Windows 7: New Member, Hidden Taimed Adware. Win.7 64

New Member, Hidden Taimed Adware. Win.7 64

Hello forum, new member here and I can only hope this thread is OK on this forum and in the right place.

Short story even shorter, I am led to believe I have the Adware called "Taimed, LLC". Simple enough, I'll delete the program from "Programs and features".....but it's not there. Free edition of Malwarebytes and Spybot S&D did not pick anything up. (Around 2AM).

I found a cleaner program, fixed it up. Yesterday, around 1AM it somehow came back. Downloaded "Junk Removal Tool" and it removed it. Low and behold tonight it came back YET AGAIN!

I have dealt with viruses in the past, and have simply removed the file and their gone. This is beyond me, and I really need some help.

Thank you!

EDIT: "Show Hiden files" button is checked, and am currently using AdBlock to get Chrome working. This is also happening on Mozilla, so it's not a browser extension. Also tonight when it came back, it happened after I restarted my computer.

Downloaded "Reimage" after reading a good review. Tried to run it and said that it wouldn't run because Spybot Tea Timer was running in the background. Uninstalled Spybot and it still says that it's running.

EDIT: Scanned tonight with JRT again. Hopped on chrome and it couldn't connect to the Proxy Server. Rebooted, and the Adware is back. HELP!

Disable TeaTimer by doing the following:

1) Run Spybot-S&D
2) Go to the Mode menu, and make sure "Advanced Mode" is selected
3) On the left hand side, choose Tools -> Resident
4) Uncheck "Resident TeaTimer" and OK any prompts
You can reenable TeaTimer once your system is clean

I removed TeaTimer in the registry. Preformed the scan and guess what, the time to tell me you have to pay for it is AFTER the scan.

However, even though I didn't pay for it it told me what files it found. One of the was Adware, so I went in and manually removed it.

Downloaded two Rootkit cleaners, solved the problem for now. Lets see if it comes back tonight.

Thank you No programs installed under those names, thankfully. Especially that one towards the end....

rKill, KVRT, and some other scans. Nothing....

It's really hiding if it's still there.

I feel really bad to keep posting in this thread, but it's back again after a two day hiatus. Can anybody help?

Have you tried Adwarecleaner by chance. It's a nice tool that might be able to weed out some hard to find files.

Also, do you have a back up available to revert to?

Yes, I created a registry backup. A few cleaner programs I downloaded (Trusted ones) created two others aswell. If not, dad has a Windows XP disk....in the worst case scenario.

Junkware Removal Tool removed some suspiciously named registry entries I didn't catch, and I'm fairly sure it fixed the issue. If it comes back I will try that cleaner. Thank you

It came back....
ADW Cleaner deleted a lot of things other cleaners didn't catch.

Is it common to have Adware, Malware, or other viruses that come back after being *deleted*?
