Preferred Solution: NO PUEDO ELIMINAR EL WINUPDATES CON AD AWARE

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, First of all, delete next folder:C:\Program Files\winupdatesI also suggest you uninstall next programs:Viewpoint (viewpoint managerLimeWireLimeWare is known as infected with spyware. There are a lot safer and better alternatives though. Also read here:http://www.spywareinfo.com/articles/p2p/When done, REBOOT.Download L2mfix from one of these two locations:http://www.atribune.org/downloads/l2mfix.exehttp://www.downloads.subratam.org/l2mfix.exeSave the file to your desktop and double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts, then open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop. Double click l2mfix.bat and select option #1 for Run Find Log by typing 1 and then pressing enter. This will scan your computer and it may appear nothing is happening, then, after a minute or 2, notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it into this thread.IMPORTANT: Do NOT run option #2 OR any other files in the l2mfix folder until you are asked to do so!Also, it is really important you tell me if you get any errors while running option #1

JUst saw where lovely Win10 updates once again installs known bad Conexant drivers.
its an aside, but the rules on WHQL must have been relaxed to the point of a auto-rubberstamp.... anything goes!

does ANYONE know a registry hack or something that can stop this insanity? the Hide/Unhide tool is a placebo.... device drivers do not appear in the Programs & Features inventory [tool renders "no hidden updates found"] . the Hardware Advanced Properties "do not install" button is a placebo. no effect whatsoever.
about a million threads on this subject and STILL no resolve??

Hello everyone,
I have had recent problems on this computer which seem to be resulting from a series of spyware, adware, and trojans. I'm thinking i have the possibility of being infected with the trojan downloader "peper" which shows up in spysweeper as "2LRX2W83X2T3MQ"(but not too sure..?) as well as a bundle that seems impossible to get rid of consisting of "Webrebates," "Winupdates," and "SysProtect Free" which are quite possibly the most annoying adware and spyware in the world today! Adware called NewdotNet was on my computer but i read somewhere that they are a actual company and that i should go to their website and use their uninstaller on removal option #4. I still get the error for NewdotNet at the startup and it keeps adding itself to the "HKEY/.../Run" directories all over again, maybe it's just the remnants of NewdotNet.
Anyways, all these problems keep adding themselves to the Msconfig startup and Spysweeper startup without my permission. Any help to rid these problems would be greatly appreciated. Oh, and i have read in some places that it is possible to remove "NewdotNet," "Webrebates" and possibly "Winupdates" from the control panel's add/remove option, yet none of this adware shows up anywhere in the add/remove programs entire list. Thanks in advance.

I restarted to complete Windows Updates but my PC will only load the first Win8 start screen (the one showing mountains and the tower). I cannot get to any login screen. I do not have a touch screen but used Start8 software to enable Win7 type interface. Previously I got the same start screen but just pressed 'escape' and it took me to my Win7 login screen so I would input my password. Now I cannot get past the first screen. Help please.

I am sorry if this question has been asked but I am unable to find an answer so far. So what I am very curious about is what exactly is the difference between Ad-Aware SE Personal and Ad-Aware 2007 Free? And why does bleepingcomputer.com link you to the Ad-Aware SE Personal while going directly to Lavasoft you are directed to download Ad-Aware 2007 Free and can't even download the SE Personal version unless it is Enterprise. But then the link from bleepingcomputer does take you to a place ON the Lavasoft website that does offer the SE Personal version. Very confusing! Any answers or links to a previously answered thread would be most helpful and much appreciated!

I'm reposting this here, even though it really isn't the right place for it. One of the mods over in the security section thought this belongs here. I don't think it does, but I'm going to do it to shut him up...


Okay, somehow my Ad-Aware failed me miserably and I don't know how it happened.

Today, when I pulled up the Task Manager (which I almost always leave running in case something goes wrong and I need to terminate something quickly) I noticed one of those executables with the random filenames. It was only on my list of running processes for a split second before it closed and/or hid itself. This set off a LARGE red and flashing light in my head and I immediately went to the System Configuration Utility to see if I could spot something amiss. Spot something I did and entered what I found into Google.

