Hello all,

New to this here site. Came across it while trying to find online advice on how to fix some computer-related complications that i've recently been subjected to. Site says make an introduction, so here i am.

Name's Jason i'm turnin' 22 this year. I'm not computer illiterate, but i struggle with maintaining my computer's stability... (stupid pests, viruses and the like).

My most recently dilemma came from (i believe) a game i downloaded off of kazaa called Blasterball. There was pest warning prior to installation which i regrettably ignored. Now my system is suffering from constant pop-up "blooping" or beeping noises, strange icons that pop up on my desktop (free ringtones, mp3s, adult finder, etc), a favourites list that cannot be modified in any way and a toolbar that is annoying to get rid of.

Anyways, whilst searching up methods of removal, i stumbled upon a HijackThis referral and followed the instructions to remove a seemingly similar pest. It worked for about 20 minutes and then all the icons and favourites and toolbars came back!

That is why i am here now, throwing myself at the mercy of those more competant than i and sincerely hoping that at least one of you will empathize with me.


Please and thank you.

Welcome to BC!
Although I cannot quite sympathize with problems resulting from P2P downloading, I suggest you post a HJT log to the log forum for our great volunteer team to review and help you rid yourself of the malware that most likely came with your game downloaded. Expect such problems if you continue to use P2P.
Please read and follow the instructions posted here:

John

You might want to check your signature and include the closing tags.

sounds like you have got the dreaded se.dll virus - it will get worse and worse - you can look in C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temp and if se.dll is there you are gubbed

I use Xoftspy and have scheduled it to run automataically every day to zap it and others - it keeps it under control but it keeps coming back - whoever wrote that virus is a genius - a mad bad genius and a pain in the ass

Is Xoftspy freeware/shareware by chance? :thumbsup:
