    Hi Nyeff,

    Firstly you nead to move Hijack This to a permenant directory. Then Make sure Adaware is updated with the latest definitions.

    Then reboot into safe mode and run Adaware again.

    Then re-scan with Hijack This and post the results again

    see the temporary internet files folder?its not a permanent directory...make a new folder on C: rename it Hijackthis or porn or anything you want and paste the Hijackthis files there

    well,its a manual uninstall so I'm guessing it'll work irrespective of your AV..all you have to do is delete the right registry keys...either from the registry or use HT to do it for you and the relevant files

    This threat can be detected only by Symantec products that support expanded threats. For more information on expanded threats, please go here.




    Behavior
    Adware.ZestyFind monitors visited web sites, uploads the information to a server, and then displays pop-up advertisements.

    C:\WINNT\msg117.dll is inaccessible.

    Transmission
    This adware component can be manually installed or installed as a component of another program.



    File names:
    msg117.dll

    When the Adware.ZestyFind is executed, it performs the following actions:


    Drops a file, %System%\msg117.dll.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Note: %System% is a variable. The adware locates the System folder and copies itself to that location. By default, this is C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me), C:\Winnt\System32 (Windows NT/2000), or C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP).
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Creates the following registry keys:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\Guardian
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Approved\{DDFFA75A-E81D-4454-89FC-B9FD0631E726}
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{DDFFA75A-E81D-4454-89FC-B9FD0631E726}
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{DDFFA75A-E81D-4454-89FC-B9FD0631E726}


    URLs visited are logged, uploaded to www.look2me.com, and then pop-up advertisements are shown.


    Replaces any of its registry keys, if they are deleted.


    Causes errors when users or antivirus scanners attempt to access it. For example Norton AntiVirus will show the following error message:

    Unable to open the file C:\WINNT\System32\msg117.dll. The file is in use by another application or you don't have permission to open the file


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Note: Reports indicate this adware can cause severe system instability on Windows 95/98/Me. It may also cause instability on other operating systems.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------





    The following instructions pertain to all current and recent Symantec antivirus products, including the Symantec AntiVirus and Norton AntiVirus product lines.


    Rename msg117.dll.
    Disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP).
    Update the virus definitions.
    Delete the subkeys from the registry.
    Run a full system scan and delete all the files detected as Adware.ZestyFind.

    For specific details on each of these steps, read the following instructions.


    1. Rename msg117.dll.

    Shut down the computer and turn off the power. Wait for at least 30 seconds, and then restart the computer.

    Press the F8 key while rebooting, then select "Safe mode command prompt only" in Windows 95/98/Me or "Safe Mode with Command Prompt" in Windows NT/2000/XP.

    At the command prompt, type:

    ren %system%\msg117.dll zesty.nav


    Shut down the computer and turn off the power. Wait for at least 30 seconds, and then restart the computer.


    By the way you are still running Hijack this from a temp file. You need to run it from the directory you copied it to .
