though Im running Vista SP1
the "winibluesoft" installed red pop-ups appear at the bottom on the screen on login
tried system restore and it crashes the pc to BSOD saying 'reference_by_pointer' and 'page_fault_not_paged_area'
I was running norton but then changed to eset nod32
but couldnt get rid of norton completely as the uninstallation kept failing
attempted to use the 2 programs you mentioned though after installation in either normal or safe mode they wouldnt run
neither would spybot nor AVG, so cant even scan the pc as eset stopped working aswell
firefox/IE opens though it redirects to advert pages and causes a crash
so now using another pc
this doesnt seem to be a common problem searching google
uninstalled the winibluesoft removed the startup item and
removed all i could find in the registry with no luck after reboot into normal or safe mode
maybe reformat time?
Pasting in additional information from another post. ~ OB
After looking through f-secure/norton/avg/spybot current virus databases none of them even seem to recognise this hijacker virus, which is makes me wonder whether its new?!....which would explain why the only people i can find with this problem have only contracted it recently as in the last month only
If this threads needs to be under 'Am I infected' could an admin move it please, to save time.
