    For a little bit now I've been getting unexpected ad's for a place called Zamingo.com . Does anyone know what this is?

    They have been appearing even on sites without ad's and even with MSN Toolbar enabled.

    this FIX is for zamingo.com & 680180.net


    For the victims of the 680180.net <A TITLE="Click for more information about <A TITLE="Click for more information about adware" STYLE="text-decoration: none; border-bottom: medium solid green;" HREF="http://messagebroadcaster.net/bannerfarm/link/sw/sw.htm">adware</A>" STYLE="text-decoration: none; border-bottom: medium solid green;" HREF="http://messagebroadcaster.net/bannerfarm/link/sw/sw.htm">adware</A>, there is information on what system changes were made in the setupapi.log in the Windows directory. Here are some of the files that need to be deleted to resolve the popup issues:

    Click START & go to MY COMPUTER, right-click then click EXPLORE & click the WINDOWS folder then click SYSTEM 32 folder then find the following below & delete it. Just delete ADStartUP.exe, all the files names listed below(delete AdUpdater.exe, adupmanager.xml, data.xml, IEEnhancer.dll) & not the full links here. Also u might not be able to delete ADStartUP.exe right away but follow the instructions here below on the registry edit & u can go back & delete the ADStartUP.exe & the rest... it works for zamingo.com & 680180.net pop-ups disappeared.

    %Windir%\System32\ADStartUP.exe
    %Windir%\System32\AdUpdater.exe
    %Windir%\System32\adupdmanager.xml
    %Windir%\System32\data.xml
    %Windir%\System32\IEEnhancer.dll

    After deleting these files from your system you will need to delete a registry entry:


    Click the "Start" button on the taskbar

    Click "Run..."

    Type "regedit" and click the "OK" button

    Click the "Start" button on the taskbar

    Open the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" registry key

    Right-click "Adstartup" and click "Delete"
