Diet Patch Pop Up and HiJack This

Q: Diet Patch Pop Up and HiJack This

Hi,

I have a friend who has the Diet Patch pop up ad on his computer and I cannot get rid of it. I've tried using AdAware, and Spybot to remove it without success, and then recently read about HiJack This on your forum. I've made a copy of the HiJack log file and was hoping someone would be able to walk me through this process. Thanks in advance for all of your help and time!

Preferred Solution: Diet Patch Pop Up and HiJack This

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Restart to safe mode.

How to start your computer in safe mode
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT...01052409420406

Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start > Search and under "More advanced search options".
Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

Next click on My Computer. Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

Now find and delete (you can use windows search tool)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\PjiNj.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\Nem85.exe
OjqN9Y44.exe

Also in safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box. The Temp folder will open. Click Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


Empty the Recycle Bin

Go here http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
and do an online virus scan.

Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the exact file name and file location so you can delete it yourself.

Recently my computer has been displaying diet patch adds (and they talk, urgh). But now, a few weeks later, I have been getting program like Shopping Wizard on my computer. I have run Hijack this and have tried to clean up the clearly faulty info, but it keeps coming back. Could someone please help me?

CWShredder found nothing, nor did Mcaffee. I tried running SPybot, but it freezes one me. I reinstalled it and added the patch from MajorGeeks.com, but it still freezes on me when I try and fix the problems it finds.

Here is my Hijack this log: I twould be great if someone could tell me what to delete.

A:Diet Patch, Shopping Wizard, and other problems-Please Help Me With a Hijack This Log

Welcome to TSF.

Please don't post your email address in the forum since we have lots of spammers here.

Make sure to update Windows and Internet Explorer at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

A:My Diet Patch Ad Pop Up Please Help

Hello, and welcome to TSF.

A couple of infections there; we'll use the tools, first.

You have the Peper infection. Download PeperUninstall. Make sure you are connected online to run this program. Run it once and reboot. Then run it again for the second time. Download PeperFix and save it to your Desktop. Run it and click Find and Fix (reboot if prompted).

Download CWShredder and click on Fix (it will automatically fix anything it finds for you). If it asks if you want to delete a certain random file, choose No and post that filename here.

Please download Ad-aware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Go to this site to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. To run this tool, go into Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection. Also make sure to customize the settings in Ad-aware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

Then, reboot and post a new HJT log

A:my diet patch pop-up

Hi and Welcome to TSF

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run ad-aware SE with VX2 add-on cleaner, Spybot Search & Destroy (with updated database) and CWShredder as these programs will clean a lot of the crap out first. All links to programs are in my signature. Ok..on to the log?..


Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled. Also make sure that the System Files and Folders are showing/visible also. Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore.

Reboot into Safe Mode (hit F8 key until menu shows up). Make sure to close any open browsers. Go into HijackThis->Config->Misc. Tools->Open process manager. Select the following and click Kill process for each one if they are still listed (they shouldn't be but make sure)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\Sktempdm.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\Tovs.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\Tovs.exe

Check and fix the following in HijackThis if they still exist (make sure you do not miss an entry)

I've done the adaware, spybot, and cwshredder. I use mozilla, but need to keep IE for a couple of work programs.

Dear Experts, 

I have few queries :

i started patching from Oct 2017 ) and i believe this June 2017 IE patch requires below registry key to be present , which they are not :
The following registry key is missing.
This registry key is required to enable the fix for CVE-2017-8529:
SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_ENABLE_PRINT_INFO_DISCLOSURE_FIX\iexplore.exe
SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_ENABLE_PRINT_INFO_DISCLOSURE_FIX\iexplore.exe
My Query is - 
Does the installation of the superseding patch adds/updates the registry keys required for the patch it supersedes.In this case should  the successfull installation of April 2018 IE patch be adding these registry keys required for June 2017 IE patch.
if not  is there any documentation related to this ?

Q: Diet 7

Hello all,

Well, I need some help here. I produce music with several software and hardware, audio interfaces, synths and software synths. Now, I'll try to use and test Windows 7 on this, under serious works. Since I use MAC for that, my windows laptop has no GREAT hardware, but I think it will do the work. Core 2 Duo 1,6 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 120 HD.

So this is what I need: to clean an installation of Windows 7 to keep it as light as possible. I mean, no internet or networks, so, no antivirus or firewall. Disable AS MUCH AS IT CAN BE DISABLED to run heavy apps FAST. As I did one time on XP, I managed to get like 120 MB of RAM used and 17 processes running in a very stable system to work with. I want to do the same with 7 and test stability of system, since I and many people use their laptops to play live shows, this info could be really useful, as well as DPC latencies and other stuff.

In Xp I disabled services, installed just the necessary drivers, disabled networks and kept the color display at 16 bit. I think that Win 7 should not be that different: disable services, etc. BUT, I see that it installs network drivers automatically and enables that. I don't want that. I also plan to disable windows aero.

Any ideas? Thanks!

A:Diet 7

Well you can most likely disable network drivers and just about anything else.

But to be honest 7 is very stable at least in the 7000 build and considering it is still in beta by the time the real version comes out I am sure it will run very fast regardless of what you have running.

On a fresh start up using 4gigs of ram windows 7 with everything enabled uses just under 1gig.

Point being that even if you leave it stock settings it is going to be very very stable and fast.

