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.)


I purchased Windows 7 upgrade yesterday and tried to upgrade my Vista Home Premium to Windows 7. The install stopped with an error message that I needed to uninstall Google Toolbar and Microsoft Interactive Training before the upgrade could complete. But neither of those programs are listed in the Control Panel. I wrote to Windows 7 support and guess what, they wrote back that I needed to call an MS number and that I might be charged for the service. I HAVE TO PAY TO MS TO INSTALL MS SOFTWARE I PURCHASED? AND PAY TO UNINSTALL MS SOFTWARE THAT IS PREVENTING THE UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 7? Before I return the software and stay with this @$%#$ Vista I'll try one more time. Can anyone out there help me get rid of those two programs?


A:Remove Google Toolbar/Microsoft Interactive Training before Upgrade?

As you are finding, an in-place Upgrade is an inferior install which imports corruption from Vista into your new Win7.

It is much better to start fresh with a clean install. Back up your files, make your Vista Recovery Disks in case you ever want to restore to factory condition, then wipe the HD for cleanest slate:
SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

The installer is driver-complete, with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing can be found on the Support Downloads webpage for your model computer or device. Only change drivers if performance dictates, starting with chipset and display.

Install programs slowly to gauge performance after each. Don't let programs write themselves into msconfig>Startup as they become freeloaders on RAM/CPU to spy on you. I only allow AV and gadgets.

Run a lean mean AV which doesn't bloat your OS like free MS Security Essentials.

After it is done, clean and order your HD perfectly with state-of-the-art CCleaner ("Run Cleaner" and Registry tabs) then Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers monthly.

Then save a backup image externally so you never have to reinstall again, just reimage the HD or replacement in 15 minutes from DVD Repair console using stored image.

Ok so here is the run down.
My wife's boss hired me to remove adware from his computer. However, I cannot seem to find and remove the culprit. 
The adware has a very specific behavior. It seems to only activate when the user visits eCommerce sites. The ones visited by the owner are eBay, Worthpoint, Etsy and Groovshark(though grooveshark does not really count as eCommerce as far as I know). The popups exist only in the browser tab associated with these sites.
From what I have managed to find out from the popups themselves, they are "price peep" and "tt line".
How I have tried to remove the problem:
To date I have used spybot, webroot, and ad aware, in my attempts to remove the adware.
I have also looked up ways to remove these two "hijakers" but what I have found was useless since the instructions found state that there is a program that can be removed via add/remove software in windows 7. As well as a browser extension that one needs to be removed. Neither of these are true in this instance.
I would appreciate any help that ya'll can offer.
Thank you.

Never mind all. I found the culprit and was able to remove it, thanks to security task manager. It was mega browse.

Adaware. Open, cupdate the reference file, and scan, with deepscan on, when it detects them, check all of them, as well as anything else that comes up, and delete them. If one doesnt show up use Spybot S&D, http://security.kolla.de/

I've recently I believe I've contracted many things. I think I have multiple virues, adware, and possibly some spyware. I've used AVG, SpyBot, and Ad-Aware to try to get rid of these symptoms. I've solved some issues, but I still remain to recieve excessive pop ups. I think I got this from my flash drive. Every computer I put it in seems to screw up. Could you help me save my computer? and if possible is there a way I can save my flash drive w/o spreading virues and what not. Thankyou, for you time.


A:Adware - Can you please help me remove it?!

Hi tienxviet,You need to have your flash drive scanned at the same time you clean the infected computer you're working on. There's also a flash drive cleaning program, and I'll post the program for that below, however, please note that it's not fully reliable or always effective. You may need to reformat your flash drive. If you need to use an external medium for transferring the installation programs for antimalware programs, then use a read only cd and download the programs only from recommended download sites.It sounds like you have a lot of infections and they are of the type that can be cleaned out of your computer, so to begin with, please go through the instructions in This Topic and make a note of what works and what doesn't. When you finish with that, post in the HijackThis and Malware Removal Forum so they can help you get any remaining files out of your computer which may be left over. The problem with many viruses, is that they leave some files behind to get themselves started back up, and these need to be identified and removed manually. That's why the first steps should help you get your computer back into a working order, but the final steps require that someone knowledgeable help you at the end.I see chewy posted the link for the flash drive utility in your other thread.Zllio

I have this weird adware that appears on all of my YouTube videos. It displays an ad for certain products, right underneath the search bar. I have AdBlock, and it has done nothing to get rid of it. 
I also have F-Secure Internet Security and Malwarebytes on my computer. Both have done full-system scans and found nothing. I have also downloaded several free antivirus programs just to see if they could find a problem. Nothing.
I have also reviewed all of my Chrome extensions and plugins, and nothing looks out of place.
Does anybody have any idea how to remove this? I have posted a link to the screenshot.

Hi all,
askey127 recently helped me remove some malware from my computer (thanks again, it was a huge help). Everything's been fine since, until today. Now I have constant popups telling me that my popups are enabled, and I should call for support. Often if I try to follow a link, it will be hijacked to a fake support page, and I have ads by WorldWideWebCoupon on every page (including this one). Nothing's been installed since 2/10 other than a Java update. Can I please throw myself on the mercy of the forum and ask for help yet again?

