    My computer stalls and then I get about 30 popups telling me that 180 search assistant needs to be reinstalled. I've tried uninstalling this program without success. I recently found suggests from various places on the web, but they all suggest something different. If someone could help me figure out how to get rid of this, I would appreciate it. I'm at the point now where I'm tempted to give in and just install the software so I don't keep getting the popups. I've cut and pasted the suggestions that I gathered below, along with my hijack log. Thanks very much.

    Suggestions from various places on web:

    1) You may uninstall via the Add/Remove Programs in the Start Menu

    Go to Start Menu
    Under Settings select Control Panel
    Select Add or Remove Programs
    Click on Uninstall 180search Assistant
    (If you are running an older version of our software, this will be named PAD Lookups by N-Case)
    Select Remove and follow instructions until prompted with "You have successfully uninstalled 180search Assistant"

    2) Can I uninstall 180search Assistant?

    Yes you can uninstall 180search Assistant at any time. However, 180search Assistant makes money for our sponsored online publishers by showing you websites, offers, information and products that you are looking for when either searching or shopping online. Uninstalling 180search Assistant will prevent you from seeing products and offers that you might miss out on the next time you are searching or shopping online. Removing 180search Assistant may cripple software applications you like and use everyday.

    Why do I have to download something to uninstall 180search Assistant and why do I have to be connected to the Internet?

    It is necessary to download the 180search Assistant uninstaller because it is the cleanest and simplest way to ensure that 180search Assistant is completely uninstalled from your computer. Note that sometimes after you click "OK" in a dialog box telling you that you must be connected, that another browser window may open with further instructions.


    3) My friends and I have found those pop-out for 180search re-installing are actually task in "windows task manager". When we delete each pop-out, there is a corresponding task vanished.
    Then, we went to "regedit" and deleted their registration under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/currentversion/run/. Also, the exeuction files are all in C:/Windows/ and are deleted. After that, there is no pop-out after rebooting the computer.
    In total, about 36 execution files (atav.exe, azobghyv.exe,...) are deleted. They are all 92kBites in size, and all excuted by user once after the windows begining. They are all hiden file, too. I have try to excute those file manually, and in about 5-10mins the pop-out shows, which I think they should be the sources.

    I am not quite sure whether are we doing the right things, and whether it is completely cleaned. Here is the new HJT log.

    5) The following instructions pertain to all Symantec antivirus products that support Expanded Threat detection.


    Update the definitions.
    Uninstall Adware.180Search using the Add/Remove Programs utility.
    Run a full system scan and delete all the files detected as Adware.180Search.
    Delete the value that was added to the registry.

    For specific details on each of these steps, read the following instructions.

    1. To update the definitions
    To obtain the most recent definitions, start your Symantec program and run LiveUpdate.

    2. To uninstall the Adware

    Do one of the following:
    On the Windows 98 taskbar:
    Click Start > Settings > Control Panel.
    In the Control Panel window, double-click Add/Remove Programs.


    On the Windows Me taskbar:
    Click Start > Settings > Control Panel.
    In the Control Panel window, double-click Add/Remove Programs.
    If you do not see the Add/Remove Programs icon, click "...view all Control Panel options."


    On the Windows 2000 taskbar:
    By default, Windows 2000 is set up the same as Windows 98, so follow the instructions for Windows 98. If otherwise, click Start, point to Settings > Control Panel, and then click Add/Remove Programs.


    On the Windows XP taskbar:
    Click Start > Control Panel.
    In the Control Panel window, double-click Add or Remove Programs.


    Click 180Search Assistant.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Note: You may need to use the scroll bar to view the whole list.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Click Add/Remove, Change/Remove, or Remove (this varies with the operating system). Follow the prompts.

    3. To scan for and delete the files

    Start your Symantec antivirus program, and then run a full system scan.
    If any files are detected as Adware.180Search , click Delete.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Notes:
    If your Symantec antivirus product reports that it cannot delete a detected file, write down the path and file name. Then use Windows Explorer to locate and delete the file.
    If you ran the Add/Remove programs applet as described in the previous section, all the files may have been removed, and thus none of them will be detected.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    4. To delete the value from the registry



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    WARNING: Symantec strongly recommends that you back up the registry before making any changes to it. Incorrect changes to the registry can result in permanent data loss or corrupted files. Modify the specified keys only. Read the document, "How to make a backup of the Windows registry," for instructions.

    Note: This is done to make sure that all the keys are removed. They may not be there if the uninstaller removed them.


    Click Start > Run. (The Run dialog box appears.)
    Type regedit

    Then click OK. (The Registry Editor opens.)


    Navigate to the key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run


    In the right pane, delete the value:

    "MSBB"=[Path to adware file]


    Exit the Registry Editor.

    Here is my new log. I do not get 180search assistance, but there is trouble opening internet explorer. It takes a long time and I get some error messages and eventually I get a notice that the page cannot be opened. At that point, I can enter a specific internet address (or click on a favorite) and I can go to a specific web page. Is there a way that, when I click on the internet explorer icon on my desktop, I can go to the Comcast homepage? Thanks very much. Novice.

    Hello,

    Reboot the computer into safe mode

    Run Hijackthis again and check these items and then on Fix:

    Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default.
    Reset your search settings first.

    Open Folder Options>view and check your settings:
    Select
    Show hidden files and folders
    Display the contents of system folders
    Uncheck: Hide protected operating system files
    Next go to Search and scrolldown using the scroll bar on the right. Go down to More advanced options and click.
    Be sure the first three boxes are selected:
    Search System folders
    Search Hidden Files and folders
    Search SubFolders

    Find and delete these files/folders:

    C:\WINDOWS\wt

    Reboot and run HJT again and post a new log here.
