Hey. My machine became the latest to succumb to attacks from AntiVermins today.

I checked out the instructions to manually remove AntiVermins from my machine, but the only file I could find in my \system32 folder was . . .
C:\Windows/System32/cwgppb.dll

The other 9 .dll files listed in those instructions were not found.


Also, I had tried to download Ad-Aware SE personal edition to my machine, but every time I click the download link on Lavasoft's website, the AntiVermin program on my system automatically redirects the page to an IE 404 error page that reads "This page cannot be displayed." I need help, because I really don't have the extra cash at the moment to purchase a licensing agreement from another company. I used Ad-Aware at my old place of business, and the sucker was as good as gold, but now I'm being blocked from downloading it.

Suggestions? Please help ASAP!!

Suggest you follow the directions in the link below. Use the automated fix. It was updated 2 days ago.

Yes, I've tried that. However, the license agreement is something I do not have the money for at this moment, so I cannot actually REMOVE the files from my computer.

I wanted to see if there was a way someone could get around the program if they haven't already installed Ad-Aware SE, or if there's another completely free program available online somewhere.

Are you saying that AdAware SE has quarantined some files? What license are you referring to? AdAware SE is available free.
I saw no mention in the automated or manual instructions of AdAware SE. Have you run the Smitfraud fix?
As the instructions state, if you are still infected or having problems you can post a Hijack This log in the appropriate forum by following the instructions in the link below.

Okay, re-read this section from my first entry.

Also, I had tried to download Ad-Aware SE personal edition to my machine, but every time I click the download link on Lavasoft's website, the AntiVermin program on my system automatically redirects the page to an IE 404 error page that reads "This page cannot be displayed." I need help, because I really don't have the extra cash at the moment to purchase a licensing agreement from another company. I used Ad-Aware at my old place of business, and the sucker was as good as gold, but now I'm being blocked from downloading it.


There ARE no details in the manual or automatic removal regarding Ad-Aware. What I'm saying is that Ad-Aware is one of those completely free programs that does an excellent job of removing spyware, and right now, the AntiVermins programs are keeping me from being able to download it.

HOWEVER, the tech support guy at my church told me about a program called ZoneAlarm, which is available at www.zonelabs.com, that has a 15-day trial version that detects AND removes spyware, and also includes a firewall. So far, I've installed that and am about to run a scan on that to remove the AntiVermins data, if it will do so. I'll post an update when it's done.

The smitfraudfix in the self-help guide was specifically created for dealing with smithfraud infections which include AntiVermins, AntiVerminser, or AntiVermeans while ZoneAlarm is not. I recommend you follow the automated removal instructions. All the files listed in the manual removal section may not be present on your system.
