I'm completely frustrated. I signed up to broadband for the first time last november. Since then i've had may problems with multimedia flash pop ups. The one that my 2pop up blockers fail to erradicate is
'Top Searches On The Web'.

It actually goes out of it's way to click off my current page and onto it's page causing the next problem as i click back onto my original page.

THE MAJOR PROBLEM is the fact that when i connect to the internet, the page automatically clicks off the page as if another one were opening (sometimes a pop up appears sometimes not) and then when i attempt to type any info on the page:
1) the font keeps changing from caps lock to lowercase automatically
2) when i try to scroll down with my mouse it highlights the whole page
3)i can't use num lock numbers or numbers that appear without pressing shift.

I have the current norton anti-virus package so i don't think i have a virus, but i have no idea what to do or how to stop this. I also have a feeling that the 'Top Searches On The Web' pop up has something to do with it.
:sad: Please Help?:sad:

i've already got adaware and spy-bot but it's failed to get rid of it. Also my norton anti-virus doesn't always get rid of all the adware threats.

Is the hijacker easy to use?

Actually, it's an anti-hijacker. The page that Caperjack refers to is both a download link and a quick-start for beginners on HijackThis. I'm also writing a beginner oriented article on this subject, as well.

You do realize that you have to attempt to update the data files for both Spybot - S & D and Ad-aware before each run? If not, you may still be vunerable.

You could also benefit from using a browser with built in abilities to stop pop ups. MYIE2 runs on the IE engine without most of the security loopholes of IE. Also Mozilla & Opera are excellent browsers.

THere are several sites that advertise top searches from the web, do you know which particular site you are reffering to??? If the programs that caperjack recommended did not work, then maybe you will have to remove it manually. If you give me the details I will give it a try to find the details for you.

also did any toolbars or favourites or links appeared???

Another thing to do is to disable the Windows Messaging service, which is used by spammers to send popup window ads using SMB:

Open Control Panel

Double-click on Administrator Tools

Double-click on Services

Locate "Messenger" in the list of services.

Double-click on "Messenger"

Click on "Stop"

After the service is stopped, disable it by choosing "Disabled" from the dropdown list next to "Startup Type:"

NOTE: Another thing to disable is the Remote Registry Service, unless you have a program that you know for sure uses it.

You have the peper trojan Follow these instructions to get rid of it..

1. Use the uninstall tool - download from:

http://www.memorywatcher.com/uninst.exe

double click on 'uninst.exe', let it run and terminate. You must be online to have this work and do not block any attempts for the program to connect to internet if your firewall squwaks.

Then!
You should move the hijackthis.exe file to its own folder like C
:\hj\hijackthis.exe before you run it again ,hijack creates backups and needs its own folder ,run it then post back with a new log .

I've been trying to run the hijackthis program but the link does not work and keeps coming up as the page cannot be displayed.

I'm not sure what's going on.

Yeah ,the site where it located at is down .You all ready posted a log what did you do with the program .?????

Did you run the peper trojan remover yet !

one word can fix your problem. STOP ZILLA its one of the best pop up blockers ive ever seen. I never get any pop ups. It has a free trial, then u have to purchase it, but its well worth it in the long run. If you have no patience clicking the (X) button 400 times just to clear the pop ups. Also, you can try going to tools and internet options, then privacy and move the cookies blocker to a higher level.

the above computer has a trojan that needs fixing ,Stop Zilla will not fix it ,may have prevented it !.
Google toolbak stops almost all popups and its Free!!

You still have hijackthis in a temp folder please put it in its own folder something like C:\HJ\Hijackthis.exe ,so that it can create a backup when you use it thanks .

Make sure all browser windows are closed
and run hijack and fix the following


R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = about_:blank


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

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing


O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [sws.exe] c:\program files\HaldexLtd\boob3\3141917.exe -remove

This one is optional but reccomended to fix resource hog and no need to be running all the time .

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE

Reboot and post new log

I know this sound foolish but the reason why hijackthis is still running in a temp folder is because i'm not sure how to put it into it's own folder and noone has explained how to do it, Would anyone mind explaining and then i will fix and post a log.

Sorry, but what i meant to say was how do you get hijackthis to save logs in the folder without manually transferring the files.

Don't worry, I think i've worked it out.

I tried to remove HaldexLtd but it does not exist in my programs folder or in any hidden folders in My Computer. I have re-run hijackthis and here's my log.
