Hello,

Somehow I have an ad for a spyware remover on my desktop and can't get rid of it. I have tried Norton and Ad-Aware SE and it is still there. The ad says " Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer. View the list of top spyware removers here" The last line is linked to a website. I am attaching the view source below in case that helps you any.

Hi and welcome to Bleeping Computer! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. :thumbsup:

In order to help you we need to see what's running on your computer.

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Failing to respond back to the person that is giving up their own time to help you not only is insensitive and disrespectful, but it guarantees that you will never receive help from me again. Please thank your helpers and there will always be help here when you need it!
