    I don't know what I did but there are 2 or 3 days ago I'm being importuned with sites such as

    http://argentbux.... http://abhsoft... http://radio-dj... http://trahwija.... http://winmoney... http://safearena...
    and so on.

    What must I do to eliminate these intrusions without to format or reinstall the Windows XP?


    Thank you for your help.

  2. first see if your computer has been infected with spyware/malware. malwarebytes, adaware, trojanhunter and other scanners should find most junk.

    Restart your machine in safe mode (press F8 ) before you run the anti-spyware app to really kill the infection.

    I had one a while back where that didn't work. Not by itself, anyway. I had to both disconnect from the internet as well as start in safe mode to finally get rid of it. minidv2dvd's suggestion of Malwarebytes is a good one. That's what finally got rid of it for me. You don't need the paid version:

    Before nulling the infection you should disable system restore, otherwise re-infestation could take place ... re-enable after cleanup.

    Thank you to everyone that answered me and helped me.

    But, Bjs, how can I disable system restore and re-enable after the cleaning?

    Cheers.


    P.S. - By the way, AVG ended its scanning and the results ( Infected, warnings, etc.) were all 0.

  8. Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore->System Restore Settings.

    That's on XP. Dunno if it's different for others.

    Dont visit Poker sites ... I know people who did ... dumb

    Porno site ... ha ha ... I have two favorite sites ... send me a PM message if you interested.

    I dont want the way they do things at these two sites to change ... they are great ... so I wont mention them here.

    Most likely against the rules anyways. I use to have two yellow pillows above my avatar for almost a year

  13. I suggest also running http://www.superantispyware.com/index.html it will find things that MBAM doesn't and vice cersa.

    It also has a lot of handy tools in the repair tab under preferences.
