    Not sure if this is a spyware problem

    A friend of mine is having issues with his laptop. He gets this error:

    Error Loading: e6f1873b.dll & d0ce0c16b1.dll

    I googled and it looks like it could be a spyware problem, but I'm not sure. I told him to back everything up and we'll try using Hijackthis to get rid of it. Here is his hijackthis log:

    /*I was looking at all the O10's, but I was uncertain. He is running AVG and it has AVG in the name. I"m also running AVG and ran hijackthis and didn't have these on my list. Also there is a web offer wo.exe that looks fishy and there are some BHO's without names. */

    Its a good idea to not just depend on one AV to do everything for you. You could try using Spybot, Adware and Housecall to triple check you are clean.

    Spybot is one of the best tools out there for detecting and removing spyware as is the Lavasoft Adaware for removing Adware.

    Housecall will just do the same as your AV but you have the guarentee of knowing it is absolutly 100% uptodate.

    *AVG IMO, and I do mean IMO, is not the best AV around and that is just my opinion before the usual flaming/arguing starts!*

    I had him update both Spybot S&D and Adaware and then run them both in safemode before he uses Hijackthis.

    AVG has worked well for me. Their customer service is great, they get back to me extremely fast. It doesnt' have all the bell's and whistles the other AV software out there, but I'm fine with it. The main determing factor in using AV, it has been proven dependable and it is very inexpensive (I have the paid version).

    I've never used Housecall, but I will look into it. Thanks.

    eetu - eetu.exe - Process Information

    Process File: eetu.exe
    Process Name: PurityScan Adware

    Description: eetu.exe is an advertising program by PurityScan. This process monitors your browsing habits and distributes the data back to the author's servers for analysis. This also prompts advertising popups. This program is a registered security risk and should be removed immediately.
    Process Library

    This is what is causing your popups....

    Also I see you are running Norton and AVG together, I would recommend you disable one and leave the other as the one with realtime protection and use the other one for manual scans, whichever one you want is your decision.

    After that, I would go to Panda Online Scan

    And then Trend Micro's Housecall

    After you have done these, download Ewido 14 day trial don't worry about the 14 day trial bit, even after this expires the program will still update, you just lose some of the fancier options.

    Get Spybot S & D and
    Adaware SE before doing these scans (Ewido.and adware) in safe mode (Spybot will only work in normal mode), get Crap Cleaner go to your folder options and unhide files and folders also uncheck hidden system files, then run Crap Cleaner, clear out your temp files, then run Spybot S & D, once these have been done (online scans and Cleaner and Spybot) reboot into safe mode and run Ewido and Adaware SE, on completion, reboot into normal mode, get the latest definitions from Norton, AVG and Windows, then run a new Highjack this log, you should notice some differences, then post back here, or over at Aumha Forums .


    You have a lot of 04's (startups) to manage these better get Startup Control Panel

    Notice this in your starups....
