Ok, whats going on y'all... Yep, back again with another spyware/popup problem. This time I don't even know where to start, I just have popups popping up from nowhere!

I used Ad-Aware and Spybot - Search & Destroy, but that didn't change a thing. Ad-Aware didn't even find anything, Spybot found the same stuff (BlazeFind.SearchEnhancer.ISTbar, DSO Exploit). It also couses IE Application Errors too.

My question is: Do you guys have any other software or solution that you might recommand?


These popups are really driving me crazy...

You need to run your remover in "Safe Mode" then reboot to safe mode, and run it again... Then you should be fine. Also go to www.microsoft.com and you can download their new Beta SpyWare remover, it works quite well.

I acutally have Norton AntiVirus on my computer.
I also installed the new MS Beta Spyware thingy, and tried everything in safemode too.


In the end, just like I didn't do anything at all

Did it get rid of ISTBar? That is a toolbar.

For receiving and sending email, I never use M$ outlook express or outlook. I always use Netscape / Mozilla.

Everytime when I heard someone crying for infecting some warm or virus from email, I never pay any attention for that. Due to I am not using outlook

Emperor,

Yes, I installed it and gave it a run. Actually, I was impressed with it, and think it would go over great. But, I think MS should offer it for free, without subscription. There are too many really good Adware scanners on the market that are free, for the basic version, and charge for an updated one.

One note, none of the apps I use will remove everything, I use MS AntiSpyware Beta, SpySweeper 3.5, and XOft (I think XOft is perhaps the best), but it usually takes a combination of all 3 before I know that all spyware is gone.

I am good for I don't go telling all that I have for some hacker to configure a way into my system, some things you own shouldn't be told that they have this and that IMHO :)
