While browsing cracks.am, I accidentally clicked on a java applet, and the site then installed Lop.com automatically onto my computer! I instantly ran ad-aware, and removed the SPYWARE, and also noticed that it added a lot of weblinks to "My Favorites". Does anyone know if there are any other places this pathetic thing installs?

Dammed!

Now that darn Lop is back. I ran the unistall.exe and ad-aware, but suddenly lop showed up again???
Where does it come from? I haven't visited cracks.am at a very long time...

This may be the solution, it worked for me.

Lop.com has become one of the most infamous of all browser hijackers. All over the internet, from message boards to newsgroups to IRC chat rooms I've seen people begging for help in getting rid of this filthy little piece of scumware. Continued: http://www.spywareinfo.com/lop.html

For instructions on how to completely remove it from your system, try:
http://www.spywareinfo.com/lopgone.html

To prevent it from ever coming back I'm thinking I can create an empty dll file by the same names as their trojan uses THEN making it readonly so it can't be easily overwritten in the future. Here are the commands
to copy and paste into your Start/Run field: Just type "exit" or click the X to close the DOS window that is left open.

command /k rem > \windows\plg_ie0.dll
command /k attrib \windows\plg_ie0.dll +r
