I've done all the preparation work suggested, plus ran my Registry Mechanic, the cwshredder, did all the spyware scans, virus scans, no luck. Nothing seems to pick it up on scans.
The popup ads are driving me nuts and slowing things down., I really need help removing this. Keep in mind, I'm a senior and don't have a lot of experience with a PC
Thank you, for any suggestions. Carole/tolelady

Hello Carole,

Welcome to BleepingComputer!

My name is Nick and I will be checking over your log.

Let's get started.

You will want to print or save these instructions.

Moving HijackThis to a permanent folder
  • Since HijackThis makes backups of any entries you fix, you should create a folder just to hold the HijackThis program and its backups, so the backups and the program are not accidentally deleted.
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Double-Click on C:/.
  • Select the File menu and select New > Folder
  • Name the folder "HijackThis" or "HJT"
  • Move the HijackThis.exe exacutable into the new folder
Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.
O2 - BHO: RieMon Class - {70F6A776-579A-4C95-BA88-134253907752} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\irsmebbf.dll
O2 - BHO: Glitch - {C3F699FD-5F86-451B-8150-81979857047E} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\nsd23.dll
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [irssyncd] C:\WINDOWS\system32\irssyncd.exe
Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked. Reboot into safe mode.

Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

Please delete these files using Windows Explorer(if present):
C:\WINDOWS\system32\irsmebbf.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\nsd23.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\irssyncd.exe

After that, Reboot.

Please go HERE to run Panda's ActiveScan
  • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
  • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
  • Enter your Country
  • Enter your State/Province
  • Enter your e-mail address and click send
  • Select either Home User or Company
  • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location. Post the contents of the ActiveScan report along with a fresh HijackThis log.
Thanks,
Nick :thumbsup:

My PC is running just great now.

I have no way of making a donation by Paypal and I'd truly like to show my appreciation
for your magical touch (I was so desparate for help with no way to turn, after a couple of days of
searching for answers online)

If there is a way, young man, that I can send a few dollars otherwise to do my small part to help out?

Again, thank you so much for your help and it was also so quick, it amazed me, you made the impossible look so easy to a newbie as myself.

Glad to hear everything is running smoothly :thumbsup:

Money isn't important. A simple thank you makes my work here worthwhile. :flowers:

Everything looks great, your HijackThis log appears to be CLEAN!!!

Here is a list of tools I like to suggest to users to prevent future infections.
  • Spybot Search & Destroy - Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.
  • AdAware -Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.
  • SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
  • SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.
  • IE-SpyAd - Puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
  • 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.
  • Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  • Google Toolbar - Free google toolbar that allows you to use the powerful Google search engine from the bar, but also blocks pop up windows.
  • 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)
  • Firefox- Internet Explorer is NOT the most secure browser. I highly recommend Firefox as a safer alternative.
