Hi Team,

I daily perform :- AVG Free anti Virus scan, Spybot Scan, Adaware scan, CCleaner temp file remover, Abexo Free Registry Cleaner and use Spyware Blaster. I am using ZoneAlarm Firewall as well.

Even after following you're guide to remove spyware each day I have one of the following appear when performing a Spybot scan :-

Statcounter
Adrevolver
Clickxxx

etc

How can I these programs be removed permanently from my system? If not can you advise which website service they relate to.


Here is a copy of my HiJackThis scan log file:-

Hello John,

I am SifuMike and I will be helping you. :thumbsup:


Your log looks clean but
Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.

Updating Java:
  • Download the latest version of  Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u1.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u1".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language  jre-6-windows-i586.exe and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
    Examples of older versions in Add or Remove Programs:
    Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2
    J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0
    J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u1-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.

Even after following you're guide to remove spyware each day I have one of the following appear when performing a Spybot scan :-

Statcounter
Adrevolver
Clickxxx
etc


These appear to be "Tracking Cookies" which are minor threats.
It would probably be helpful if you posted the actual log of the scan results you are questioning.
The log will not only show the actual detections and the nature of those detections that you observed but also show the version of Spybot you are running as well as the update level of the detection files used during that scan.

To produce the log and post the log:
Run another scan.
When the scan completes, right click on the results list, select "Copy results to clipboard".
Then paste those results (Ctrl+V) to a new post in this thread.
If I've saved you time & money,

Hi John,

Those are all Tracking cookies from Firefox. You get cookies from visiting web sites, and they are not dangerous. A cookie is a way for websites to store data between browser sessions.
A browser session is started when you open your web browser, and ends when you close it. Websites often save data to your computer in the form of cookies so that when you open up your browser again, all is not lost, and a website will simply load your cookie and you will still be logged in, etc.

For more information refer to Avanced Cookie Guide:
http://www.firefoxtutor.com/50/cookies-advanced/

Sometimes, Spybot has trouble removing them.

And then if you'd like to block third-party tracking cookies in Firefox, please see here:
http://www.spybot.info/en/faq/37.html




You can use CCleaner to get rid of them.

Open CCleaner, click on the Applications tab and make sure you have Mozilla/FireFox checked and Cookies checked.
