Angry SOAK:jeired uninstall

My wife let her PC get infected with this scumware that just generates pop-up after pop-up. Adaware (sorta) removes it, but upon reboot it just reappears. I'm googling for a solution but everything appears to be other sites riddled with more adware, or "you gotta pay to see the solution". Anyone have any ideas?

The more pessimistic sites I've seen say the only real cure is fdisk c:

It would serve her right if she lost her PC for a few days until I decided to fix it. I tell her not to let things install, but it just goes in one ear and out the other.

With all the crap I see she has on this thing, maybe fdisk isn't such a bad idea.

Bad day for virii today, one of the main test stations got hit with Sasser and we have to wait for the help desk to come and fix it. Of course they don't care that it's the end of the quarter and it's imperative to get this machine working to meet shipments.

added: There's also adroar and TV Media and who knows what else on this thing.

You can try Spybot, it does a great job overall, a bit better than AdAware imho.

If you know the virus name, google for it.

Manual removal instructions can be found at the bottom of the page here.

You can also remove the CleverIEhooker using CWShredder & HiJack This. Basic instructions are here.

Have fun...it's a messy one.

When you do scan with Adaware and Spybot be sure you're NOT online. Physically unplug the cable.

You'll probably need to do a few scans of each, then manually remove any remaining files. The easy stuff is just in program files, or the root of C. A lot of this spyware will redownload itself if there is any file remaining, which is why it's important to do all the cleanup offline.

The list of stuff on this thing is mindboggling.

I guess the only way to make sure this is off the internet is to shut down the access point, since it has internal wireless.

Ugh. Does taking her off the administrator list for this computer help any?

Removing her admin priviledges will probably help. Just make sure she doesn't know the passwords to get around it.

You may also want to install FireFox and make it the default browser.

One of the anti-spyware programs I'm starting to like is Pest Patrol. It's $39.95 but the EULA says the eval is good for one year. It's got a klunky interface but they give very thorough descriptions of everything it finds.

You can take away admin privileges, but unless you make her a regular user it won't do much good. Power users still have access to the registry and to install applications. Users can't do it but also can't do a lot of other things. If this is her primary PC, she probably would get annoyed really quickly if she's only a user.

Thanks for everyone's help. Finally got it cleaned this afternoon, hopefully it stays that way. Most important thing was to do everything in safe mode, as it all kept coming back.

Actually taking away admin privileges doesn't help much at all. This stuff is very similar to viruses. It doesn't matter what your rights are on the machine it's getting installed anyway. A good way to prevent it from coming back though is a program called Spywareblaster. I saw Leo hocking it on The ScreenSavers last night. I downloaded and checked it out this morning, and it looks pretty good. Like virus software you'll have to keep it updated, but you have to pay for auto updates. I wouldn't. I'd just click and update it every so often manually. Like before I quit for the day. Only takes a sec to do. You can pick it up here

I'm going to do so testing with it to see just how well it works, on a user here who's notorious for having spyware on her computer but claims she never downloads anything , stuff just appears. Like that darn weatherbug.... argh
