    I was running a SpyBot scan on a computer, and the following items keep reoccuring:

    BlazeFind.SearchEnhancer.ISTbar
    DSOExploit
    DownloadWare
    Network Essentials
    Avenue A, Inc

    Spybot says it can't fix them, etc.... Ran it in safe mode and still didn't work. Says the programs are still in memory and can't be shut down.

    any thoughts? Thanks

    Hi SonicMonkey :)

    I'm not an expert but i'm pretty sure BlazeFind is a Hijacker.

    Are u getting unwanted popups or trouble with your homepage?

    If so, u may want to post another HijackThis log and let the experts take a look. ;)

    Hope this helps.

    Well, Here is the HJT Log. This isn't a high priority, seeing as How I already removed 400 items with adaware / spybot and the computer is lightning quick now. But, if you see anything I should fix, let me know as Spybot still detects a few repeats.

    Hi SonicMonkey,

    Before you start, please move hijackthis to a separate folder. The program will make backups in the folder in the folder it's in.
    These will now end up on your desktop.

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

    F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\Windows\System32\wsaupdater.exe,

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {80BE2EB2-0C5F-43B2-B639-4EF046D07EAD} - C:\WINDOWS\gvci.dll

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {C5183ABC-EB6E-4E05-B8C9-500A16B6CF94} - C:\Program Files\SEP\sep.dll

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {BDF6CE3D-F5C5-4462-9814-3C8EAC330CA8} - (no file)
    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {2CDE1A7D-A478-4291-BF31-E1B4C16F92EB} - (no file)
    O3 - Toolbar: Band Class - {C5183ABC-EB6E-4E05-B8C9-500A16B6CF94} - C:\Program Files\SEP\sep.dll

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UpdReg] C:\WINDOWS\Updreg.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [webHancer Survey Companion] "C:\Program Files\webHancer\Programs\whSurvey.exe"
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Wast] C:\WINDOWS\Wast
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TEKRXBH] C:\WINDOWS\TEKRXBH.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [oFFi3ql] kd1edia.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DKQXEK] C:\WINDOWS\DKQXEK.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [bGEii5] C:\documents and settings\stan\local settings\temp\bGEii5.exe

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    C:\Program Files\webHancer <= entire folder
    C:\Program Files\SEP <= entire folder

    Then (still in safe mode) use the Disk Cleanup Utility to empty all your Temp folders.

    Post a new log when you are done, so we can see if everything worked out as planned.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Ok, here is the new HJT Log. Also I have two other questions: How can I donate to this site? You guys are awesome and I want to donate some $!.

    The other question is Spybot is still turing up some leftovers such as DSO Exploit, BlazeFind.SearchEnhancer.ISTbar, DowloadWare, and Network Essentials. However, these do not seem to be affecting performance or creating pop-ups so I think they are just shreds in the registry. Thanks!!

    Nevermind about the spyware not deleting those entries!! I figured it out - just deleted the Registry values myself after making sure the programs weren't actually still running

    Looking at your (clean) log that seems like the correct assumption.
    But clean out your Temp folders and Restore Points as well.

    Regards,
