Beginning of standard canned reply.
Update Windows. Use a firewall.
Use an Anti-Virus of your choice and keep it updated.
In Windows Explorer, set Folder Options to “show all files”.
Clean out all temp, cache, ect. files.
Download BeClean here:
Download Sysclean from here:
Read this(it tells you how to use it!):
Reboot into safe mode and run Sysclean, write down results, then reboot
If offending file is in “restore” read this:
Download AdAware from here:
Read the help files,download the winsock fix, and then Update and run
If you lose your Internet connection after running AdAware run the fix.
Winsock Fix here:
Download Spybot Search+Destroy here:
Update and run Spybot (enable all protection).
Download Spyware Blaster here: (enable all protection)
Run a couple of online scanners (pick a different one than your main AV):
If the previous do not solve your problems:
Download Bazooka here:
Download SwatIt here:
Download KL-Detector here
Download CWShredder here
Download HijackThis here:
Install, run and save the log that is created. Don’t let it fix anything
You can find forums to post the log to have it analyzed here:
Download Stinger here:
Download eScan here:
Rename the downloaded file escan.zip and extract (with a zip program) to
C:\Downloads, which you will have to create. Run the updater
(kavupd.exe) and then run eScan (mwavscan.exe).
