    Hello,

    I searched for a fix to remove the annoying xadso popups and cam across your site.

    I downloaded the HijackThis software and this is my log:

    Re: xadso adware removal

    Hi kjknoll

    Pls. save yur Hijackthis into its OWN folder - like C:\HIjackthis.

    You want to get rid of MORE "bad stuff" !

    P2P Networking .... it's a useless Kazaa add on that's been proven to slow down systems - pls. go to add\remove and remove it from there.

    Check the following items in HijackThis.
    Close all windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked":

    NOTE....even in safe mode you may have to open taskmanager and end task on some of them before you can delete them.

    Make sure you can view hidden and system files: Instructions here

    Then Boot to safe mode: Instructions here

    Delete the following files\folders IF still present:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\hlink.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\P2P Networking <-----folder
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\kdpupd.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\KDP0a73.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\wxwumqba.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\drvsys.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\drvddll.exe

    Reboot

    Go for free online Virus scans here:

    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
    http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/

    Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the file location so you can delete it yourself.

    use AdAware as described :
    HERE

    Spybot S&D
    The download for Spybot S&D is available here: http://www.computercops.biz/downloads-file-108.html

    Install by double-clicking on the downloaded file.

    Press "Download updates" button.
    Close all IE windows and close & restart Spybot S&D.
    Press "Check for problems" button.
    Have SpyBot remove all it marks in red by pressing "Fix selected problems".

    Close Spybot S&D, reboot your system .

    Then browse to the C:\documents and settings\\User Name (repeat for all users)\local settings\temp folder and delete all files and folders in it.
    Then browse to the C:\Windows\Temp folder and delete all files in it.
    Then in internet explorer click tools>internet Options>General. Click on Delete Files make sure you get all offline content as well.
