It didn't remove the virus from my hard drive but I now have the homepage that I used to have. Whatever works. Visit http://csonweb.uni.cc/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1 for removal technique. This Trojan actually infects the registry by periodically adding a couple of subkeys (if they have been removed manually or by spyware) to HKCU\Software\Internet Explorer\Search (which is probably also added by it). Even if you disinfect it, the Trojan writes the keys again!!! I also got this malicious issue. Probably there are many ways to fix it and it seems it can corrupt different dlls. In my case it had added mxtarget.dll to c:\windows (on Windows XP). Tried a lot of things but the simple way out was to use System Restore option from Start/Program Files/Accessories/Security. This will work as by default XP maintains system checkpoints log to which the system can be rolled back to. Its easy and does not affect your data. Make sure to select a date before the date of infection. After becoming clean, make sure to set your browser security to at least medium to avoid activex scripts from getting executed without ur knowledge. You can remove this virus from your computer by following these steps. 1 Download and intall the Malwarebytes on your computer . 2 Update your Malwarebytes . 3 Scan your computer for all the malwares in your computer . 4 Remove all the malwares , found while scanning with the malwarebytes . 5 Restart your computer .

How can you get rid of Ad-serve blank popups?

User Avatar
Pop Up Ads make it hard for a user to browse Internet as well as create backdoors for many other virus and malicious links to enter into your PC. So, it is important to remove this infection as soon as possible. All that you need to do is perform a system restore and uninstall everything which you have installed recently. Remove the junks and unused items. Clean registries as malicious infections hide themselves in the complicated file codes. Remove any kind of pre-installed extension on your browser. Lastly perform complete scanning of your computer with some reputed virus/malware protection tool like Norton, Immunet 3.0, Kaspersky, Avast, Avira, Comodo etc.

How do you get rid of a virus that pops up websites?

Well first of all you want to do three things. install Zonealarm. Zonealarm is free software that controls programs access of the internet and the access of your computer to other computers. This will interfere with the viruses ability to comunicate with its creator or a.k.a. author. The next step is to install system mechanic which is made by iolo.com. Once you've have done this enable the pop up blocker. I personally can attest that it works. In one and a half weeks it block 1500 pop ups. You can even add titles of pop ups you want blocked. Then try scanning your computer with system mechanic to see if your virus is really spyware, adware or another parasite. Then, go to trendmicro.com and run housecall. Housecall will scan everything on your computer and search for active malware. You might need to install the lastest version of Java. But don't worry about this know because housecall will give you an error message if this is so. good luck You need to run these 5 essential steps to remove all the spyware on your computer. 1.

How do you get rid of an internet file that pops up everytime you log on?

User Avatar
Check in Start -> Program Files -> Startup . Make sure that there is no internet file in there. If there is one, delete it or move it away from that folder. If that does not solve the problem. Download Spybot Search and Destroy from safer-networking.org and run the search. Use this software to remove all the spyware that might have caused the problem. If that still does not help then, go to Start -> Run... -> type in "msconfig" . Move to Startup tab and carefully scroll through the list. There should be one suspicious program that you don't know. Simply uncheck that box next to that program and next time you start your computer, it will not be loaded. Note: The final step should be carefully done or you might disable some features that you need. MSconfig is the manual way of deleting cached internet files but it is risky so only disable one at a time and try it. Most likely you downloaded some form of adware, or spyware either by temporary internet files, active x, or just plain shareware, etc. their are some very good programs designed to prevent these startup windows from executing upon boot up like. Microsoft anti spyware, which is a free beta on Microsoft's site. Spybot search and destroy is a through software also Hijack this, prevents the bad files from communicating with the host server lavasofts ad aware, is a top notch program that also defends against spyware and unwanted ads Also you could try cleaning out your temporary internet files via IE tools/ internet options/ temp internet files; clear files Before cleaning your stysem make sure to set up a system restore point in case any important files are deleted like reg files or .dll files e Go on startup programs and unchecked the invalid entry by the name of pop up coming. if it is still coming. it may be a spy ware/adware.to remove this pop up, scan your system to anti spyware.

I've setup a step-by-step Bazooka Adware and Spyware Scanner removal plan for you so you can conduct the removal as soon as possible. Locate and remove Bazooka Adware and Spyware Scanner by deleting the related files, a trained software professional would better do this job. Eliminate the registry entries if you can. Delete connected directions. By doing a quick search via the Internet, you can find out what files and registry entries need to be deleted. But this removal is only recommended for computer experts, for deleting the wrong file or registry key may render Windows unbootable.
