To start off, whenever i open up my internet browser i cannot click hyperlinks which open up new windows. This then proceeds to freeze and then finally crash. If i open up task manager it says that internet explorer is not responding. If i right click these 2 windows underneath the application tab and click go process, the main internet windows process is IEXPLORER.exe (as suspected) and the popup window process is EXPLORER.exe, this may be correct but i would have suspected it to be IEXPLORER.exe. This problem has been bugging me for about a week or 2 now, and have recently realised this is since my adblocker demo had expired. If anyone could please help me i would be extremely grateful as i cannot even update my website due to hyperlinks not beng able to work.

HI

Explorer.......is windows
Iexplore.......is Internet explorer

IEXPLORER.....has been called....Virus/Trojan/Worm/Adware/Spyware

In fact the application is a variant of the RapidBlaster parasite which downloads advertising from the Internet and displays it periodically.

First download and run this :-

http://www.wilderssecurity.net/downloads/rbkiller.exe

Then

Please Download hijackthis from

http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip

Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

After the scan has finished the "scan" button will turn into a "save log" button

save the log file and paste it here

Do not delete anything yet, as most things hijackthis finds are harmless and needed.

I used Spybot to remove spyware , and initially i thought this had worked as popup windows could now open but another problem has occured that most popup windows are just blank!, just a plain blank white screen with no address in the address bar or nothing. I ran RapidBlaster killer and it said nothing was detected.
Can anyone help?

I copyied your log to the hijackthis fourm and got this answer .So if you wantto do as suggested ,and post a new log I will post the new log there to and get back to here with there suggestions .This from hijack fourn ..

You have a number of issues, and I therefore suggest you proceed as follows:
Download Spybot - Search & Destroy http://mjc1.com/mirror/hjt/

After installing, you MUST first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
Next, close all Internet Explorer windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove/fix all it finds.
That ought to get rid of much of your spyware.

Subsequently restart your computer, run Hijack This once more, repost to this forum thread, and show us a fresh log.

There will be more to do!

Hi

First... there is no sign of IEXPLORER in your log (perhaps you copied the name wrong ?) or spybot has removed it.


Second.... uninstall superbar from control panel

Third .... Close all browser windows - run hijackthis and tick to fix :-
