The best thing to do would be to use Mozilla Firefox http://www.mozilla.org I've been using this for months and I've had no spyware, I run ad aware and use Ie, and in about a week it's crawling with spyware. GET FIREFOX

alright so I downloaded and ran all four of those programs and I still have a couple of stupid things called Home Search and Extended Search that I can't get rid of in the add/remove program thing and won't leave after running these programs!

Another important thing, especially if you have broadband internet, is the use of a hardware/NAT firewall. It won't help with nastys that install themselves through IE/Firefox, but it will help against virus & popups sent in other ways (Windows Messenger, for example).

I just downloaded ad-aware and it found 49 objects.

I'm not really sure how this works, I took the free version so does this mean i have to do manual updates? Manual scans? and does it work like anti virus and blocks anything that try's to get onto my system? Or do i have to scan like 5 times a day to keep my system cleaned?

Thanks.

I don't think that any spyware scanners will block spyware. Spybot-S&D comes with its "Resident" which watches your registry for changes to startup programs. The best way to keep your system spyware-free is to not use IE, use a firewall, and watch what sites you go to and what you download.

Thanks..I thought this was a program that i needed to keep open at all times.

I have nothing bad to say about IE, This is the first time ever i have had spyware remover on this system (New) and never had it on my old computer (roughly 5 years)..And i have never really had any problems at all.

I just thought i would get spyware remover just to be safe as this is a new system.

Even on my old system i went atleast 2 years without anti virus and just a firewall, Then decided i should get some anti virus..got home scanned the whole system and it was clean

I still keep getting pop-ups. I have wondows xp sp2, ad-aware se, pop-up stopper pro, and adware away. What else do I need? Everytime i place counter-strike, pop-ups keep coming up and i still don't know how to stop them. Is my computer hacked?

You may have some malware running that

a) doesn't get cleared/detected by your anti-spybot stuff
b) is actually a virus. have you downloaded an AV program?

Your only recourse in some cases is to rebuild the computer from scratch.

Also, are you running from behind a firewall? If so - you don't have the DMZ turned on for your computer, do you? Some people do this to make gaming easier...but what it really does is put your computer -- naked, so to speak -- directly out on the net.

Yeah, as Firefox gets more popular, people start working on ways around teh popup blocker.

Using flash to launch a new window seems popular.

I recently had something like this. I had some nasty stuff that kept regenerating "ebates" registry entries. And some program called elitehzd32.exe kept embedding itself in my system process. Ad-Aware, Spybot, and HijackThis were powerless. I had to reformat... the day after reformatting. That was a record for me.

Every 10-15 seconds, an ad would popup. Made games unplayable.

I tried that site, and it was so slow I had to stop. It took 5 minutes to scan 60 files. Maybe I need to try at a different time of day?

wow! nice info! I just wished I would have read this topic a week ago. had to do a factory restore of a pc at the office last week due to the popups and homepage hijacking, even after running adaware, and spybot s&d. thanks for the tips, will definitely come in handy next time...

Hi eveybody,, hope somebody can help me.. lately when surfing around the web and well truthfully around some adult sites, I go to click on a link and it will take me to a different site, but the page url iswww.accessbestpharmacy.com, but the actual website that loads is something different, so that when clinking on links in that site it will always bring up a google search for just random things.. I've used sypot, adaware, hijack this,, but seems to find nothing. Although when i used spybot, it found some www.accessbestpharmacy.com urls, but i delted them.. they never came back but i'm still having the same problem.... anybody else have this??? thanks for the help

(Sigh) After years of being careful, I let my guard down and installed software from a questionable source and now I am greeted daily by some porn pop-up (even while IE and Firefox are closed)

Thanks for this thread... hope I can scrub this one out...

Advice would be appreciated!

my homepage got hijacked a while back and after a frustrating effort to fix it I just deleted the shortcut to IE onthe desktop and drag/dropped the homepage link to Comcast to the desktop where the IE shortcut used to be.

may be a ghetto solution but it works for me...any reason why it's a bad solution ?
the hijacker was this :
es://shdocpl.dll/blank.htm < don't click on this !

this this has come up again and again recently:

Quote:
Download HijackThis and double click on the file for install.
Download CCleaner. Double click on the file for install.
Download Combofix.
Download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri). Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Reboot your computer again 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.

Start HijackThis. Click “Do a system scan only.” and put a checkmark next to the following items (if exists):

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://softwarereferral.com/jump.php...MjI6Ojg5&lid=2
O2 - BHO: PC-Antispyware Site Blocker Button - {10F0C2A9-8E38-43e3-204D-45524C494E20} - C:\Program Files\PC-Antispyware\IeExtension.dll
O2 - BHO: GNX Bingo - {B2DCA34E-9D1C-4EDA-A1BE-C24D1B4AAE55} - C:\WINDOWS\kdftlboepta.dll

O24 - Desktop Component 0: Privacy Protection - file:///C:\WINDOWS\privacy_danger\index.htm

Note: SSODL modules can have random name(blue color) and some different clsid(red color), use google for check them.

Now close all browser and other windows except for HijackThis, and click “Fix Checked” to have HijackThis fix the entries you checked.

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd.
Press the number 2 on your keyboard and the press the enter key to choose the option Clean (safe mode recommended).

You will be prompted : “Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?“; answer “Yes” by typing Y and press “Enter” in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer “Yes” by typing Y and press “Enter”.

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn’t, please restart it into Normal Windows.

Close any open browsers. Double click on combofix.exe and follow the prompts.

Run CCleaner.

Click Analyze button. After scan your system, click Run Cleaner.

If everything seems to be good - pop ups are gone, no any redirects, then you should make a new restore point.Disable system restore to flush out infected restore points. Reboot your computer again. Turn on Windows System Restore. After that click START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > SYSTEM TOOLS > SYSTEM RESTORE. click on “create new restore point” > click on NEXT and follow the prompts.

If you are still having problems with spyware after completing these instructions, maybe you have another version of the infection, then please follow the steps: How to use Spyware Removal Forum.
