I had a feeling something just wasn't right after my last "succesful cleansing" at this site, which is why I posted this: http://www.geekstogo...topic=98936&hl=

BUT ... before you delete me for doing duplicate posts, I have another pop upping problem. A "File download" from "ad.yieldmanager.com" keeps popping up and telling me to download iframe3.

And popunder popups keep arising, on top of my computer booting abnormally (like 12 minutes worth of abnormality) slow.

Please help!!

Hi withakay,

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

O16 - DPF: {4AD73894-A895-4FC2-B233-299867E08753} (Cadwkzctl Object) - http://apps.deskwizz.../ax/adwerkz.cab

O20 - Winlogon Notify: WRNotifier - WRLogonNTF.dll (file missing)

Then download and install SpywareBlaster from:
http://www.javacools...areblaster.html

And follow the instructions here:
http://www.mvps.org/...p2002/hosts.htm
to implement the hosts file that is available there as well.

Reboot and post a new HijackThis log.

What exactly is the HOST? It makes me a little nervous about downloading, because after reading the page, I'm still not sure I understand.

I downloaded Spysweeeper and enabled it - the reboot is still 8+ minutes long. It used to be maybe 50 seconds, total. Now, its just a black screen with a flashing gray _ . :-/

BTW, thanks so much for helping me out here.

The hosts file is not that hard to do

Download and unzip:
http://www.mvps.org/...p2002/hosts.zip

Save the unzipped file in this folder:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC

That is all. By being in the proper place it will do it's job.

You mentioned SpySweeper instead of SpywareBlaster??

And in the log you posted there is aninstall in progress.

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

O3 - Toolbar: File Print FedEx Kinko's - {9566395f-43d2-4c64-b525-b501ffa276e2} - mscoree.dll (file missing)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [iTunesHelper] C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunesHelper.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MimBoot] C:\PROGRA~1\MUSICM~1\MUSICM~1\mimboot.exe

O4 - Global Startup: Adobe Gamma Loader.lnk = C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Calibration\Adobe Gamma Loader.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Adobe Reader Speed Launch.lnk = Acrobat 7.0\Reader\reader_sl.exe

Then reboot and post a new log.

Let's check if the computer is clean enough to update to SP2


Download WinPFind.zip and unzip the contents to the C:\ folder.

Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the boot menu appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.
  • Press the Enter key.
Locate the c:\winpfind\winpfind.exe file and double-click it to run it. Now click the Start Scan button to begin the scan.

When the scan is complete reboot normally and post the WinPFind.txt file (located in the WinPFind folder)

Hi, Ill have to do this when I return in a few hours.

But just a sidenote, I was always told that since I have Optimum Online and a Dell, for some reason the SP2 will muff up computer. I've read online about these experiences going weary. Have you heard anything?

Thanks again, Ill be back in a few hours to see your reply. :tazz:

A lot of things have changed since SP2 came out.

And doing the upgrade will replace a lot of damaged/missing system files with newer versions.
Which may help greatly in resolving your problem.

But ultimately it is ofcourse your choice.
If you think it can get worse......