Hello there, I am having an issue removing some adware off of my computer. I am not one to download free programs, and if so, I most certainly check for random downloads thrown in, so that is not the issue.

I have tried the following programs and processes to no avail:
CC Cleaner
Running Google Chrome without any extensions activated
Checking my Program Files to see if anything was randomly downloaded (and nothing was abnormal)
Reinstalling Steam

Please help me, I really do not want to continue seeing "FLV Player" pop up almost every single time I browse either on the internet or when I'm using Steam.

Thanks in advance,


A:Can't Remove Adware

Read other 8 answers

Recently I managed to somehow get myself a piece of adware/trojan which i really cannot remove now.

It seems to have created to main files in my system32 folder which cannot be deleted, even in safe mode with command prompt. These are pmkhi.dll and qomnllk.dll

I tired using VundoFix to remove them and they seemed to be removed in HijackThis but when the computer is restarted they just come back.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Anytime in the past that I have ever had a computer of a friends or mine get adware I have always managed to get rid of it, but this I can't. No idea how I got this but anyway, It pops up both in firefox and IE, I have adaware to try and remove it, it detects things, removes them but its still there when I check even on reboot, I also have pc cillian installed on my system with latest updates, that also finds them when I scan and says it removes them but I still have the problems when I try to surf. I have even turned off system restore incase it is using that to reinstall itself.

I also get a Mircosoft Visual C+++ error that says buffer overun detected! etc. everytime I seem to open some webpages.

Any ideas on how I can get rid of these?

A:Can't remove spy/adware

You didn't say, but if malware shows up after Spybot or Adaware removes it, it is possible that the malware is installing a flag in System Restore and then reinstalls itself the next time you boot up. If this is what is happening to you, after Spybot etc removes it, try going to System Restore (before you reboot) and turning it off. This will delete the restore file. Then you can make a new restore file. Aurora must be hard to get rid of. I Googled it and there is a 20 buck program which purports to gets rid of it. SpyAnylists removal instructions for removing 80 or so threats, but not Aurora. Sorry about that.You really have to keep up with security for your computer. Speaking of which, it has been a couple of months since I have downloaded the latest Hosts file.Good luck with it.

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.

Before you give us a new log here, if we gave you instructions for a fix, please do the fixes first and then post the new log with this updated version.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

I recently have obtained Adware on my computer about 2 days ago upon seeing it on Chrome. I removed it from Chrome and IE successfully, but I have realized it also infected Steam. I've looked up numerous ways to remove it, but none have been successful. If someone could help me with this I would be very grateful.

A:How do I remove Adware from Steam?

A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.NOTE 1.

does anyone know how to remove the bi.exe adware virus?

A:how do i remove bi.exe adware virus?

Welcome to BC !
Best to use the programs below to find and remove the adware and malware. No one program will find all.
Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the
Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.
After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.
CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here
Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install the application (X's are the current version number).
Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.
Click the Settings tab at the top, and then in the left column, select Detections and Protections, and if not already checked place a checkmark in the selection box for Scan for rootkits.
Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, select Threat Scan and click the Scan Now button.
If you receive a message that updates are available, click the Update Now button (the update will be downloaded, installed, and the scan will start).
The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
If potential threats are detected, ensure that Quarantine is selected as the Action for all the listed items, and click the ... Read more

A:Can't remove adware from Chrome


They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll be working with you.

Before we start please read and note the following:

At the top of your post, please click on the "Watch thread" button and make sure to check Watch this thread...and receive email notifications. This will send an email to you as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing me to solve your problem faster.
Please do not install any new software during the cleaning process other than the tools I provide for you. This can hinder the cleaning process. Please do not perform System Restore or any other restore.
Instructions I give to you are very simple and made for complete beginner to follow. That's why you need to read through my instructions carefully and completely before executing them.
Please do not run any tools other than the ones I ask you to, when I ask you to. Some of these tools can be very dangerous if used improperly. Also, if you use a tool that I have not requested you use, it can cause false positives, thereby delaying the complete cleaning of your machine.

All tools we use here are completely clean and do not contain any malware. If your antivirus detects them as malicious, please disable your antivirus and then continue.
If during the process you run across anything that is not in my instructions, please stop and ask. If any tool is running too much time (few hours), please stop and inform me.
I visit forum several times at day, making sure to respond to everyon... Read more

Hello ,

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one being driven insane by this pop-up/download. Can you please assist me too?

The problem first came to my attention after playing World of Warcraft. Exiting the game I left my machine on for several hours before returning to it to find numerous Pop-Ups opened and shortcuts on my desktop. Needless to say I was surprised having experienced no problems that morning. From then on I have been bombarded with this incessant download request.

I have noticed that the request to download the file "Thnall1ac.htm" occurs sporadocally and on occassion it simply ignores the option of "Save", "Open", "Cancel" or "More Info" and goes straight to downloading!

I have Zonealarm as my firewall and have run Spybot, Adaware and AVG but none of them are stopping this problem.

Help me Firman-1-Kenobi. Your my only hope!

I've done as per your response and used Hijack This. My results are as follows:
