gpkvoica.exe
CxtPls.exe


Then click on Back which will open the HijackThis Scan Screen. Click on Scan. When the scan is complete check all the following items. Then disconnect from the internet and close all open windows including this browser window and all instant messaging - Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger, ICQ and anything else that is not essential and click on Fix checked.

Open Notepad, and copy the lines in red into a new text file. Go to File> Save As > Call it FindFile.bat. Save it to your Desktop.


dir C:\WINDOWS\System32\l?a**.exe /a h > files.txt
notepad files.txt


Double click the FindFile.bat on your Desktop. It will open Notepad with some text in it. Please copy and paste all the text in your next post.

Do an online Virus scan here http://housecall.trendmicro.com Let it fix anything it finds and reboot if required.

Do a full scan with The Cleaner. Let it fix anything it finds and reboot if required.

Do a new HijackThis log and post it AND the text from Findfile.bat so we can check it.

Hi la2jax

Just a couple of things left.

Open Hijack and Do System Scan only. Check the following items. Then disconnect from the internet and close all open windows including this browser window and all instant messaging - Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger, ICQ and anything else that is not essential and click on Fix checked.

ffisearch.exe


Reboot into Safe Mode by continually tapping the F8 key as soon as the computer starts to boot up - after the beep. When the Windows XP Safe Mode menu comes up - Choose Safe Mode. You don't need any networking. You should still have all your settings in windows explorer as before.

Delete this folder
C:\WINDOWS\isrvs Delete this folder

Reboot into normal mode and do a new HijackThis log for a check.

Sometimes simple things will solve the problem rather than diagnosing things in detail. As for this gah95on6 problem, first thing to do is to have a peep at the regular Add/Remove programs. If anything unrelated to our operation, business, should be deleted. For example, I have found a program called ShopAtHome which was throwing lot of critical objects at AdAware scans and probably the gah95on6.exe when it was removed with some password it provides, the file was not loaded in memory the critical objects number drastically went down.

Secondly if anything is in C:\temp folder we have to peep and remove.

Interesting thing is the only programme the above adware affected was FREECELL game which was creating problem. But once gah95on6 was removed FREECELL started working fine.

So we may look out for available simple solutions first
