Use updated spybot, ad-aware SE, and AVG. Look through the registry and clean it up. This one sucks. It took me several hours over several days to get rid of it.

Are you effing serious? I cant launch CoH... I'm guessing this is the culprit seeing that it uses a browser at first to check for updates. I was ready to play all night long after days without gaming! :|

I've already scanned with Ad Aware and Spybot, I'll try out AVG but I've got Norton on here and it didnt pick up anything.

What a bad night

Yeah, it took quite a while. I had 2 other things on my system, being "search extender" and "home shopping assistant". I found out that the good folks at Stopzilla are responsible for two of them, lousy scammers. This is one of those programs that automatically undeletes its component files, so the best way to get through it is registry hunting.

Grab yourself a box of :cookie:s...

I'm going through the process noted on Major Geeks to help clean the system fully of everything and anything. First AV scan is going on now, and I'm going to bed.

Ouch, that sucks... Getting her her own PC (and locking her out of yours) an option?
