Hello!! im just new in here..

I guess this is the right place to ask for a help co'z my head hurts finding ways to solve problem in my computer.

Addsite still pops-up even i have turned on my pop-up blocker and i guess it slows down our computer. Even the Windows defender cant block it. I think my brother have visited some sites and havent noticed that something have installed in the computer. I uninstalled Context tool and addsite in Remove Programs to think that would stop but the problem still there. I scan it with McAfee and downloaded Windows Defender to fix about it. I removed some quarantined items to to think it would help. I even downloaded the latest version of yahoo toolbar to have an Anti-spy and block the pop-ups but still ads weren't removed. All the softwares i used to fix it is updated. Its getting me hard time to fix it so I surf the net for searching a new software to fix the problem thats why I accidentally found out about this site. I hope someone could help me..Thanks a lot. By the way, im running a Windows XP Professional SP2..

9C8A568E-4201-478a-8536-526CF371D2E2 is related to BHO ads_optimizer

Many toolbars and add-ons can easily be removed from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel so always check there first.

If not listed there, an easy utility to remove unwanted add-ons is ToolbarCop.
  • After download, extract (unzip) the file, and save the executable to a permanent folder, not a Temp directory. This is because ToolbarCop creates the Undo (.reg) files in the same directory from where it's launched.
  • Double-click on ToolbarCop.exe to launch.
  • Scroll through the list and highlight the add on you want to remove.
  • Write down the file name and full path to that file.
  • Right-click on it and choose Delete the selected item.
  • Navigate to the location of the file, and if it still exists, right-click on it and choose delete.
ToolbarCop Usage Instructions if needed.

If you have Spybot S&D installed, launch it, go to mode and click Advanced. Then go to Tools and make sure there is a check mark next to BHOs on the right. Under Tools click on BHOs and scroll through the list for an entry related to the one you want to remove. If you click on each CLSID number you will get additional information including the full path where it is residing. Click on the entry to highlight it, then select "Remove".

Search for and delete the following file(s)/folder(s) in bold if they are present. You can use Windows Explorer to navigate to or use Windows Search feature > More advanced options to locate them.

Files:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\nsb9A.dll <- this file

To do this, go to Start -> Search and click For Files or Folders....
  • Click All files and folders.
  • Type in the name of the file under "Search by...criteria."
  • Click More advanced options and check these options:
    • "Search system folders"
    • "Search hidden files and folders"
    • "Search subfolders"
  • Then click "Search" to look for the file(s).
When found right-click the file, choose delete and empty your recycle bin. If you get an error when deleting a file, right-click on it and check to see if the read only attribute is checked. If it is, uncheck it and try again. If you still have problems, then delete the file(s) in "Safe Mode".
