I've just started getting this wretched Aurora pop thing too as I see many others have. I have the Microsoft Antispyware Beta thing and Adaware and they pick it up and tell me that they have cleaned it out but it keeps coming back and judging by the information on here it seems that it's as much good as a chocolate fireguard. I've also had a message about someone trying to install a new dial up number or something.

I'm not that techy and some of the advice on here looks a bit scarey. I'm OK following instructions but if it goes pear shaped I won't know what to do!

I've installed the Hijackthis on the desktop. Can you please hold my hand and tell me what to do next. Thanks.

Mandy, I just went here and ran this and I think it worked for me !!!

http://mypctuneup.com/

So far no Aurora !!! :)

And the nail.exe file that was in my Wondows folder is finally gone. I had tried deleting that thing 20 times before and every time I did, it came right back. But it seems to be gone now.

Hope this works for you.

Thanks Jbraz - just going to try it now. Funny thing was, when I clicked on the "?" on the Aurora Pop up it did point me to that uninstaller I think, but I was sceptical, thinking it was just going to put even more nasties in my system.

I will let you know what happens. Thanks

Well the good news is - hooray, no more Aurora - Microsoft Antispyware didn't pick it up in the new scan after I rebooted - so nice one Jbraz. Thanks.

I've still got this Dialer.ASDPlugin thing now though which is rather more worrying I think. It's trying to put a premium rate number in apparently.

I guess I need to start a new thread eh?

Hi MandyC, welcome to DaniWeb :D

Start with this --

Download Ewido Security Suite from here:
http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/ewido_security_suite/1098736486/1

Install it, and while installing, under Additional Options, uncheck Install background guard and Install scan via context menu.

From the main Ewido screen, click on Update in the left menu, and then click the Start update button. After the update finishes (the status bar at the bottom will display Update successful), close the program (don't scan yet). If you have problems updating see here:
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/updates/

Note -- When you run Ewido for the first time, you will get the warning Database could not be found!, click OK when you do.

Download Nailfix from here:
http://users.pandora.be/bluepatchy/nailfix.zip
Unzip it to your desktop, but do not run it yet.

Reboot into Safe Mode (reboot your computer and tap the F8 key while it's starting back up).

Double-click on the Nailfix.bat that is on your desktop. Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly -- this is normal.

Then run a full system scan with Ewido (note: you will be posting the log from this scan later when back in normal mode).

Reboot normally

Go to Add/Remove Programs in your Control Panel and remove (if found):

MyWebSearch
My Search
SearchAssistant

Move HijackThis into it's own folder by right-clicking in an empty area of your desktop, select New, then Folder. Give the new folder a name (like HJT or HijackThis), and then drag the hijackthis.exe icon that is on your desktop into this new folder.

Scan with hijackthis and have it fix the following entries:

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) -{00A6FAF6-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\SrchAstt\1.bin\MWSSRCAS.DLL

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {00A6FAF1-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - (no file)
O4 - Global Startup: MyWebSearch Email Plugin.lnk = C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSOEMON.EXE
O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://bar.mywebsearch.com/menusear...?p=ZSzfw003XXGB

Go to the following locations and delete the highlighted folder & file:

C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch (folder)
C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe (file)

Reboot, close any open browser windows, scan with hijackthis and post a new log along with the Ewido log.
