I was gone for a week, and when I came back, someone in my family had decided to get on my computer, bypass my password, and play on the computer, randomly downloading games off the internet. I cleaned it up as much as possible, removing the other 327 spyawre that I could and whatnot using PestPatrol and NOD32 (both registered and fully updated). I did that a few times, and each time I ran PestPatrol, it seemed that one called "Spywarequake 2.0 Directory" kept coming back, thus, I thought it was a possibility that it was it. I alo checked my BlackICE logs to see if I could get anything from that, but no avail. Here's my Hijack This! Log.

* You may want to print out or make a copy of these instructions before starting, because you will not be able to connect to the internet during most of this fix.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on the Java Icon (coffee cup) in the Control Panel.
  • It will say "Java Plug-in" under the icon.
    Please find the update button or tab in the Java Control Panel. Update your Java then reboot.
  • If you are unable to update you can manually update by going here:
    http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
* Download smitRem.exe and save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

* Please download, install, and update the free version of Ewido Security Suite:
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
  • When you run Ewido for the first time, you will get a warning "Database could not be found!". Click OK. We will fix this in a moment.
  • From the main Ewido screen, click on update in the left menu, then click the Start update button.
  • After the update finishes, the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful"
  • Exit Ewido. DO NOT run a scan yet.
* If you do not already have Ad-Aware SE 1.06 installed, follow these download and setup instructions. Also check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Again, do NOT run a scan yet.


* Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
* open hijackthis and put a check next to the following:
