    Popups Won't Go Away!

    I've used AdWare/Spybot, turned off Windows Messenger and deleted all of the registry keys which seemed suspicious to me. I also used CW Shredder and I'm still getting popups offline. Here's a HijackThis log which i ran a few minutes before posting, which I hope will help.

    I thought that this was a little strange " blengine.exe ".

    Adware.Buddylinks

    Read the above link and I hope that helps you solve your problems.

    I checked and I did find one of the buddylinks folders, but not the main folder or the registry key. But i did find another potential suspect, unless it's some codenamed windows thing
    Suspect: BCMSMMSG.exe

    I noticed in the log that hijackthis.exe is residing in your temp internet files...clean'em up and do a cookie dump, then go to www.mozilla.org and get a browser that isn't so damned vulnerable to bullsh*t like this.

    Thanks everyone, I think i may have fixed it. But here's another question. What's WildTangent and how do i get rid of it. I've used Adware and Spybot multiple times, but it keeps reinstalling itself somehow. *Sigh* Adware/Spyware is so annoying...

    it's funny (wierd funny) as I think wildtangent should show up in your hijackthis log and I see no reference to it.. after you've fixed what others have suggested, rerun hijackthis and post a new log.. or go over to spywareinfo's forum and post a log there as they are a bit better at deciphering what should be deleted..

    good luck..


    edit: AFAIK, wildtangent will make it's own directory on your hard drive. do a search of the drive and a search of the registry

    Some Winamp plugins are made by WildTangent... If I recall correctly, it even installs an icon to your Control Panel and tries to contact the internet every once in a while. I recommend you to install a firewall so that you can detect those "internal extrusions" as well as external intrusions.
