I run Spybot over and over and I'm never able to get rid of COSMI, which it tells me is a problem. Spybot is unable to fix it unless I reboot, but it keeps returning anyway. I've tried in Safemode as well. Is it really a problem? And If so, how do I get rid of it.

Here's my log. -- COSMIPROBLEM - Duosfriend

Hi :thumbsup:

Download System Security Suite here:
System Security Suite Download & Tutorial. Unzip it to your desktop.
Install the program. Don't use it yet.


Run HijackThis!, press Scan, and put a check mark next to all these:

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = c:\windows\SYSTEM\blank.htm

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {E434D3C7-A673-4100-8140-79C020945017} - (no file)
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {53829F91-1B06-4DB9-B13E-812A986169F9} - (no file)



These are restrictions. Leave them unchecked if these were set by you using a software like Spybot Search & Destroy, SpywareBlaster or another similar protection software, or if these were set by your system administrator.
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions present

Close all other windows and browsers, and press the Fix Checked button.


With all windows and browsers closed.
