This is mostly my own fault, but solving the problem has got me beat so far.
I subscribed to a list from laughternetwork.com called freefunnyjokes.
Recently their site said "to continue getting our newsletter goto http://freefunnyjokes.info/update.php ". Going to this site said "To continue Click here" - a link to http://laughternetwork.com/installer/videos/new_videos.exe"
More fool me, I clicked on the link, and it has installed something that shows on the system tray as a smiley with a drop down list for assorted kinds of videos.
I cannot find any way of removing this. There is nothing obvious in Add/Remove Programs. I have various software programs showing me what should run at startup, and it all *looks* legitimate. Task Manager gives all the processes running, but again there is nothing obvious there.
I have sent the owners of this list an email asking how to get rid of it, but there has been no response in over a week. Does anyone have any idea of how to get rid of this?

I'm not 100% sure this is spyware, but in any case Ad-aware doesn't come up with anything. I have attached the log from HijackThis if anyone cares to scan it for something out of the ordinary.
(Just as an aside - references to Whale are legitimate - it's the application I need to use to access my company's network). I can identify most of what's there, but there are some things I really don't know what they do!

Hi Norman,

Let's have a look, shall we?

FIRST:
Download HijackThis from http://downloads.malwareremoval.com/hijackthis_sfx.exe

Save the setup file on your desktop.
Then, DoubleClick on it and by default it should install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis
Continue through the setup and allow it to create a desktop icon for you. Follow all the prompts, click Finish

-- Run HJT > Click Do a system scan and save a logfile and submit that for me.

EDIT PP: Missed your last post - please do the below as well....


ALSO:
Let's get a StartupList.
Run HijackThis and open the Misc Tools section.
-- Check the boxes to List minor sections & List empty sections
-- Click Generate StartupList & Yes
-- Please submit that log for me as well.


Will check back as time permits. Lotta playoff football to watch this weekend! ;)

As requested

Hi Norman,

I'm sorry! I am doing ten things at once and was a bit distracted . . ..

What I meant to ask for was the Uninstall List via HJT's Misc Tools.
-- Also, I have attached unstll.zip to this post
-- Please download unstll.zip and extract it to your Desktop.
-- A folder labeled unstll will appear on your Desktop.
-- Open the folder and DoubleClick unstll.bat and give it a couple seconds to run.
A very large log should pop up in Notepad. Please attach that (unstll.txt) for me.

BTW - You should be advised that anytime somebody in any forum gives you an unknown program to run (even a simple batch like this one), it is strictly a "Use At Your Own Risk" proposition!

Anyhoo, it is up to you if you want to trust me :)

-----------------------------------------

I did take a quick look at your Startuplist and saw a couple things. I doubt if they are still active. You've got plenty of anti-spy protection installed and I imagine they cleaned the threat, but I thought I'd point them out to you (these are the only ones that jumped out at me at quick glance):


aaudstum: \??\C:\DOCUME~1\Norman\LOCALS~1\Temp\aaudstum.sys (manual start) --> I don't know what this is. Doesn't look right to me.

mchInjDrv: \??\C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\mc22.tmp (disabled)---> this is related to a nasty backdoor trojan with keylogging capabilities. Probably no longer active, but you may want to investigate further.


Gotta run - Will try to check back as time permits.
In the meantime, you may want to have a look at the unstll.txt and see if you can find the unwanted proggy.

Best :)

get ms windows defender (free) - choose NOT to join spynet and remember to do a ms update after install to get the definitions

run a FULL scan. this has helped me before.

That might be a bit of overkill in this case. ;) The HJT Log shows the following active anti-spy apps:

Spy Sweeper
Spyware Doctor
Winpatrol

These are solid apps. Plus, I'm not so sure we are dealing with a baddie as much as a nuisance program.

LOL! :)

That last post jogged my memory . . . . mc22.tmp may very well be a driver related to the Spyware Doctor component of Spy Sweeper.

Good grief! How do they expect us to keep track of the good and the bad.....

sorry, didnt see that (never used HJT before)

No worries - It was a good suggestion! :)

And, if you hadn't gotten me thinking about it, I'd probably never have placed that questionable driver with Spyware Doctor......

GOTCHA. The uninstall list came up witha couple of curious names I didn't recognise, one of which was "mvi". I uninstalled this and *gone*. I don't know how I missed it in the first place, but having a simple list rather than the info that Add/Remove Programs generates makes it much easier to find something that tries to be anonymous.

Great! Happy to hear it :)

You can also dump J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 3 and install the latest update.

Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6

Cheers :)
