    Problem is as follows: I am running Windows 2000 Professional on a computer that is not connected to a network. A program called "tvm.exe" (TV Media) has installed itself on my system, and no attempt has yet been able to remove it. I ran Ad-Aware 6.0 after updating it and it did not remove this program either, which spyware.com says is a form of adware. This spyware has been interfering with the install/uninstall of certain programs, including America Online's network adapter. TV Media appeared on my system, under Program Files, on 7/10/04 - I had received a warning from my virus scanner AVG about a possible trojan virus the same night, so this program may have been involved.

    HI mwenyekischaa

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

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://server224.smartbotpro.net/7search/?new-hkcu

    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://server224.smartbotpro.net/7search/?new-hklm

    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {707E6F76-9FFB-4920-A976-EA101271BC25} - (no file)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime <-----optional

    Then reboot and use AdAware as described :
    HERE

    Now, empty your TEMP Folder / Temporary Internet Files Folder and then empty your "Recycle Bin" and reboot.

    Problem gone?
