I have these unwanted green links on almost all of the website that I go to. When I hover the cursor over these links they say "hardcore porn" or "delete malicious spyware". More and more of these seem to be showing up everyday and I am not sure what to do about it. I clicked on a link by accident once and it sent me to this hotbar website. Please help.
Aloha!

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Run a scan and save the log file.

Copy the whole log and post it back here. Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless. Make sure to include the System information at the top of the log as well.

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad in order to assist you when carrying out the following instructions.

Go to My Computer >Tools >Folder Options >View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled. Also make sure that the System Files and Folders are showing / visible. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files option. Please do NOT change any of those settings until we finish the fixing process.

WeatherBug - it's adware. If you didn't install this yourself, uninstall it. If you did install it yourself, you may keep it and ignore any fixes/deletions listed below.

Reboot your system in Safe Mode (By repeatedly tapping the F8 key until the menu appears).

Click > Start > Control Panel > Add / Remove Programs and uninstall the following programs:

WeatherBug


Open Hijack This and click on Scan. Check the following entries (make sure you do not miss any)

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,SearchURL = http://www.isearch.com/index.php?app=SE&af...ODQ6NTo5&Terms=
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://www.isearch.com/index.php?app=SE&af...ODQ6NTo5&Terms=
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://www.isearch.com/index.php?app=SE&af...ODQ6NTo5&Terms=
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O2 - BHO: ohb - {285B5CCD-C3F0-4EB6-9632-7D0A3C3AF824} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\hsrb.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [qsbVg] C:\WINDOWS\yadkhn.exe
O9 - Extra button: WeatherBug - {AF6CABAB-61F9-4f12-A198-B7D41EF1CB52} - C:\Program Files\AWS\WeatherBug\Weather.exe (file missing) (HKCU)


Please remember to close all other windows, including browsers then click Fix checked.

Delete the following Folder indicated in BLUE if it still exists:

C:\Program Files\AWS


Delete the following Files indicated in RED if they still exist:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\hsrb.dll
C:\WINDOWS\yadkhn.exe


Reboot your system in Normal Mode.

Please use Panda ActiveScan at http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan. Give us the scanís log.

Please scan again with HijackThis to get a new log.
Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in 'y' if you agree. The 'result.txt' file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. You don't need to post the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

Now give us a new HijackThis Analyzer log, along with Panda ActiveScanís log, so we can make sure your system is clean.
