I have search bars which I think are from lop.com.

This is what I have done:

* Installed ZoneAlarm firewall
* Installed Norton antivirus, updated.
* Installed SpyBot Search and Destroy and updated it (1.3 with detection dated 8Apr2005) - which didn’t find anything during its scan except a bunch of cookies - not any resident software. “Immunize” setting enabled.
* Installed Ad-Aware and updated it (SE1R42 28.04.2005 - yesterday!) - which also didn’t find anything beyond cookies.
* Installed a 30-day version of SpySubtract (2.6 with definitions file 25Apr2005) - which also didn’t find anything beyond cookies. This now includes CWShredder, which I also updated
* Installed and run HiJack This!

The thing that looks most suspect to me is in Application Data/Trusttime/flaw upload.exe.

Thanks in advance.

Hi zac, That's complements of the nice folks at MessengerPlus! :thumbsup: (nothing to do with Microsoft or MSNIM), Elrond has created a fix, try it first and follow the directions carefully:
SpySubtract may stop the removal, turn it off until you are done.
_______________________________________________________

You have a LOP infection that often comes together with Messenger Plus. To remove it we will try the simple way first.

1. Go to Add/Remove programs. Double click on "Messenger Plus!" (or click on Remove)

2. The "Messenger Plus! - Setup" is now displayed. Click on the Uninstall button. Note: options displayed on the first screen are not related to the sponsor program.

3. The sponsor screen is now displayed (if you don't see it, search for it in your Task Bar). To prove that someone is currently reading the screen, you have to type the code that is displayed. Once you enter the code, press Uninstall.

4. If you entered the code properly, the program will ask you to confirm that you want to uninstall. You must answer "Yes" to this question, else, you won't have another chance of uninstalling.

5. To complete the uninstallation, follow the instructions that are displayed (the first one is to close all your Internet Explorer windows, that's very important). When everything is complete, restart your computer and, hopefully voila one nasty infection is gone.
_________________________________________________________

If that does not remove it, and make sure to try that first, then try this:
http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/lopremover.exe

Download CCleaner from here: http://www.ccleaner.com/ check for updates then run it using the default setting.

Post a new log, stay in this same thread and include any feedback you think I should have, we will have more to do.

Thanks...pskelley

Using add/remove programs actually made the bars more 'sticky' - I couldn't even close the bottom one.

However, lopremover.exe from thespykiller was brilliant - all gone now.

Thank you very much :-)

Good job zac, now there is usually stuff in the log that has to be cleaned up after lop is removed. That is why I asked for a new log. Post that log, let me see if you are clean or not. I have some information to help you stay that way. Thanks...pskelley
