Get rid of an advertisement Banner?????

By glamberton ·
Someone clicked on an ad and had a banner download to their computer. The banner is displaying "Optimized Your Internet Connection Now". It goes away when Windows Me finishes loading. How do I go about finding where this is loading?

Look in this location in the registry. It sounds like they have specified a logon wallpaper

Key: [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]
Value Name: Wallpaper
Data Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
Let me know how that works

I would check out the following registry keys

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Load

The offending app may be specified in one of the above.
