how to remove spyware or adware crap??

Not my puter Someone i know always has this problem.


Adware, spyware removers can never take it off. It will force a dkflee.dll/blank as a homepage. And it basically is a webpage with links to get you to go to these search engines.


Is there a way to manually find where this program is at? All the adware program did was delete the 4 trojans, infected cookies and couple bad spots in the registry.

I tried deleting the homepage in the regedit and that did no good. The homepage is saved every 5min i think. So it is running in the background without being online.

How good is it?

One time I used like 4 spy programs, and none of them could remove the reappearing problems.

I think its one of the best. But trendmicro has free adware/spyware remover on their site.

My company uses spy sweep by web root. Works pretty good.

Try Spybot R&D. It's freeware and very good.

You'll have to update the engine after the install.

I think it is good to use two programs. This way hopefully if one misses the ad, the other will get it. I use both spy sweeper, and ad-aware; both of these are free. Do a complete scan with these about once a month and they should clear all the Spyware off.

IMO freeware is a waste and usually gives you more adware/spyware

not always. spybot S&D and adaware work very well with no BS.



best method: reload the computer and re-evaluate what you are doing on the internet.

Alot of times if you run Ad-aware SE in safe mode, it'll find alot of junk that it wont find in regular windows mode. Also, download Ewido anti-virus (10 day auto-update, manual update after that, and also run that in safe mode. Hi-jack this will tell you all the processes and object load-ups that occur, and there's forums out there (castlecops.com) that will allow you to post hijack this logs, and professionals will review them, and tell you what to do. This is what I had to go thru to remove an about:blank homepage virus..

With all due repect, you don't know what you are talking about. Spybot R&D is considered one of the best anti-spybot applications around.

Hijack This is the best program for finding amd removing any and all unwanted apps [imho]. Do a Google search and download the latest version.

FYI: it's not a very user-friendly program, it tells you the path of the programs.. so you gotta know what is supposed to run and what isn't...; but it will list pretty much everything.

i had to format and reinstall last year. It's a pain in the ass doing it for other people.

His kids use the computer and theres no 100% guarantee that will hit "no" on a pop up window or download something.

I did the safemode thing and i still have the adware submitting it's homepage. Ran an antivirus and it didn't find anything.

Ive seen some of the best antivirus, suck on some peoples computers. They will still have viruses on their computer.


I will try the programs some of you suggested. It is easier to spend 10 min using a program then a 3 hour format and reinstall.

Sounds more like a browser hijacking than normal spyware. Get the HiJackThis program mentioned earlier. (http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/index.html) he also has some other handy little apps available as well.

After running the program, if you're not sure what you're looking at in the log, post your log in the HiJackThis forum at CastleCops (http://www.castlecops.com/forums.html), and someone there will look at the log for you and tell you what shouldn't be there.

My pRon machine here at work got a trojan, the only thing I found to work was a reload. Stupid Paris Hilton

Oh yeah, I'm computer dumb, so I paid some place in Shorewood $60 to do it. Had it back in three hours......

+1 on the ad-aware and spybot s&d - Those are some great programs! My computer was so messed up after one night my BF's best friend stayed at my house, and he was all drunk, and all he did was surf porn all night...It took forever to get my computer back to normal, and I finally ran those two programs and my problems were fixed....My computer also kept changing my homepage on me, and those 2 programs took care of the problem!

I think spybot RnD fixed it, or spysweeper. I have to see which one. One of them needed the internet to update the program, so that was the one i didn't use.

But it removed a lot of stuff from the registry.


Thanks for your help, and i'll buy you all one large order of fries at strats to share.

I run Spybot R&D once a week, and Microsoft Anti-Spyware beta all the time. I haven't had troubles with spyware in near 6 months because of it.

Your homepage changing is symptom of a "cool web search" variant.

Click this link, download the standalone version to your desktop and double click it to run. Its free and it works for this type of hijacker.

+100 coolwebsearch (all of the variants) have been a serious pain in the ass until relatively recently. Keg is correct about using the shredder tool.
