Hey guys... ive just bought a new really good computer... and im using the same HDD as my old computer.. to keep my music and large files i cba to redownload/install.
I think its caused me alot of problems.. firsly i have this really annoying program "SurfSideKick" it just overrides my firefox... say i put in video.google.com this search engine comes over it... ive been given some advice on IRC about it going into the registery and deleting the files (because LavaSoft AD-Ware SE Personal cant remove it)
So he suggested i delete all those files and try using the software again.. but it didnt work, im kinda worried, because when i hear the word "Spyware" i see them looking at my credit card passwords etc... i would be really greatful if you could help me out on removing this "SSK" File.

thanks alot, poot

Surf Side Kick removal instructions can be found HERE.

For help with removing your infection I would like to refer you to the Highjack This (HJT) forum here at BleepingComputer.com:

First: Read the Preparation Guide found HERE. It is very important that you follow ALL of the instructions found within. (There are many important steps in this guide that may clean your computer.)

Second: Post your system information along with a brief description of the problems you are having, and your HJT log in the HJT forum found HERE.

NOTE: Please, after you post your HJT log DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post there will be 1 reply. The team member glancing over the replies might think someone is already helping you out and will not respond. So, just make your post and let it sit there until a team member responds. The volunteers who work that forum are very busy, so please be patient and wait. It can sometimes take a few days for a response. If after 5 days you still have gotten no response, then post a link to your HJT log HERE.

Third: If, after finishing your work with the folks at the HJT forum you have issues with Windows related to the removal of the infection, then come to the other forums and let us help you get your computer back to normal.

You are in good hands! Good luck!

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!
