Pop-ups/wintask.exe errors

Unread postby MDB » June 23rd, 2005, 11:44 am

I've got some major bugs that have infected my computer. I'm getting tons of pop-ups and wintask.exe errors. I've ran Ad-Aware and SpyBot S&D and they cannot remove all the spyware? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello MDB, and welcome to the forums. :)

That's quite an assortment of malware you have there, so it will take multiple steps to remove it.
  • Open Add/Remove programs from your computer's Control Panel and uninstall any of the following programs if they are found...
    • WeirdOnTheWeb
    • Media Access
    • 180Solutions
    • SurfSideKick
    • VirtualBouncer

    Reboot when finished.
  • Download L2mfix from one of these links:


    Save the file to your desktop. Double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts. Open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop. Double click l2mfix.bat and select option #1 for Run Find Log by typing 1 and then pressing enter.

    This will scan your computer and it may appear nothing is happening, then, after a minute or two, notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it into your next reply here.
  • IMPORTANT: Do NOT run option #2 OR any other files in the l2mfix folder until you are asked to do so!

Post the log l2mfix log into this same thread along with a fresh HijackThis log as there will be much more to do.
