    1.) make sure your programs are up to date
    2.) try rebooting into safe mode and running them

    You have the "remove spaces after commas and periods" virus. Do a google search for appropriate virus removal schemes...

    Try Spybot.Install it with the default settings.There is an optional protection called Tea Timer or it might be the other one.I forget the names.One is on by default the other is not.Don't switch on or check what is not checked by default.Download the updates.If the updates fail go ahead and finish installing the program.Then you can open the program and choose the USA server for the updates.Run the scanner at least once after getting all the updates.The updates do have boxes that need checking next to them.It's a fairly small program and is easy to uninstall if you even need to or to reinstall it.

    Ad-Aware is suppose to have a fix for it in an update.I think Spybot got the fix a short time later.Have you updated these programs?

    The name of the adware infection is called adware "Lop".There is a special removal tool for it.Also run Adaware and check your "add/Remove" programs" for it.

    First and foremost, the threat we are affected by is called Adware.Lop.

    I did a search for 'cid' using Windows Search. I selected the option to search hidden files and folders as well as system files and folders. I found an entry labeled "CiD: partyfriendfinder.com," which I recognized as one of the main sites that pop up when using IE. It didn't point to a specific location on the computer, and it was listed as an Internet Link. I also checked my Add/Remove Programs entries to see if there was anything suspicious. CiD Help? Yah, suspicious. On a whim, I hit the Remove button and a window opened with a number code. It said that to prove I was a human and not a computer script, I had to enter the code. I did NOT do this, as it seems quite suspicious and will probably run code further infecting my computer.

    After doing some more searching online, I was led to info on Symantec's site calling this Adware.Lop. According to Symantec, "This risk can be detected only by Symantec products that support security risks." So, apparently we need Norton Antivirus tongue.gif That's the short version. I'll be installing the demo version and will report back. For more info, here is what I found online:

    From http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/uninstall/Cat-C.html ...

    "Add or Remove Programs entry for the downloader and installer for Adware-Lop. Targets browser behavior and displays advertisements. ... Read More"

    The 'Read More' link will take you to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/uninstall/2046/CiD-Help.html ...

    "This Add or Remove Programs entry corresponds to a program that is either malware, installs malware, or is bundled with malware.

    It is advised that you uninstall this program from your computer due to the above reasons. If this program gave you the option to not install the malware or adware during setup, and you chose that option, then it should be safe to leave the program installed. Please note that not all programs listed here will actually be uninstalled when you attempt to do so. In situations like this it is advised that you ask follow the steps in this guide in order to receive help cleaning your computer."

    This page identifies the threat as Adware.Lop. There is a link further down the page that takes you to Symantec's entry for Adware.Lop, which can be found at http://sarc.com/avcenter/venc/data/adware.lop.html

    removal instructions

    The following instructions pertain to all Symantec antivirus products that support security risk detection.

    1. Update the definitions.
    2. Run a full system scan.
    3. Delete any values added to the registry.

    For specific details on each of these steps, read the following instructions.

    1. To update the definitions
    To obtain the most recent definitions, start your Symantec program and run LiveUpdate.


    2. To run the scan

    1. Start your Symantec antivirus program, and then run a full system scan. Record the names of the file detected.
    2. If any files are detected, and depending on which software version you are using, you may see one or more of the following options:

    Note: This applies only to versions of Norton AntiVirus that support security risk detection. If you are running a version of Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition that supports security risk detection, and security risk detection has been enabled, you will only see a message box that gives the results of the scan. If you have questions in this situation, contact your network administrator.
    * Exclude (Not recommended): If you click this button, it will set the risk so that it is no longer detectable. That is, the antivirus program will keep the security risk on your computer and will no longer detect it to remove from your computer.

    * Ignore or Skip: This option tells the scanner to ignore the risk for this scan only. It will be detected again the next time that you run a scan.

