    Pop up ads on my computer all the time. My home page is changed sometimes. I put in ULTIMATE POPUP KILLER but ads got worse so I took it out. I ran Ad-aware & Spybot S&D then HijackThis. Here is the log file. Hope you can help! Thank You!

    Hey Rick, wait patiently for one of the experts to help you.

    I only have one question: you say you took out the ultimate popup-killer, but i see it still in your file.
    Did you uninstall it properly and is this just a residu left in the browser buttons?
    I ask this just for my education, i am asking you to do nothing on this till told exactly by an expert!

    Hi Rick54,

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

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,SearchURL = http://zw.com.tw:3128@DF809JOW4WJ2304LFD0SF9FSD0A2T4LDF809JOW4WJ2304LFD0SF9FSD0A2T4LD.BIZ/search.htm (obfuscated)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {0019C3E2-DD48-4A6D-ABCD-8D32436323D9} - C:\WINDOWS\BXXS5.DLL

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [bxxs5] RunDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\BXXS5.DLL,DllRun
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [L_ANETS] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\L_ANETS.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WCODC32A] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WCODC32A.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [updater] C:\Program Files\Common files\updater\wupdater.exe

    O9 - Extra button: PILLS (HKLM)
    O9 - Extra button: SECURITY (HKLM)
    O9 - Extra button: SEARCH (HKLM)

    Then reboot into safe mode
    and delete:
    C:\Program Files\INCREDIFIND <= entire folder
    C:\WINDOWS\BXXS5.DLL
    C:\Program Files\Common files\updater <= entire folder
    C:\WINDOWS\BELT.exe

    And can you find these files:
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\L_ANETS.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WCODC32A.exe

    Rightclick them and choose properties. I'm interested in what it says on the version tab.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Yes, I used the uninstall on ultimate popup-killer so, can I take it out too? I couldn't find these files.

    C:\Program Files\INCREDIFIND <= entire folder

    And can you find these files:
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\L_ANETS.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WCODC32A.exe

    Rightclick them and choose properties. I'm interested in what it says on the version tab

    Thank You!

    Please post a new log.
    The last two you listed may be capable of name-changing.

    We will include the POPUPKILLER in the advise.
