Hi, im new to this site. To all the ppl that help, so Thank you in Advance

Ok, Im having this virus which i have no idea waht the name is. It adds various links to my favourites menu and puts 2 tool bars on my computer. One the is right above the start menu bar and another on my Internet exploer browser.

The links are named "Cool Stuff, Travel, Shopping Gifts, Internet and a few more"

Please help. I allready tried scanning with Adware, Spybot, Spy Sweaper, and Cwshreder

Oh by the way, In the Taskmanager the program that runs these toolbars and links is called " iexplore.exe "

ive looked up sooo many sites on Google but still no help.

Hi Ken, I checked with Google and found the following link that may help you out. It refers to the LOP virus and includes a link to a removal tool. I can't vouch for the onfo but you might want to take a look at it to see if it fits your situation.

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis Download Site

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program named hijackthis.exe. When the program opens click on the Config button, then click on the Misc Tools button, and click on the Check for update online button. When it completes checking/applying updates press the back button.

Now click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.

Create a reply to this post here and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.

Someone will reply to you after reading this post. DO NOT fix any entries unless you understand what you are doing.
