    Full information: http://www.wilderssecurity.net/specialinfo/rapidblaster.html

    In addition...


    Since RapidBlaster will "morph" itself whenever it detects an uninstallation attempt, removal with current anti-spyware software may not be successful.

    We have created a unique tool, RapidBlaster Killer, that can scan all running programs, detect RapidBlaster, and successfully terminate the process and remove the Run key registry entry.

    RapidBlaster Killer - released June 8, 2003 (mirrored by SpywareInfo)

    RapidBlaster Killer will create a log file named "scanlog.txt" in the folder it is placed if RapidBlaster is detected, and will notify the user of the file path/location. RB Killer will not delete the file automatically - the user must do this manually.

    After a successful termination of any RapidBlaster processes, using a program such as Spybot S & D or Ad-Aware should clean up any remnants.

    Thank you Javacool, :)

    I´m sure that will come in handy, lots of times.

    Well I hope so. :D

    Currently, Spybot and other programs have trouble removing RapidBlaster because the process remains running and "morphs" to another location. (Using HijackThis to remove the Run entry can trigger RapidBlaster's "morphing" behavior also.) RB Killer will send a little "cease and desist". ;)

    You're welcome, Paul.

    It's been a major pain... :rolleyes:

    So far we've been able to get it off peoples systems by having them start up in Safe Mode, delete the RB folder there, and, still in Safe Mode, delete or disable its startup, but Javacool's solution sure is a h*ll of a lot slicker! :D

    That's why he is "JavaCOOL! " ;)

    RapidBlaster Killer 1.3 released - June 10, 2003.

    (The link takes you directly to the download.)

    Release notes:
    -RapidBlaster Killer can now perform a full clean-up (it is no longer limited to just terminating the process). It can delete the RapidBlaster files/folders, remove the uninstall entries, and remove the Run key entries (all after detecting and terminating the process of course).

    Enjoy! :D

    Best regards,

    -Javacool

    Is RapidblasterKiller still available? Thetriune1 was right: the link no longer works.

    Must've been a hiccup somewhere. It didn't work for me last night, but I just grabbed it, so everything is hunky-dory. Thanks for the reply.

    Hi. I just found your forum through a Google search. I am responding to thetriune1's post (dated March 18, 2004) regarding Dynasoft entries in the registry.
    I use several good anti-spyware, anti-trojan and anti- virus programs as well but it seems as if the entries show up in "RegCleaner 4.3" every time I restart Windows (XP Pro.) Did anyone ever find any info on Dynasoft other than what Google pulls up? Is it a trojan? Dialer? Help Please!!

    Heartfelt thanks to anyone who can help,
    Gina
    :)

    Thanks Snap!
    I downloaded "Hijack This!" and need one additional favor. Could you please post the hijack cleaning forum's URL? I apologize, I am very new to this and cannot find the correct forum section; I want to make sure I post the log in the correct place.

    Thanks so much!

    Gina
    :)

    EDIT: Snap, I think I found it! :D
    Is this the correct URL? https://www.wilderssecurity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=26
    (I will post the log there. If this is not the correct place to post please let me know. Thanks again!) ;)
