    Hi all :D

    I am trying to clean up my friend Amanda's computer. She is asleep and I am working! I have downloaded and run both Adware and Spybot per instructions - Seem to have reappearing programs, specifically Virtual Blaster, Lycos Sidesearch, MyWay tool bar, to name a few. PC is EXTREMELY slow now, not sure what is up with that. Lots of pop ups - searches are taken over, keeps changing my home page, all the regular stuff. This all started when her "friend" :oops: convinced her to download Grokster(not me!). She Has since parted ways with the friend!

    So, here is the log from hijack this and I want to thank you in advance for taking the time to help.

    Hi Kelli Kitch,

    You have some interesting new files there.

    Before anything gets fixed, could you please mail these files to the address in my profile?
    C:\WINDOWS\AdRoar.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\ARUpdate.exe

    Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {01C5BF6C-E699-4CD7-BEA1-786FA05C83AB} - C:\Program Files\AproposClient\AproposPlugin.dll

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {BDF6CE3D-F5C5-4462-9814-3C8EAC330CA8} - C:\WINDOWS\AdRoar.dll
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {FDD3B846-8D59-4ffb-8758-209B6AD74ACC} - (no file)

    O3 - Toolbar: Band Class - {BDF6CE3D-F5C5-4462-9814-3C8EAC330CA8} - C:\WINDOWS\AdRoar.dll

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KAZAA] C:\Program Files\Grokster\Grokster.exe /SYSTRAY
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [version] C:\WINDOWS\System32\version.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AdRoarUpdate] C:\WINDOWS\ARUpdate.exe

    Then reboot and delete:
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\version.exe
    C:\Program Files\AproposClient <= entire folder

    As soon as you have received my confirmation of receiving the files, I asked you to send in, you can delete those as well. They are new variants of known Adware: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/adware.adroar.html

    I would like to forward them so detection can be added for the benefits of future victims.

    Regards and thanks in advance,

    Pieter
