I constanly (every few seconds new one) have the annoying popup windows "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close".
And when I am shutting down my computer I always see the message "OdFanMan.exe DLL initialization failed"

My last Hijack this log file:

I still have the same old and a few new problems

Odfanman.exe (certainly a spy) could not be deleted by used antispy programs and I found it in folder "../Program Files/Reamaker" together with ace.dll, atl.dll, rnrscp32.exe and other files, which were never found or deleted with antispy software. If I remove this file "Odfanman.exe" I am not able to start Windows in normal mode (system crashes) and only safe mode is possible.

During last week I used Ad-Aware, SpyBot, Spy Sweeper, Ewido and other software including Microsoft's AntiSpy Beta 1 and removed few (may be hundred !!) spy programs from my computer

Hello vierof and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. If that is the entire HijackThis log I am surprised the machine even starts up. there is nothing in it.

Let's try a different scanner and see what it shows us.

Download WinPFind.zip and unzip the contents to the C:\ folder.

Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the boot menu appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.
  • Press the Enter key.
Locate the c:\winpfind\winpfind.exe file and double-click it to run it. Now click the Start Scan button to begin the scan.

When the scan is complete reboot normally and post the WinPFind.txt file (located in the WinPFind folder) back here along with a new HijackThis log and I will review the information when it comes in.

I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.