As it turns out, a Koobface worm somehow managed to find it's way onto the system, so I ran Ad-Aware and it said there was NOTHING there. I found that strange, so I downloaded and ran Avenger, which claimed to have successfully removed it (though this later proved to be only PARTLY true). I'm not a stupid person by any means, and immediately tracked down a copy of MBAM. It took five hours and reported over twenty problems. Here's the log:

I've been having so many problems with spyware/adware over the past few months, I really can't explain it but it's p*ssing me right off!!

I search with Ad-Aware and Spybot, Ad-Aware generally finds more than Spybto, and always finds loads of VX2 things, I select them all - delete them... Problem solved.. right? Wrong. After about half an hour, I go back to search again and everything is still there!

I've also got the VX2 plugin for Ad-Aware and when I run this it tells me my system is clean? If it's so clean why does it find all the stuff titled VX2 on a normal search?

Also I don't know if this is linked to VX2 but when I'm browsing and open a new window, generally I'll see another window open in the taskbar, then close - and then a website to do with MX-targeting has been put into my clipboard when I paste it.

Can anyone help?! Would a Hijack this log be any use? Thx in advance.

at present it's not internet ready. i have dsl and the pc doesnt appear to have a jack fer dsl. so i cant use my IP. in System Config>star up i found teekids, ati2vid, msblast, mslaugh, enbiei, istsvc, sais, i could go on.

i figured i'd use my good pc to dl Ad-Aware, Spybot SD, ms antispy, and HJT. just to do some basic cleaning before bothering you all.

i dl'd Ad-Aware SE from maj geeks. i also found the defs. ref dl.

my problem is that after installing Ad-Aware SE i cant get the defs to dl to Ad-Aware SE.

i dl'd all to cd using my good pc (XP Home & dsl), and then put cd into infected pc to install. all is done accept Ad-Aware SE defs.

the defs for spybot loaded themselves to the correct location. but when i click on the defs for Ad-Awares SE, windows sez it cant open the file. it gives me two options; either use the web to find an aplicable program (which i cant do) or choose the program from a list.

what i ended up doing is drop and drag defs from cd to desktop, then i extracted files. it asked me where i wanted them to go and i put them in C:/documents and settings/all users/start menu/programs/Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE Personal. when starting the program it still screams that my defs are 170 days old.

please advise, ty muchly

A:Ad-aware Se

Hi igo,i put them in C:/documents and settings/all users/start menu/programs/Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE Personal.That's the start menu location for AdAwareSE not the program location.If you have a new defs.ref file I'd suggest you use Windows Explorer to open 'C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal' where you should see the existing defs.ref file. Rename that to defs.old or something similar. Then you can drag'n'drop the new defs.ref file in there without any queries.Job done.

A:ad-aware

I run SpyBlocker along with AdAware. SpyBlocker runs real time and blocks spyware before it gets on your computer. The shareware version of AdAware does as well but the freeware version of SpyBlocker works real time.

In the past three months with SpyBlocker on my computer AdAware hasnt found a single spyware other than a false positive in Cleansweep with one of the reflists. AdAware regularly found stuff before installing SpyBlocker. The two seem to play nice together.

It is twice as much to keep up to date and people dont tend to announce new reflists on the board for SpyBlocker the way they do for AdAware. It is probably better to keep the stuff out in the first place though.

AVG anti spyware
Spyware blaster
Spyware guard

I run these programs every couple of days, is there any particular order that they should be run. Should they be run in safe made??

Ever since my security problems started, I cant help feeling that my personal info is being monitored so I no longer do my personal banking on line anymore, and I really miss this. My computer is about a year and a half old, and I dont have a CD, is this needed to reformat my computer?? or can I use the PC doctor software that came installed on my computer??? and if so, will this completely erase everything on my pc and allow me to start from fresh???
