    I need computer help..PLEASE!!

    Discussion started by Zack Morris - May 23, 2002

    ok a piece I guess it would fall under spyware has implanted its self nto my cmputer. I have tried to use adaware to removeit with no avail. Its a small program for a site called lop.com Its like a desktop searchengine type thing and it is causeing problems with explorer and using a nice chunk of my cpu. I have a theory that it has implanted itself into explorer (not internet explorer) due to the fact that when i view my processes and this program restards itself after I close its window My computer is finding activity with explorer and no other executable file. If someone can help please help me because this program is giving me a headache and a half.

    Hhhhm, i dont really understand most of the text, but the standard tactic goes like this...
    1. Search the and find the directory where the program is, try uninstalling it...if there's no such option..try the control panel uninstall.

    2. Then remove manually all the files that uninstall didnt touch (there are always some).

    3. MOST IMPORTANT...check the startup menu on the the start button...if the program appears in there, it means that it automaticly loads with startup...Remove it and restart.

    4. You can detect some stuff by pressing ALT+CONTROL+DEL and read the list of programs running...

    5. another think could be fucking with the program preferences. Most of the times software like that come inside another program

    I hope something helps although i think you've already tried those...anyway, lucks!

    thats all been..the program has done a GREAT job of hiding itself.

    I got it from downloading a crack for a program. I guess thats what I get for not wanting to pay for software.

    I second that.

    I don't think Adobe is going to lose any money off us scavengers.

    goto your control panel and goto add/remove programs..find it there..no program can hide itself.

    unless its a polymorphic virus, if so then your basically fucked, they disguise themselves as files that you wouldnt normally look for, as well as files anti-virus software looks for, so well i guess technically it cant hide its self, but it can make it look like something else...

    ...

    maybe this will work
    right click on the dektop icon/properties/target. delete 'target' and all other associated folders.

    I had some shit like that a few weeks ago and I couldn't find the source of the program untill I did that.

    Also, adaware only removes programs it knows to be spyware, what you have isnt spyware, thats why that didnt work.

    Let me know if that helped.
