Sorry about this but I'm a little stuck.

I'm helping clean up a thoroughly adware/spyware infested PC. A quick Google search turned up a tech forum dedicated to un-infesting hijacked PC's. As of TODAY that forum is closing up shop and I just posted my questions / HiJack This log file.

1. Do you know of another good forum for getting answers on hijacked PC's?
2. Do you know where I can find out how to read a HiJack This log file?
3. Do you know how to read a HiJack This log file and tell me whats fine and what should be deleted?

Help!
Dr.(stymied)F.

P.S. I'm posting my original tech post below.

Hijack This Log (used Ad-aware)

I started with a laptop running WinXP Home. Symptoms were the "Error Loading C:\WINDOWS\System32\bridge.dll" pop-up and an overall system slowdown. Updated Norton AV and ran that. Tried to update Windows and could only install about 3 critical updates. Uninstalled only those programs in "Add/Remove" that were obviously adware/spyware/etc.

So, I then followed the instructions on <http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=15913>. Ran Adaware with the most recent update. Ran Hijack This and got the following log file. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tim

There are a few good programs that have used to remove these.

Spy Sweeper - http://www.spysweeper.com/download.html
CWShredder - http://www.softpedia.com/public/scripts/downloadhero/10-17-150/

Thanks!

Which one did you use?

My PC recently was hijacked, and this site helped:
http://www.cybertechhelp.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=25

Basically, they will ask you to post your HiJack This log file, and tell you what to delete (and how). It's usually files you don't recognize, but if you're clueless (like me), they should be able to walk you through it.
I tried WilderSecurity forums, and as I said they just closed that forum off :confused: . Re: clueless - SOME of the files I recognize, but not all of them by far!

Gracias,
Dr.F.

You can also try installing and running 'Spybot Search and Destroy'. I run that and Adaware once to twice a month. Keeps me out of trouble pretty good.
You can find it through download dot com

Google "cwshredder" and download it. Restart your computer in safe mode and run it.

Adaware 6. Load most recent downloads.
Use custom scanning options-
General- Everything checked except "run at windows startup"
Scanning- top box-scan with archives checked
- lower box- all checked
Tweak- Cleaning engine- check "let windows remove files..."

There are a few more options. I suggest freedomlist.com

I had horrible trojans, and after using Adaware with the newest downloads, I finally came clean.

Goodl luck, and stay away from crappy websites. Use Firefox as a browser. Set up the security settings. It's a study to get it right.

1. Do you know of another good forum for getting answers on hijacked PC's?
2. Do you know where I can find out how to read a HiJack This log file?
3. Do you know how to read a HiJack This log file and tell me whats fine and what should be deleted?

Help!
