Hi,
I suspect very few people use XP now, so maybe I wont get much response here. I hope
I am posting in the correct area also. Anyway I downloaded Emsisoft from here for what
google tells me is an infection of my computer.
I searched 'Binkiland' on this site to no avail and so just went ahead and downloaded
the Emsisoftware to hopefully search and destroy any bugs.
It opens a small black box (100mm x100mm) for a split second and goes off again. I downloaded it
a second time to be sure it was all there (168MB) and it was/is. Ive tried right clicking and using
various menu commands including the unblock one. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi,

Thanks very much for your help. I kept calling back to the site but my post shown '0' views, so not knowing about

this reply I actually downloaded  ADWCleaner. It came up with two lines or files that I think were meant to be infections.

I am not sure what I pressed after that but a log file was produced afterwards. 

Binkiland still opens when I use chrome but it seems to have cleared from firefox - which introduced it via an update

but now seems to run a lot faster!

 

I will start again as per your advicew above, hopefully I have not made the situation worse.

 

Thanks

Dave

All the other tools were clean?

Did you look in Control Panel / Add/remove and see if Binkiland was there?

Look in Chromes plugins for items to disable...

From initial advice on google I used (or tried to use) Add/Remove. At first I thought I had

success, with hindsight I am not sure. i.e. I seem to have lost the delete part now!

When I found Binkiland in Add/Remove and clicked on it another pop up box appeared

(small redish colour) with delet in it. I clicked it and remember getting some kind of error

warning - sorry can't remember what. I continued and deleted Binkiland.

I has completely disapeared from within Add/Remove programs, but if I click on any programs

now within Add/Remove, the option to delete does not appear. Inacfact apart from the selected

program greying out nothing happens whatever I press now! Binkiland still opens if I use chrome.

but not if I use firefox, as I said no problems, infact it seems to have gone a bit faster.

No such luck. I bought this computer/laptop second hand. It does everything I want which is not very demanding

untill now. I run a free edition of avast on it and it is a HP Pavilion dv 800. I never thought of using avast browser scanner

until typing this just now, I'm sure there is a browser scanner in the tools section of it.

I will try it and get back!

Let try running this and maybe we won't need the disk.


Download Windows Repair (All in One) from this site

Install the program then run it.

NOTE 1. In Windows Vista, 7 and 8 right click on the program, click "Run As Administrator".
NOTE 2. Disable your antivirus program before running Windows Repair.


Go to Step 3 and click on Check button next to 1. See If Check Disk Is Needed.
If the tool indicates that the Check Disk is needed click on Do It button next to 2. Check Disk, then restart your computer.

Once the above is done, go to Step 4 and allow it to run System File Check by clicking on the Do It button.

1406373250-4-o.png


Go to Step 5 and under"System Restore" click on Create button.

1406373259-5-o.png


Go to Start Repairs tab and click the Start button.

1406373267-start1-o.png


Leave the check marks as they are.
NOTE for Windows 8 users. Reset Registry Permissions is NOT checked by design.

Click on Start Repairs button.

1406373275-start2-o.png


After the repair finished, you may be prompted to restart the computer. Please allow it to do so.

Please post the Windows Repair log which is located in the following folder:
64-bit systems - C:\Program Files (x86)\Tweaking.com\Windows Repair (All in One)\Logs
32-bit systems - C:\Program Files\Tweaking.com\Windows Repair (All in One)\Logs
