    I am a new member and I recently installed spyware blaster and spybot s&d due to a annoying message from "crazywinnings.com" constantly popping up everytime I try to surf the net. when the message comes up, you can't do anything accept click the red x exit button and then another message pops up saying" you must click yes to enter this site" IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY" even though I've installed both of these programs and found the ip address of this message and even added it to spywareblaster's custom blocking list...it still keeps coming up! I'm almost ready to unplug my computer or get another one..but before I abandon all hope...CAN ANYONE HELP ME?:'(

    Hi NativeGyrl, ;)

    Welcome to Wilders'

    The Short of it is ... You will need a Spyware Expert ... to examine a HiJack This Log File ... Unfortunately ... Wilders' No longer anylizes/cleans those logs ... Your Best bet would be to go to Computer Cops - http://computercops.biz/ or NI - http://forums.net-integration.net/ or Subtratams - http://www.subratam.org/

    Read the FAQ/Rules before posting ... and they will lead you step by step thru the process. ;) What ever you do DO NOT attempt to clean your own Log, as most of what will be listed, is needed for Windows to operate/function.

    Please let us know how it goes. ;)

    Best Wishes, ;)

    Hey nativegyrl....Welcome to Wilders [​IMG]

    Your pretty well covered as far as the cleaning suggestions submitted by both Blackspear and Dog....since either one should achieve satisfactory results. However....the above portion I quoted from your post needs to be addressed concerning SpywareBlaster. When you get time....after your cleaning....you need to take a look at the below thread concerning SpywareBlaster and it's Custom Blocking feature. Entries you add there is not in the form of an IP....but in the form of a particular CLSID # associated with an AcvtiveX object.

    Read this---> How to add custom CLSID's to block with SpywareBlaster

    I know what you mean.

    What a mess. I did a quick self-exposure test, went to the site, and allowed it to do it's thing (as a cascade of KAV/BOClean/and TDS-3 on scan alarms went off). Lots of trojan activity.

    The link provided by Blackspear should handle everything based on my cleanup activity. The other thing that I'd add is that having a second, non-IE browser installed on your PC can help. I generally use Firefox 1.0 myself. It is useful to have even if you choose to stay with IE as your main browser since it is not susceptible to some types of malware and can assist in maintaining reasonable Internet connectivity as things are cleaned up.

    Let us know if you're running into problems cleaning. This case doesn't appear overwhelmingly difficult, but there are a lot of persistent buggers loaded by this site, so it will feel overwhelming until you're done.

    It's not just popups, which anyone can deal with, but ActiveX plugins (or the irrelevance thereof) which is important.
