    I have managed to get a bunch of crap on my computer including wwwfind.biz, purityscan and others. I have done the removal of purityscan but it has come back twice now. I have run adaware and Spybot. I also relize that all the R1's for wwwfind.biz should be deleted, but they comeback everytime i reboot so i just left them there for now. I can't seem to find any information esleware about this hijack.

    Hi mr2fyre

    I did a google search for :: WWW find.biz ::

    Found this:

    Search the web: HOT SEARCH. To uninstall our "Search ToolBar" you
    have to download and run this file: Download Here, Online casinos ...
    wwwfind.biz/suport.html

    I have NO idea if you can trust them !!!!!

    As to purity scan -

    purityscan - manual instructions here:
    http://www.kephyr.com/spywarescanner/library/purityscan/index.phtml

    If you decide to try find.biz - is UP to you ! - run immediately ad aware and spybot !

    Sorry, but I can NOT find more info :(

    I could not get to any of the wwwfind.biz webpages from my computer. I used my gf's computer and got to the page with the removal program. Downloaded it, ran it. all of wwwfind.biz was removed. I then ran adaware and spybot and nothing new showed up. I ran hijackthis and had a couple of new R1's that showed up, as was an attempt to change my homepage was noted by spy sweeper. I deleted the new R1's that showed up after running the removal program. Restarted the computer and there does not appear to be any bad stuff left. So I guess the removal program worked.

    Purityscan is gone now. I have made it through one re-boot without it coming back. I gues i just have to wait and see if it is gone for good.

    Hi mr2fyre

    Well, that seems to be "good news". Thanks for your feedback !

    Yep, wait a couple of days - if it comes back - pls. use this thread and post a fresh HJT log - this way we have everything together :)

    Crossing my fingers - it stays away :D
