Hi there,
hoping theres someone out there thats had the same problem as me, adverts under the name of CID as found there way onto my favorites. Right clicked to delete them and tool bar comes up in a box, won't delete. When I'm on line the adverts just keep poping up, any ideas out there.

(Moderator edit: topic moved to more appropriate forum. jgw)

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? Have your tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?

Download and scan with SUPERAntiSypware Free for Home Users.
Download and scan with Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06. Setup & Configure as shown here.
Download and scan with Spybot S&D 1.4. Setup & Configure as shown here - (do not choose the option to install TeaTimer)

If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 in "SAFE MODE".
(This is Ewdio 4.0 renamed. If you already have Ewido installed, please update to this version which has a special "clean driver" for removing persistent malware.) Be sure to print out and follow the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions.

Then perform this online Virus scan: Trend Micro Housecall <- Use "Autoclean" and manually delete what it can't clean.

Post back if your still having problems afterwards.

I think you have a lop infection.

Please Download NoLop to your desktop from the below...
http://www.spywareedge.net/nolop/NoLop.exe


First close any other programs you have running as this will require a reboot
Double click NoLop.exe to run it
Now click the button labelled "Search and Destroy"
<>
When scanning is finished you will be prompted to reboot only if infected, Click OK
Now click the "REBOOT" Button.
The tool may not remove all of the Lop infection. Post a Hijack This log in the Hijack This forum by following the instructions in the link below. Do not post the log in this forum.
