Ok, so I came across your site while searching to try to find a way to remove Yazifind pop-ups. I registered, but I am not sure if I am doing things on your site the way that you want. I downloaded the HJT program (it appeared from other people's posts that I needed this). I ran the HJT program, and I will post my log below. I have run ad-aware, spy-bot, and norton AV to try to remove this problem, with no success. I started getting the yazifind pop-up at the same time as a variety of other pop-ups that I seem to not be able to get rid of. Can you please help me? Like I said, I am new to this (not computers, just new to trying to take care of things like this) and I am to the point of abosulte frustration with these pop-ups. Any help you may be able to give would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance... Scott

Hi and welcome to the Daniweb forums :).


Please visit at least two of the following sites for an online virus scan:

BitDefender Free Online Virus Scan
Make sure you tick AutoClean under Scan Options.

Panda ActiveScan
Make sure you tick Disinfect automatically under Scan Options.

Housecall at TrendMicro
Make sure you tick Auto Clean.
When it completes, post back the full filename of any files that cannot be cleaned or deleted.

eTrust Antivirus Web Scanner


Now, let's open a command prompt by going to the start menu and then select 'Run'.

In the box that pops up type in 'cmd'. The command prompt will open.


You can go to Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt. Unregister the dll(s) we're going to remove, by entering the following:

regsvr32 /u WinStat13.dll

It's ok, if these aren't found or 'error' out. If you want, just copy and paste the individual lines to the command prompt to save typing them in.


Run HiJackThis then:

1. Click "Open the Misc Tools Section"
2. Click "Open Process manager"


Next, while holding down the CTRL key, locate (if present) and click on (highlight) each of the following:

C:\Program Files\Vaelddc\Uypsece.exe

Now double-check and make sure that only those item(s) above are highlighted, then click "Kill process". Now, click "Refresh", check again, and repeat this step if any remain.


Still in HiJackThis, click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present:

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = about:blank

O2 - BHO: WinStat - {0BAE99AF-A9F7-4f7e-9C72-2C1CC81BE0FF} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\WinStat13.dll

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Hcxpkyc] C:\Program Files\Vaelddc\Uypsece.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [gduz] C:\WINDOWS\system32\gduz.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [wrfq] C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\wrfq\wrfqm.exe

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present
...(Unless you've set these with an anti-spyware program like SpyBot's Immunize feature, have HiJackThis fix this.)

O15 - Trusted Zone: http://www.neededware.com

O16 - DPF: NDWCab - http://www.neededware.com/ndw4.cab

Now, close all instances of Internet Explorer and any other windows you have open except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".


Locate and delete the following item(s), if present. Make sure you are able to view system and hidden files/ folders:


C:\Program Files\Vaelddc




Note that some of these file(s)/folder(s) may or may not be present. If present, and cannot be deleted because they're 'in use', try deleting them in "Safe Mode".




To help protect your system from hostile ActiveX content, or special 'downloadable' files:

Download, install and keep updated, SpywareBlaster. If you've installed it for the first time:

1) Check for any available updates; if present, they'll be automatically downloaded and installed.
2) Next, "Enable all protection".
3) Exit the program.


Note: Remember to regularly check for updates.


After rebooting, rescan with hijackthis and post back a new log. Please let me know how your pc is now.
