Please help! I downloaded limewire and then my computer started acting up when I would use Internet Explorer (adzgalore and that cmpsky window would pop up until I had to force quit multiple times). I deleted some adzgalore file from my c drive but now I'm getting a window about antispywaremaster. I think I'm in trouble. What do I do to clean this thing out of my computer? Do I have a virus? PLEASE HELP!! THANK YOU!! :thumbsup:

Please run thus PC scan tool.
Are you using XP?

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Yes I'm using XP. Below are the log results. Also, I did get a message that it couldn't remove something so I followed the prompts and it restarted the computer. Should I do another scan just to be sure it got everything and paste those results too? Thanks for the help BTW. I didn't know what to do :thumbsup:

I think I have a problem. I ran Malware connected to IE and not connected to IE and Malware finds the same infected files (I have posted the log results below). I give Malware the OK to get rid of the files and it says it does. But when I turn off the computer and then turn it back on, if I run Malware again it finds the same files and the process repeats itself. Any ideas? :thumbsup:

OK, I think it worked!! I ran the program and it killed off some stuff. I rebooted and ran the program again and it says I'm clean! So that's it, right? Now ... is there a way I can download limewire again without getting the same bugs (or others)? I really don't want to have to go through this again. :thumbsup:

No there is not

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
