Everytime I launch IE, these two search bars pop-up. I don't use IE but my parents do sometimes. I did a Spybot - Search and Destroy.. found like 5 problems and I fixed them. But still, they pop-up. Any ideas?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Fix these:

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://www.cfmccjjbwrvbiyxssc.us/Ap...vVbREom5zD0.php
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {88B28A89-B431-C8D9-1B65-CCEA5851D23F} - C:\PROGRA~1\INTER4~1\CLOCK RULE.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Name Creative] C:\PROGRA~1\chicidledeaf\extragluecdrom.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Rule up great owns] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\comp 32 rule up\comp1.exe

Also, run this uninstaller, http://lop.com/new_uninstall.exe MessengerPlus installs lop.com crap if you allow it to, one reason I definitely recommend against it.

Reboot into safemode, and delete:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\comp 32 rule up\ <--folder
C:\Program Files\chicidledeaf\ <--folder
C:\Program Files\INTER4~1\ <--folder that begins with inter4

Reboot normally and post a new log. All of this spyware was installed via MessengerPlus.

Those bars are now removed. Here's the new log. Everything seems fine to me.

Oh and I don't know why but when I did that uninstaller thing, all my bookmarks were gone from Firefox.


Is it possible to recover them?

Yeah, the bookmarks are back.

I don't know why it happened. It gave me a warning when I used it to close all your internet browsers, maybe something happened in between.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
