Good day, folks. I'm from Canada, work in Yemen and live in Ukraine. (love those flyer points)

As with some of you, I suppose, I finally got off my butt and started looking for nasty bleep installed on my system. After downloading free ZoneAlarm, I kept getting a bunch of firewall hits from programs I didn't recognize. I have Adaware se, Spybot s&d, Adblaster and Norton anti virus. Still, a few things persist. Pcpittstop detected a few things it didn't recognize. Further searching led me to Hijack this and this forum.

In my short time looking around here, it seems there are a lot of folks willing to help out we who are, (relatively), helpless.

Thanks in advance to whomever offers aid.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer there "Joe Canuck"

Nice to see another "overseas" working individual amongst all here.

There is a good crew here willing to help out - all are volunteers too!

Please take some time and read through the forums, maybe starting here...

Hi Joecanuck and welcome from a fellow canuck. Take a look at the bottom of this page for the Spyware/HJ Detector and click on that link for a quick analysis.

Hope you find this site helpful and informative.

Many thanks to IMM for helping me clean the bleep out of my system. It's running as well as a 3 year old unit can be expected to. Great work.
