    I am having the similar problems that so many others are reporting, although mine seems to be with a program called "Xlime Offer Optimizer". I ran both Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D as instructed, then downloaded and ran HijackThis, which produced the log below. Thank you in advance for any help you have to offer!

    Here is my log:

    Hi nrohan,

    Before you start, please unzip hijackthis to a separate folder. The program will make backups in the folder in the folder it's in.
    These easily get lost in a Temp folder.

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

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {000020DD-C72E-4113-AF77-DD56626C6C42} - C:\WINDOWS\twaintec.dll

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

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

    O16 - DPF: {56336BCB-3D8A-11D6-A00B-0050DA18DE71} (RdxIE Class) - http://software-dl.real.com/075937cc2d2d70058502/netzip/RdxIE601.cab

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    C:\WINDOWS\alchem.exe

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Xlime Offer Optimizer Problem (Again!)

    Dear Pieter,

    Sorry to have to bother you again. I unplugged my office laptop which is ordinarily plugged into a fairly sophisticated firewall and took it with me on vacation, plugging it into the hotel broadband service. Now I am getting those same annoying pop-ups as before. I ran Spybot S&D as before then downloaded and ran HijackThis, which produced the log below. Thank you in advance for any help you have to offer! I can pledge that this will be the last such incident, as all my computers will have Spybot and AdAware installed.

    Here is my log:

    Pieter,

    That did the trick. I appreciate the service you and others working with Wilders Security Forum provide. It is invaluable. Many thanks.
