    Well, I ended up just putting it in my host file. That works too.

    I'd still like to know how to find out CLSID's, though.

    Hi Gang

    I am new to this forum, but not to using spyware. I have spybot, spyguard, and spyware blaster. A couple of questions, is the theory of having more is better, or not? I am having trouble with these spyware doers getting rid or even recognizing a couple, I am having trouble with, such as zesty find, and about:blank.

    In spyware blaster if you use the custon blocking, if you just enter the name of the offender, and not the clsid, will it stiil block them? Also can some one tell me where I can find this clsid, and what does the letters mean, in simple terms?..... o_O

    Take care.........Gunny........... :D

    Hi fordvette,

    Welcome at Wilders. :)
    More is not always better, but I see no superfluous combination there.

    Please follow the instructions posted here:
    so we can assist you in getting rid of zestyfind.
    about:blank confuses me in this context, but I think we can clear that up to. :)

    No. I'm afraid that won't work. It's just the other way around. It will work fine with just a CLSID.

    I don't think there is a simple way of explaining it. Would you understand it better if I said it was like a social security number? Unique to a process (in this case) but open for fraude.

    Hi Pieter

    Hey thanks for the information. I guess you are saying if you just put the name in with out the # it will not work, or be affective. You did not mention how you got this #. I appreciate you getting it for me, but if you tell me how to get it, might save you some work.
    Or is it too complicated to even mention?

    Take care............Gunny

    Hi Gunny,

    It's not always easy to find the correct one and it could give you a false sense of security if you thought you had it.
    Sometimes Google will do the trick and sometimes you have to install the "baddies" to find out.

    Plus there is the fraud factor I mentioned. Programs that don't stick to one number and just make up a random one.

    I keep getting a cascade of porn pop-ups on my computer. Spyware seems to have got rid of some of them but not all. I do not know how to find their CLSID's.
    The sites are:
    xxx-Microsoft Internet Explorer provided by Freeserve
    CLICK YES-Microsoft Internet Explorer provided by Freeserve
    Of course deleting one only causes more to appear.
    As I have young children I really am unhappy with these pop-ups. I don't know why they started appearing but I would love any help in stopping them. They first used to appear with a download frame from Proclaim Telecom if that means anything to anyone.

    A few links that may help...

    I hope these help. I may have forgotten a few more. If I'm not wrong, SpywareBlaster helps to protect against 016's ( downloaded programs ) in a HJT log. The 1rst link is to the tutorial for HJT. It's helped me understand what I'm looking at. For help on IE6 & cookies or sites, download this, for IE only, . You may need to tweak your settings. For the CLSID in SpywareBlaster, you'll need to put the full CLSID in, ex. {#'s &/or letters go here}. It may be easier to copy & paste it in though. If you're not sure if a CLSID is safe or bad, SpywareBlaster has a nifty option I just found out about. You can right click on the database screen, left click the Find option, then paste your suspected CLSID in the space provided. If it doesn't show in the database, I've assumed it's alright, or at least possibly unknown to be a baddie.
    Here are 3 of Alexa I'm protected against. You can practice putting these in SpywareBlaster if you're not already protected now. Alexa.. The CLSID is {6AF9BC61-3CC5-42A7-82D1-FFC2562A7289}
    Alexa(2).. The CLSID is {D1F6ABEF-B889-11D2-8E3C-DCCA155F9A71}
    Alexa Variant.. The CLSID is {C95FE080-8F5D-11D2-A20B-00AA003C157A}
    Hope this info helps. :)

    Hello, All --

    The Help file for SpywareBlaster 3.0 says the following concerning adding a custom blocking file:

    You can even download Custom Blocking lists other people have created.

    But it gives no info on how to do this.

    I have a nice long list I would like to add. Can anyone explain how to do this w/o having to go through the tedious process of adding names and CLSIDs one at a time? Is there any way to add it all in one shot?

    All help will be much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Hi, All --

    Okay, I figured out how to place a custom list of names and CLSIDs in there in one shot. For anyone else like me who wanted to know how to do this, I submit the following FYI:

    Create an ordinary txt file called "customblocking.txt," and place it in your SpywareBlaster directory, usually
    C:\Program Files\SpywareBlaster\

    Enter your info in the following format (this is a very short example):


    Name=AdLogix | PHELPER.DLL
    Name=Backdoor.Autoupder (1)
    Name=Backdoor.Autoupder (2)

    Important: Be sure the correct number of entries is entered after "ListNumber=" near the top. For this example, it is 3.

    Save the file. Open SpywareBlaster and go to Tools -> Custom Blocking. Be sure all items you entered into your customblocking.txt file are there, be sure they are all checked, and then click on the "Protect Against Ckecked Items" button to be sure that protection is fully enabled.

    This worked for me. If someone has a problem with this, please point it out so we can all be sure how to do it right.

    Hope this helps.

    Can I use Tony Kleins BHO and toolbar list to add to the custom blocking

    or is this not the same thing?

    Users of SpywareBlaster need to get frequent updates to keep their protection current. It seems that evil ActiveX code crap rivals rabbits in their ability to multiply. There is a time lag between when evil code is identified and its kill instructions are entered into the next SpywareBlaster update.
    You can shorten this time lag if you become aware of evil code and enter it into your own database are using the program's "Custom Blocking" feature.

    Name and CSLID listed here ....

    I was attacked last night again by 2 pests which I believe are ActiveX controlled. Spywareblaster did not prevent either from installing. Spybot later removed both. How do I find the CLSID numbers so that I can go into Custom Blocking and block both?

    Websites may go through various tricks to try and hide the CLSID, but the straightforward method is as follows:

    The following instructions are for experienced users only. If you aren't sure about any part, please just send the webpage to me and I'll take a look at it.

    1.) Right-click on the webpage.
    2.) Select "View Source" from the menu that appears.
    Notepad should open with the source code for the webpage.
    3.) In Notepad, press CTRL + F to open the "Find" box.
    4.) Enter "<OBJECT" and press OK to find the first instance. Keep using "Find Next..." until you've located all instances in the code.

    A sample embedded ActiveX control could use code like the following:
    <OBJECT ID="Example ActiveX Control"

    In the example above, the part you would be looking for is the CLSID - "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000".

    When entering it into SpywareBlaster, make sure you add the brackets "{}" - {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000} .

    But a word of warning: I would highly recommend that you first send the webpage on which you are receiving the ActiveX prompt to me. I can look it over and, potentially, find an item or two to add to the SpywareBlaster database so everyone can benefit from the protection. Doing so will also help prevent blocking something that is good or wanted by mistake.

    Best regards,

    CLSID for DSO Exploit

    Does anyone know the CLSID for a program called "DSO Exploit"? I pick it up from when I play a game. Spyblaster has blocked everything else yahoo tries to give me except for this program. Spybot says that the program is coming through a "hole" in IE. Is this Active X? If so, could it be added to the next update for Spyblaster?

    Lari :rolleyes:

    I've been having a problem with "WinEssential.Jraun.Kanhaiya".

    Would you happen to know their CLSID or how to find it?
