Hi,

I just finished using your tutorial for "removing surf sidekick 2 or 3". Thank you!

Through SSk, however, WinFixer 2005 installed onto my desktop and I removed it using its own uninstall function.
But there's still a WinFixer 2005 folder under C:\Windows, which contains the files lock.dat and WFX5.exe and I'm still getting its error messages whenever I start up my computer:
"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
RunTime Error
Program: C:\ProgramFiles\Internet Exploer\IExplore.exe
R6025 - pure virtual function call"

Could someone help me remove it along with any other spyware (I'm still getting popups) I have? Thank you!

I don't have Adware or Spybot and it's Windows98 I'm using.

Here's my HijackThis log:

Hi, thanks for your reply.

ewido doesn't work on Windows98 and won't install.
Is there another way to fix my computer?

Print out these instructions and then close all windows including Internet Explorer.

Then I want you to fix some of those entries. Please do the following:

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

Thanks for your quick reply.

FinePrint is a program that helps organize your printing (ie. print 4 pages onto one page etc.) My professor recommended it to us for printing out his notes. I hope the program is okay, here's the link: Fineprint

Two questions:
I still have a WinFixer 2005 folder under C:\Windows, should I delete that?
For utib24vt, I deleted the .exe file but should i delete its configuration file too?

Yes you can delete that directory and the config file.

Fix these two as well for good measure:

Your log is clean! Great job!

Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

or

Windows XP System Restore Guide

Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above


Next,

This process will clean out your Temp files and your Temporary Internet Files. Please do both steps:

Step 1:Delete Temp Files
To clean out your temp files, click on Start and then run, and type %temp% and press the ok button.

This should open up the temp directory that your machine uses. Please delete all files that are found there. If you get an error when deleting a file, skip that file and delete all the others. If you had trouble deleting a file, reboot into Safe Mode and follow this step again. You should now be able to delete all the files.

Step 2: Delete Temporary Internet Files
Now I want you to open up Internet Explorer, and click on the Tools menu and then Internet Options. At the General tab, which should be the first tab you are currently on, click on the Delete Files button and put a checkmark in Delete offline content. Then press the OK button. This may take quite a while, so do not be alarmed with how long it takes. When it is done, your Temporary Internet Files will now be deleted.

Finally, and definitely the MOST IMPORTANT step, click on the following tutorial and follow each step listed there:

Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe and secure on the Internet


Glad I was able to help and if there any other problems related to your computer please feel free to post them in the appropriate forum. Though we help people with spyware and viruses here at BC, we also help people with other computer problems! Do not forget to tell your friends about us!