    * Cancel: This option is new to Norton Antivirus 2005. It is used when Norton Antivirus 2005 has determined that it cannot delete a security risk. This Cancel option tells the scanner to ignore the risk for this scan only, and thus, the risk will be detected again the next time that you run a scan.

    To actually delete the security risk:
    o Click its file name (under the Filename column).
    o In the Item Information box that displays, write down the full path and file name.
    o Then use Windows Explorer to locate and delete the file.

    * Delete: This option will attempt to delete the detected files. In some cases, the scanner will not be able to do this.
    o If you see a message, "Delete Failed" (or similar message), manually delete the file.
    o Click the file name of the risk that is under the Filename column.
    o In the Item Information box that displays, write down the full path and file name.
    o Then use Windows Explorer to locate and delete the file.

    3. After the files are deleted, restart the computer and proceed with the next section.

    Important: If you are unable to start your Symantec antivirus product or the product reports that it cannot delete a detected file, you may need to stop the risk from running in order to remove it. To do this, run the scan in Safe mode. For instructions, read the document, How to start the computer in Safe Mode. Once you have restarted in Safe mode, run the scan again.

    After the files are deleted, restart the computer in Normal mode and proceed with the next section.

    Warning messages may be displayed when the computer is restarted, since the risk may not be fully removed at this point. You can ignore these messages and click OK. These messages will not appear when the computer is restarted after the removal instructions have been fully completed. The messages displayed may be similar to the following:

    Title: [FILE PATH]
    Message body: Windows cannot find [FILE NAME]. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.


    3. To delete the value from the registry
    Important: Symantec strongly recommends that you back up the registry before making any changes to it. Incorrect changes to the registry can result in permanent data loss or corrupted files. Modify the specified subkeys only. Read the document: How to make a backup of the Windows registry.

    1. Click Start > Run.
    2. Type regedit

    Then click OK.

    Note: If the registry editor fails to open the risk may have modified the registry to prevent access to the registry editor. Security Response has developed a tool to resolve this problem. Download and run this tool, and then continue with the removal.

    3. Click Edit > Find.

    4. Enter the name of the files recorded in step 2a.

    5. Click Find Next.

    You may be redirected to one of the following subkeys:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\[RANDOM CLSID]\InprocServer32
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\[RANDOM CLSID]\InprocServer32

    containing one of the values:

    "(Default)" = "%ProgramFiles%\[RANDOM FOLDER NAME]\[RANDOM FILE NAME]"
    "(Default)" = "%UserProfile%\Application Data\[RANDOM CHARACTERS].dll"

    6. Record the [RANDOM CLSID] in the above subkeys.

    7. In the right pane, delete any of the values:

    "(Default)" = "%ProgramFiles%\[RANDOM FOLDER NAME]\[RANDOM FILE NAME]"
    "(Default)" = "%UserProfile%\Application Data\[RANDOM CHARACTERS].dll"

    8. Click Edit > Find.

    9. Enter the [RANDOM CLSID] that was recorded in step 4f.

    10. Delete any subkeys found.

    11. Exit the Registry Editor

    System Mechanic 6 Pro has been the cause of some problems.I recommend unistalling it.For a maintaince program try Advanced WindowsCare v2 Personal 2.30.34691


    http://www.download.com/Advanced-Wi...614.html?part=dl-AdvancedW&subj=uo&tag=button




    A newer version here make you are downloadin the correct program here.Careful what you click.Try the Majorgeeks FL dowbload.

    http://majorgeeks.com/Advanced_WindowsCare_v2_Personal_d4991.html


    McAfee seems to miss a lot of things.I recommend uninstalling it and downloading AVG antivirus and Zone Alarm firewall.


    AVG

    http://filehippo.com/download_avg_antivirus/


    Zone Alarm

    http://filehippo.com/download_zonealarm_free/


    Zone Alarm seems to have the fewest conflicts with AVG.

    I'm not a fan of Windows Defender but it shouldn't cause problems.
