What's the best one for getting rid of undesirable sites from you favourites?

If it is the same one my Brother had then it is a pain to get rid of but it is possible. I managed to finally get it of his system by Googling for info and finding this:

I simply followed the instructions in the first post here. If this isn't the same dialler perhaps it might be worth doing a Google search to see what you can find.

I've got some spyware for the first time since... well, almost ever. The only thing I know I did right before I had it was install Ultramon, but I wasn't aware of that coming with any spyware.

Spybot, Ad-Aware and HijackThis! don't seem to have helped much, as it keeps coming back. I've deleted files such as "Love Build.dll", but I can't find any info referring to that online. I've just looked in Program Files and there's about 30 directories such as "cash", "cash spam", "cashcashspam setup" all with a file called "Idle Else.bin" inside.

The spyware itself has made Internet Explorer really slow, and creates a big search bar alongside the bottom half of the screen. Anyone got any ideas?

I've run Spybot for around a fortnight - however in the past few days it freezes after I click 'Fix selected problems'. When I bring up task manager it says the program is not responding. Needless to say everything it has detected in 'search and destroy' remains 'unfixed'.

Any ideas?

BTW I have updated to the latest version.

I didn't up until I posted this message - but I decided to. Both programs now seem to be working ok - were u going to suggest I should try adaware or that it was causing the problem?

Hello

I wonder if anyone can help. I can't download any of the tools on the front page. Every time I try I am redirected to a search page. This redirection now happens every time I try to go to a popular website, e.g. hotmail or amazon (not the dvd forums thank goodness) either through Favourites or typing into the address bar.

All virus scans come up with nothing.

Help!

Sounds to me like some Spyware has changed your hosts file to redirect a load of sites to this search engine. http://www.thedvdforums.co.uk/forums...75997#problems (2nd post down) is the best explanation I have seen for how to clear out your hosts file

Also, I noticed someone mention that Bazooka found some problems Ad-Aware and Spybot missed. COuld be worth adding to the list.

I have been using a programme called Aluria (try a Google search) to get rid of Spyware. You can download a free scanner, which basically scans your PC and tells you what spyware is present and it's location, but to delete it you need to pay for the full programme.

Last week I ran both Spybot and Adaware and they removed a few bits, the first run of Aluria found 166 items missed by the other programmes!

Having a lot of trouble at the moment on my flatmates pc, computer keeps automatically changing to a website address called adultbouncer with all sorts of prgoram names attached. Run adaware 6 all it seems to do is get rid of loads of dataminers and not the program thats causing them, ie go back in a weeks time and they'd be aload more generated.

Recommendations on what programs to try?

Tried it and the only thing it picked up extra to spybot was an atl.dll and classed it as brilliant digital - its not, its a clean library - so be careful.
