All of the sudden either yesterday or the day before I got a pop up window asking me to get Imesh. Thing is its an Internet explorer pop-up and it shows up even when its not running, I even looked in task manager to make sure. I have tried several diffferent spyware/malware removal software and thought I got rid of it but it popped up again today.
I did a screen shot so to show what I mean.

I tried searching my registry for anything that had Imesh in it and nothing was found. Please help very annoying. thanks.

Well turns out when I did the search it was done the wrong way. I found this in my registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\WMHelperiMesh.WMHelper
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\WMHelperiMesh.WMHelper.1
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\WMHelperiMesh.WMHelper\CurVer (Default=WMHelperiMesh.WMHelper.1)

what do I do? Do I just delete those keys or are there any files that go with them?

Hi David and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer!

First of all, do NOT mess with the registry, unless you know what you are doing!! You can cause irrepairable damage to your system by doing so!

Lets start simple here, did you look in Add/Remove programs for I-mesh related programs? If there are, uninstall them.


MALWAREBYTES ANTIMALWARE
-------------------------------------------
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Full Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files.
  • Right-click on mbam.exe, rename it to myscan.exe.
  • Double-click on myscan.exe to launch the program.
  • If that did not work, then try renaming and change the .exe extension in the same way as noted above.
  • Double-click on myscan.scr (or whatever extension you renamed it) to launch the program.
If using Windows Vista, refer to How to Change a File Extension in Windows Vista.

regards, Elise

I actually already ran that program, the registry keys are still there but haven't seen the pop-up yet. theres no set time when it does show up so who knows. Also there are not any Imesh related programs that I know of, could u possibly list some other than the obvious imeshV what ever.

Its quite late here and I can't type a lot (duh, cut my finger quite bad...), so I will come back to you tomorrow morning.

regards, Elise

By not removing everything MBAM found, you leave active infections on your system!!! If you want to do so, its your own choice, but I can tell you that you will keep having problems that will go worse.