Unauthorized Patch For Microsoft WMF Bug Sparks Controversy

Sober worm may hit tomorrow, but businesses are more concerned about the WFM vulnerability and Microsoft's inability to produce a patch this week. Some are choosing an alternative that could lead to other problems.

By Larry Greenemeier
InformationWeek

Jan 4, 2006 01:00 PM

Concerns over the lack of a Microsoft-issued patch have pushed the Windows Metafile/Zero-Day bug to top of mind, surpassing even tomorrow's much-anticipated Sober worm attack.

The lag time between the Dec. 27 discovery of the WMF vulnerability and Microsoft's planned Jan. 10 patch availability has forced IT security departments to find alternative means for protecting their systems and prompted a non-Microsoft developer to create a patch that others could use.

All of this serves to damage Microsoft's reputation as a company that can secure its own products—a reputation that only recently was beginning to improve after years of being dragged through the mud. Experts are divided over whether it's wise to use Ilfak Guilfanov's Hexblog patch to fix the WMF vulnerability, which could allow attackers to use WMF images to execute malicious code on their victims' computers. Some say it's a necessary measure to protect systems until the official Microsoft patch arrives; others say it's not worth the extra work to patch twice or to take the risk of using a third-party fix.

Windows 7 on a Diet, to Match the Hardware Requirements of the Vista Hog

Under the leadership of Steven "Don't Call Me Transparent" Sinofsky, Senior Vice President, Windows and Windows Live Engineering Group, Microsoft will no longer repeat the five year gap between Windows XP and Windows Vista, or the mistakes done with the latest Windows client. The first sign that the Windows 7 apple will drop fat from the Windows Vista tree is the fact that the next iteration of Windows, due at the end of 2009, will be tailored for the same hardware infrastructure as XP's successor.

Rather than being a re-write of Microsoft's proprietary operating system, Windows 7
will simply build on top of Windows Vista's graphics, audio, and storage subsystems. At the same time, the Vista kernel will evolve into Windows 7's core, as Sinofsky and Christopher Flores, Director Windows Communications denied that Microsoft is building a new kernel from the ground up. Windows 7 will indeed feature an advanced model of componentization and a new kernel architecture, but it will do it by straying only superficially from what Vista is today.

"While these changes will increase our engineering agility, they will not impact the user experience or reduce application or hardware compatibility. In fact, one of our design goals for Windows 7 is that it will run on the recommended hardware we specified for Windows Vista and that the applications and devices that work with Windows Vista will be...

Hi,

Basically what i'm trying to do is to record my diet for a 7 day period in excel for bodybuilding.

For this I thought it would be good if i could have a big table of all the food with their protein, carb and calorie content stored, so that when filling in my food diary, i could just choose one of the foods from a drop-down list and all the nutritional info would come up next to it and be totalled up for the whole day.

I've done excel in school, but that was a while ago, so i'm a bit rusty!

Any help you can give would be really helpful!

Thanks a lot, Theo

I wanted to "give back" and try and help someone else after getting so much good advice from this forum.

Last Saturday night I was working on my Acer 7750 laptop that I got back in April, I was on Facebook and just waiting for a pizza to be delivered, I had a full solo cup filled with Diet Coke and a good amount of ice sitting a bit further back from my laptop, but next to it, when suddenly I thought I heard a car door slam, and knowing that I have to put my dog away before I answer the door, I jumped up quickly and my hand hit the glass of diet coke, and suddenly before my eyes diet coke was flooding the center of my keyboard, I grabbed my laptop up quick, unplugged the adapter, and flung the pop off my laptop, grabbed paper towels and started blotting up the evil liquid. I got it as dry as I could and then shut the lid of the laptop, and placed the laptop on a chair since the pizza man was knocking on the door, neglecting to take out the battery. I was very upset figuring I just killed it, there was enough pop on the keys to believe it plus several years ago I had killed my hubby's laptop with the same substance and it immediately died.

As soon as I paid the pizza guy, I grabbed the laptop and I tried to type something and it was working fine. I STILL did not remove the battery, just shut it off!! I wrongly thought I was out of the woods so I happily ate pizza. About a half hour later I went back to my laptop and to my horror my keyboard was now typing gib... Read more

A:Solved: My Acer 7750 Laptop SURVIVED a Diet Coke Spill

If you ever do it again take the battery out and quickly swill the keyboard with a little distilled water to wash the sticky coke away, Clean distilled water will not usually harm electronics providing there is no power until it has completely dried out.

Sticky drinks will leave stuff behind when they dry out so it is better to swill them out with (even) clean rainwater if you haven't got distilled water

This is a fix for people who have trouble playing Age of Empires 2 Age of Kings Gold Edition after installing the game. You start the game and select all your options, where the actually gameplay should begin the game crashes with some "send error report error" this error pertains to some *.icd file crashing.

As you probably already know, there is no point in installing patch 2.0a because Gold Edition seems to already come patched. The fix is to download and install patch 2.0b the keyword is the letter "B". I didn't see this patch on the Microsoft website but its out there just do a search. The file name is actually "patch_ aok2.0b" good luck.

HAPPY GAMING!!!

UPDATE....THIS FIX GETS TH GAME STARTED BUT THE GAME ONLY WORKS FOR A WHILE THEN IT CRASHES WITH A AGE2.EXE ERROR. BUMMER.
