Please help. I keep getting popups to download. I have updated and ran ad-aware, spybot, spyware blaster, microsoft ASW beta, AVG but no go. I keep fixing via ad-aware, tracking cookies but they keep coming back and popups keep coming back. I have XP with SP2.

Here is my HJT.

This appears to be the same log I just replied to at TSF > http://www.techsupportforum.com/showthread.php?t=72415

Please do not post the same problem at multiple forums. If you would prefer, I could have that thread at TSF closed.

Kindly let me know.

BTW FWIW I have checked everything in the startup for the sake of fixing this problem. When we are done I will only check ones that are absolutely necessary.

Another thing. Everytime I boot I get an error message regarding CWShredder that says "CWShredder has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for inconvenience.

Send error report ----- Don't send.



Should I just get rid of CWShredder ? It has never ran successfully for me.

Some questions...
Did you use the fix I gave you at TSF? If so, ViewPoint should have been uninstalled & fixed. Have you done so?

Adware:adware/startpage.aiw No disinfected Windows Registry

This is an orphaned entry. It's an entry in your Registry that references a non existant file. It's perfectly harmless without the accompanying file. Panda detects it but does not pinpoint the location of the said entry. If it had provided the location, we may have it removed via manual Registry editing. I do not recommend that you rummaged through the Registry looking for this entry. We do not want to risk causing irrepairable damage to the Registry.

Your system is clean. You may remove CWShredder. It's not required anymore

Now that your system is clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • CLEAR & RESET SYSTEM RESTORE'S CACHE
    Go to Start >> Run - type control sysdm.cpl,,4 & press Enter
    • Tick on the checkbox - Turn off System Restore on all drives
    • Click Apply
    Turn it back 'On' by unticking the same checkbox & click OK


  • DISABLE THE VIEWING OF SYSTEM FILES
    From Windows Explorer, go to Tools>Folder Options> View tab.
    • Untick - Show hidden files and folder
    • Tick - Hide file extensions for known types
    • Tick - Hide protected operating system files
    Click Yes to confirm & then click OK


  • SECURING INTERNET EXPLORER
    From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Internet Options.
    • Select the Security tab
      • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
      • Select Custom Level .
        • Change 'Download signed ActiveX controls' to Prompt
        • Change 'Download unsigned ActiveX controls' to Disable
        • Change 'Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe' to Disable
        • Change 'Installation of desktop items' to Prompt
        • Change 'Launching programs and files in an IFRAME' to Prompt
        • Change 'Navigate sub-frames across different domains' to Prompt
        • When all these changes have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Select OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE
    It is very important that you have anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

    It is imperative that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.


  • FIREWALL
    Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. A tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones can be found here.


  • Microsoft Windows Update
    Visit windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer always has the latest security updates. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.


  • SPYBOT - SEARCH & DESTROY
    Download and install Spybot - Search & Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with the program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here


  • AD-AWARE
    Download and install Ad-Aware. You should use this program to scan your computer on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here


  • SPYWAREBLASTER
    SpywareBlaster prevents the installation of malicious ActiveX, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software. Blocks spyware/tracking cookies & restricts the actions of potentially unwanted sites.

    Unlike other programs, SpywareBlaster does not have to remain running in the background. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here


  • IE-SPYAD
    IE/Spyad places more than 4000 dubious websites and domains in the IE Restricted list. This severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites. A tutorial on installing this product can be found here


  • MVPS HOST FILE
    The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one that will restrict known ad sites form serving you unsolicited advertisements. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is the IP of your local computer. It can be downloaded here - MVPS Hosts file
Update all these programs regularly. Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically. Here are some additional utilities that will further enhance your safety.
  • Trillian or Miranda-IM - These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)

  • Weather Watcher - Free taskbar weather program that is free, malware free, and resource light.

  • Firefox - Use this alternate browser. Whilst Internet Explorer is not a bad browser, almost every exploit crafted is targeted to take advantage of an IE weakness.

  • Sun's Java - It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine.

  • Google Toolbar - Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.

  • CleanUP! - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.

  • ERUNT - A useful freeware utility for users of Windows 2000/XP. It's made up of two parts - ERUNT & NTREGOPT.

    ERUNT will create daily complete backups of your computer's Registry. Whilst System Restore does the same thing, a corrupt registry file may prevent Windows from booting & this effectively renders disables System Restore. With ERUNT, you're able to restore the damaged Registry.


    NTREGOPT works by recreating each registry hive "from scratch", thus removing any slack space that may be left from previously modified or deleted keys. In other words, it compacts the Registry to a small size which allows Windows to load & perform faster.
  • Winpatrol - Download and install the free version of Winpatrol.
    A tutorial for this product is located here:
    Using Winpatrol to protect your computer from malicious software
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein

After doing all these, your system will be optimised against future threats.

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder in a couple weeks if everything is working okay.
Have a safe & happy computing day. Posted Image

As far as AVS:

Only realtime protection I have is spyware blaster. Should I have something else ? Spybot and ad-aware only works when you manually scan yourself.

I already have Zonealarm firewall. And I believe 2wire modem also has built in firewall.

I update windowsupdate regularly. But I plan to switch to mozilla exclussively. I still have to open up I/E once in a while and update, right ?

Oh can you also tell me which start programs are essential so I can turn off the others ?

No reward is necessary. I do this for the pleasure of being able to help others. If you wish, please support Bleepings by clicking here

Disabling/re-enabling System Restore will flush System Restore's cache & create a new & clean restore point.
By doing so, we are getting rid of whatever infected files that may have got included in there. This ensures that you start with a clean slate. :thumbsup:

With regards for antivirus, I noted that you have AVG. That's good. Just remember to update it periodically & maintan real time montoring.

ZA is a good firewall to have. The modem's firewall will do the bulk of the work & ZA shall draw very little of your resources. Where ZA is different is that it monitors outgoing traffic. You will be alerted if any strange process attempts to connect to the internet.

You have MS Antispyware for real time monitoring of adware/spyware. I personally prefer Ad-aware's Adwatch .

You should also use passive protection like IE-SpyAD, MVPS host file & Spyware Blaster. These files/programs only need to run once in a blue moon. They do not use any of your computer's resources. They will create a long list of entries in your Registry that'll prevent you from accidentally visiting any known bad sites.

Comeon sUBs. What's your email addy ?

Seriously though I thank you very much. This is my nephew's PC. He is too young to understand any of this and his dad has no clue about computers. I am vising for a couple of days which is why I was in a hurry to fix it for him. I go back home manana and if my own PC which is an oldie (98SE) has any junk on it I know where to post my problems. Thanks again.
