Removing Spyware-Exploit

By mztilbel ·
Is there any way to permanently remove the Spyware 'Exploit' from my computer? I have Ad-Aware and Spyware Nuker installed, and each time I run them, Exploit shows up again.
Thanks

i do not know that specific malware. but if me i would look at www.pestpatrol.com for more info on that one. meanwhile, run Stinger from www.mcafee.com and run Ad-Aware in EACH profile, see if that helps. also try turning off system restore first (iff applic - you don't mention your os)

Adaware 6.181 will sometimes ask you if you want to try to remove the offending files, usually .dll's at the next boot. If this still hasn't worked, boot to safe mode before Windows loads. Navigate to the file or files and delete them. ( I believe I once had to boot safe, AND open a dos prompt in order to delete )

Turn off system restore if it is used in your os.

Download, update, and run the following.

Your Antivirus Software

Spybot:
http://tinyurl.com/ziar

Ad-Aware:
http://tinyurl.com/tek5

Stinger
http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/
This item will not update through the program. You have to download the new version.

CWshredder:
http://tinyurl.com/2bzef
Or
http://tinyurl.com/2k642
Look for the file in English CWShredder.exe

StartUpList:
http://www.mac-net.com/576482.page

StartUpList is information only. Startup, Registery, and others. You can?t fix anything from within the program.

Hijack This:
http://mjc1.com/mirror/hjt/

Hijack This is useful in that it shows what is currently loading on startup. You must know what is good and what is bad. Once you check it and fix it is gone. So be sure. Items you are not sure of do a Google search for them.

Run Your Antivirus again

I have had to boot into safe mode and run these.

Good Luck Lee

If its the DSO Exploit that I have seen repeatedly, use the spyware scanner, Bazooka, from http://www.kephyr.com/spywarescanner/supportus.phtml. It will detect and give you an online step by step on manually getting rid of it. In the cases that I have seen it reqd a manual regedit in several keys.
