Yeah, there seem to be a lot of toolbars - usually packed with an installer of other pgms. This is a fairly common "problem", but not necessarily harmful.

The only one you might want to keep is Winamp - but a toolbar can always be replaced, so I suggest letting AdwCleaner clean up everything in the next step (clean)

AdwCleaner is a two step process. Scan then Clean

AdwCleaner Step 2: Scan and Clean
  • Right-click AdwCleaner.exe on your Desktop and select Run As Administrator.

  • Click on the Scan button.
    >> AdwCleaner begins scanning your system. It might take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished... click on the Clean button.
    • Answer OK to the "close all programs" prompt, then follow the onscreen prompts.
    • Answer OK to the "restart the computer" prompt to complete the removal process.
      >> The AdwCleaner[S#].txt log is opened in your default Text editor when the machine has restarted.
      [R#] gets incremented every time you run AdwCleaner - the highest number is the most recent.
  • Paste the entire AdwCleaner log in your next post.
    AdwCleaner logs are located in the C:\AdwCleaner folder if you need to reference them again.

Thanks Slartybart

This is the log which emerged from doing the Clean in AdwCleaner.

I recognise some entries - in the few minutes since the Clean run I only notice FireFox may have been set back to an earlier state - no big deal.

You mentioned WinAmp - I noted that after the Scan run and did a Control Panel Uninstall on it as I have never used it sufficiently to keep it.

ok thanks,

These were not cleaned for some reason:
[x] Not Deleted : C:\Program Files (x86)\jZip
[x] Not Deleted : C:\Users\pfo\AppData\Local\jZip

Please restart you machine and then follow this guide fro jZip virus removal:
Remove Search.Jzip.com (Virus Removal Guide)

Run the scans in the order specified and paste all logs here for review. You can run all of the scans and then post all of the logs on one post.

There will be more scanners to run until your machine is clean. I'll look at the logs when they are posted.

Thanks,

Bill

Ok, good. it will take me a while to read through the logs.

There were other malware threats that I saw before this run of scanners, but I think the scans you ran should have addressed some of them. There might be one or two still hanging on, so I'll post what I see and suggest teh next course of action.

JRT cleaned up a bunch of 'stuff' interestingly there were a lot of WLM empty folders (a bug fixed in WEM 2012). I wonder if they got in the way of the original issue posted.

Since WLM did not do proper garbage collection, I want you to run Old Timer- Temp File Cleaner

Restart your machine in case there are any system operations pending

Click here to download Old Timer-TFC.
>> save the application to your Desktop.
Old Timer-TFC is a standalone application, there is no install.

Save your work and close all open windows.
TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!

Right click, run as administratorTFC

Click the Start button to begin cleaning up temporary files and folders.

Do not work on other things while TFC is running - most applications use some sort of temporary files. Just let TFC run by itself on the machine until it completes.

If TFC prompts you to reboot, do so immediately.
If TFC does NOT prompt you, then reboot your machine immediately after TFC has completed.

After restarting the machine - yet another set of scans (you don't have to download the same scanners again)

Mobogenie is classified as a Potential Unwanted Program (PUP).
See: Remove Mobogenie virus (Removal Guide) - it's pretty much the same set of scans, but you uninstall Mobogenie 1st, then let the scanners clean up.

When that's all done, there's one more I'd like to use, just to cover the bases.

You're doing great, soon you can try to install WLM again!... but not yet

Thanks Slartybart - unfortunately the TFC scan has been running over 12 hours. If it is still working that's fine. There is no indication of anything happening. There seems no hint of any log file when looking in from the other laptop.

The first two 'user' temp folders flew in as there were no files requiring deletion. My user account has been worked on for over 12 hours. Last time TFC was run it was all done in, I believe, less than 3 hours.

I will run it again just now to see what happens, but will stop it after a few hours done or not.

And. to answer my own question: shut down, boot Safe Mode, shut down, boot normal, run TFC. All as expected.

I like it when members answer their own questions

I guess what ever is on your system was fighting OTL. There really wasn't much (3.5MB GB) cleaned up once you got into safe mode.

I would run the machine in safe mode until things improve. No sense having malware retrench your system.

Ok, I have to backtrack a bit. I've been working on some other threads and I need to figure out what you need to do next so I don't suggest something you've already done (unless it needs to be repeated)

Give me a bit of time to regroup.

thanks

Bill
