Annoying adware, redirect and popus

April 10, 2011 at 21:14:15
Specs: Windows XP
I got some pretty heavy spyware at random a few days ago, managed to get rid of most of it running spybot and superantispyware, but there seems to be some residual adware that is redirecting me when I click on google searches and giving me popups in iexpolrer even though I'm using firefox. So it's opening IE too. When I run a registry check in ccleaner I'm getting an issue with my HKCR which it can't get rid of. Anyway I ran HiJack This so here is the log. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks!

Thanks, after stopping a popup I noticed "yeildmanager" and did a search. I believe it's this that I have. I tried a few things that didn't work, is there anything you can recommend?

yeildmanager, I think you mean't yieldmanager, which is just a tracking cookie.

Try this:

Then do a virus scan and remove what is on your computer to cause the redirects and pop ups. I hope it works for you.

Ss Startup Manager is helpful for both system administrator and home user. Ss Startup Manager supports all startup sections and is recommended for Windows 98/Me/2000/XP. Easily get rid of annoying adware, spyware and extraneous programs that do nothing but slow down your startup time. Also, use Adware Spyware Removal.

Thanks for the help guys. I ran TDSSKiller and that seemed to do the trick. No more redirections so far anyway.
