Allow the list to load.
Uninstall these items by selecting each one by clicking on them and pressing remove on the right.

J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 3
Viewpoint Media Player


Please submit a new Hijack This log.
But when notepad opens this time, open the Format menu and untick Word Wrap.

Solved Re: Spyware.ISpyNow removal help

Post by Belahzur on 29th November 2008, 10:30 pm

I notice that you have Spybot's TeaTimer running. While this is normally a wonderful tool to protect against hijackers, it can also interfere with HijackThis fixes. So please 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.

Please make sure Teatimer is disable before we do this, otherwise this fix will fail.



  • Open HijackThis
  • Choose "Do a system scan only"
  • Check the boxes in front of these lines:


    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [nah_Shell] C:\Documents and Settings\David.HOME\nah_ltua.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [HPseti] "C:\Documents and Settings\David.HOME\Application Data\Google\runhh6110411.exe"
    O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present


  • Press "Fix Checked"
  • Close Hijack This.


Delete these two files in bold:
C:\Documents and Settings\David.HOME\nah_ltua.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\David.HOME\Application Data\Google\runhh6110411.exe
====


  • Download combofix from here, use the top links - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe.
  • Follow the prompts. NOTE:
  • ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.
    ***It's strongly recommended to have the Recovery Console installed before doing any malware removal.***

    **Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will automatically proceed with its scan.


  • The Recovery Console provides a recovery/repair mode should a problem occur during a Combofix run.



  • Allow ComboFix to download the Recovery Console.
  • Accept the End-User License Agreement.
  • The Recovery Console will be installed.
  • You will this next prompt that asks if you want to continue the malware scan, select yes



  • Allow combofix to run
  • Post C:\combofix.txt back here.

    Note:
    Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.

If the log looks clean, than I think that does it. I've let the computer run with the browser for a few hours and no pop-up with ISpyNow. Thank you so much for all your help Smile

Everything looks great --- your HijackThis log appears to be clean. Smile
Below I have included a number of recommendations for how to protect your computer in order to prevent future malware infections. Please take these recommendations seriously; these few simple steps can stave off the vast majority of spyware problems. As happy as we are to help you, for your sake we would rather not have repeat customers. Goofy

1) Please navigate to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and download all the "critical updates" for Windows. This can patch many of the security holes through which attackers can gain access to your computer.

Please either enable Automatic Updates under Start -> Control Panel -> Automatic Updates , or get into the habit of checking for Windows updates regularly. I cannot stress enough how important this is.

2) In order to protect yourself against spyware, you should consider installing and running the following free programs:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
A tutorial on using SpywareGuard for realtime protection against spyware and hijackers may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Make sure to keep these programs up-to-date and to run them regularly, as this can prevent a great deal of spyware hassle.

3) Please consider using an alternate browser. Mozilla's Firefox browser is fantastic; it is much more secure than Internet Explorer, immune to almost all known browser hijackers, and also has the best built-in popup blocker (as an added benefit!) that I have ever seen. If you are interested, Firefox may be downloaded from here:

4) Also make sure to run your antivirus software regularly, and to keep it up-to-date.

5) Finally, consider maintaining a firewall. Some good free firewalls are [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], or
