Welcome to MalWare Removal. :)

Good morning.

Smart Shopper is is considered to be a "Potentially Unwanted Program". Click here to see what McAfee say about it. I would suggest that you uninstall it, but please note what McAfee says about contractual obligations. If you decide to uninstall it, click on Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and remove SmartShopper. Please let me know what you decide to do.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I see that Viewpoint is installed. Viewpoint, Viewpoint Manager, Viewpoint Media Player are Viewpoint components which are installed as a side effect of installing other software, most notably AOL and AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). Viewpoint Manager is responsible for managing and updating Viewpoint Media Player’s components. You can disable this using the Viewpoint Manager Control Panel found in the Windows Control Panel menu. By selecting Disable auto-updating for the Viewpoint Manager -- the player will no longer attempt to check for updates. Anything that is installed without your consent is suspect. Read what Viewpoint says and make your own decision.
To provide a satisfying consumer experience and to operate effectively, the Viewpoint Media Player periodically sends information to servers at Viewpoint. Each installation of the Viewpoint Media Player is identifiable to Viewpoint via a Customer Unique Identifier (CUID), an alphanumeric identifier embedded in the Viewpoint Media Player. The Viewpoint Media Player randomly generates the CUID during installation and uses it to indicate a unique installation of the product. A CUID is never connected to a user's name, email address, or other personal contact information. CUIDs are used for the sole purpose of filtering redundant information. Each of these information exchanges occurs anonymously.

I recommend that you remove the Viewpoint products; however, decide for yourself. Uninstall the the Viewpoint components (Viewpoint, Viewpoint Manager, Viewpoint Media Player) using Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs as above. Again, please let me know what you decide.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Run HijackThis and click Scan and then check (tick) the following, if present (don't worry if any are missing):

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: ads_optimizer - {9C8A568E-4201-478a-8536-526CF371D2E2} - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\NSJ59.DLL


Check (tick) the following lines only if you have uninstalled SmartShopper:
O2 - BHO: SmartShopper - {2BA1C226-EC1B-4471-A65F-D0688AC6EE3A} - C:\Program Files\SmartShopper\Bin\2.0.24\SmrtShpr.dll
O9 - Extra button: SmartShopper - Compare product prices - {3CC3D8FE-F0E0-4dd1-A69A-8C56BCC7BEBF} - C:\Program Files\SmartShopper\Bin\2.0.24\SmrtShpr.dll
O9 - Extra button: SmartShopper - Compare travel rates - {3CC3D8FE-F0E0-4dd1-A69A-8C56BCC7BEC0} - C:\Program Files\SmartShopper\Bin\2.0.24\SmrtShpr.dll


Close down all programs, browsers and other open windows. Make sure that only the above items are checked and then click on Fix checked.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HijackThis will not remove all of the files relating to the fixed items. We therefore need to check this and delete them if necessary. First we need to make sure that you can see all of the files.
  • Click Start
  • Open My Computer
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options
  • Select the View tab
  • Advanced Settings:

If the program does not automatically update itself during installation, or you are unsure whether it has done so, please do the following:
  • Click the Update icon at the top and under Manual Update click the Start update button.
  • The program will either update or inform you that no update was available.

Boot to Safe Mode.

You will need to reboot your computer into Safe Mode for the next steps. It would be a good idea for you to print these instructions, as you will not have access to the internet.

Important: If you have an always on connection to the internet, physically disconnect that connection until you are finished with Safe Mode and have rebooted back into normal mode. I suggest that you print out these instructions.
  • Restart your computer.
  • Continually tap the F8 button as your computer is booting (a menu appears).
  • Use up-arrow key to select Safe Mode and press Enter.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Click on Start then My Computer, find the following files and folders (highlighted in red) and delete them, if present. Don't worry if any are missing, but please let me know.

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\NSJ59.DLL <- File only
C:\Program Files\SmartShopper\ <- Delete this folder only if you have uninstalled SmartShopper

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Run AVG Anti-Spyware:

Close all open windows and then start AVG Anti-Spyware, which you downloaded earlier
  • Click on Scanner on the toolbar.
  • Click on Complete System Scan to start the scan process.
  • Let the program scan your computer.
  • When the scan has finished, follow the instructions below:
    • Make sure that Set all elements to: shows Quarantine
    • Important: Click on the Apply all Actions button (*** This must done before saving the report ***)
    • When the program has finished, it will display the message All actions have been applied.
    • Then click the Save Scan Report button.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reboot in Normal Mode.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
