Note: If you were using Messenger Plus! Live and want to continue to use it, then reinstall and choose not to install the Sponsor after your computer has been cleaned. See How to remove Messenger Plus (C2Media) and How to install Messenger Plus! Live without the Sponsor.

If none of these programs were listed, then continue as follows.

Please download the Lop uninstaller and save to your desktop.
alternate download
  • Double-click on uninstall.exe.
  • Click Ok, the Ok again.
  • Type the number you see on the "verification" screen and click Uninstall.
  • You will be asked to "Please close all browser windows and Explorer folders...". Click Ok.
  • Restart your computer when done.
Note:Some anit-virus and anti-malware scanners may detect the uninstaller as malware. This is common with programs created to remove certain infections. You will have to let your anti-virus allow the file to download and run. When it has finished, you can allow your security programs to remove the uninstaller.

Well nothing was found so this will require further investigation.

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log" and complete all the steps. There are instructions for downloading and running Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) which will create a hijackthis log for you, or automatically download and install the most current version of HijackThis if it's not already installed on your computer.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
