Hello Everyone

This is my first post, so any help will be very much appreciated!

I googled my dilemma and i found a post made in a topic called 'HijackThis Logs and Analysis' very useful, however when i tried a few things on my system, i was unable to find certain files and entries.

How can i get rid of this horrible pop up forever?
How do i go about getting a log file to show you the problem?

Welcome to Bleeping Computer system_clean_up,

Our Hijack Team will assist you in removing the CiD pop-ups.
Please read and follow the instructions in this topic; Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log .
When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, Not Here.

After posting a log you should not make any changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member.

If you haven't heard back from them in 5 days, go to this topic, Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?, and carefully follow all directions.

Reflect, repent, and reboot.

CiD is associated with the LOP parasite and comes with numerous bundles of software.

Do you have Netpumper installed? If so, uninstall it via start > controlpanel > software > add/remove programs. This because Netpumper is bundled with the malware you are dealing with (lop).
Also look if next are present in software > add/remove programs and uninstall them:

CiD Help
Download Plugin for Internet Explorer
Zone Media

Then reboot. Important!

After reboot,

* Download Deljob.exe and save it on your desktop.
Doubleclick Deljob.exe.
In case infected, you'll get a message that "Suspicious files" are found.
When the suspicious files look similar like: B2D78CB491483981.job (random numbers and letters),
then select option 2 by typing 2 and hit enter.

A log, (logit.txt) should open afterwards. This log will be present on your desktop
Post the contents of the logfile and a HijackThis log by following Tmack's instructions in the Hijack This forum. Not In This Forum.
