Hey there everybody-

I'm new to this forum. I got involved because I have some spyware on my computer that spybot S&D can't get rid of- it's a server4 bug that turns common words into links. This is my log below- can somebody help me?

Hello,

It's better to print out the next instructions or save it in notepad, because you also have to work in safe mode without networking support, so this page wouldn't be available then.
It is also important you don't miss a step and perform everything in the right order!!

* Please set your system to show all files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.

* Please download LSPfix and save it to the Desktop and unzip it.
Run LSPfix and place a check against the I know what I am doing checkbox.

Highlight every instance of newdotnet6_38.dll and move it from the Keep to the Remove panel. Be sure to move nothing other than newdotnet6_38.dll or you will loose your internet connection!

When done, click on Finish to exit the program; do not use the X in the top right-hand corner as nothing will happen!

REBOOT

* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = file:\\C:\WINDOWS\system32\Searchx.htm

* Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

* Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files/folders, and delete them if still present:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\browser4.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ativtmxx.exe (please don't delete atiptaxx.exe!!!)
C:\WINDOWS\System32\IEHost34.exe
C:\PROGRAM fILES\COMMON FILES\tsa <== folder

* Reboot your system.

Post back a fresh HijackThis log and I'll take another look.

If you had any problems with deleting files or noticed any other problems during your fix, let me also know in your next reply.

Thank you so much! I followed the directions you gave me and already I am seeing a difference- a positive one! This is a great program here! I am telling everybody else in my dorm about it, and they want to use it too.
Anyways, here is my updated HijackThis log:

Hi, I see a clean hijackthislog. :-)
No, you didn't miss a thing, you did great!

Perform a full scan with an updated Adaware SE and/or Spybot S&D to get rid of the leftovers.
If you don't have those programs yet, you can find the downloadlocations in my sig.

To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

Avoid illegal sites, because that's where most malware is present.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (Housecall and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

If you are having XP SP2, read here how to configure Security Features for Internet Explorer:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...xp/iesecxp.mspx

More info on how to prevent malware you can also find here (By Tony Klein)
