Is Defogger working?

Recommended Posts


So, I have an annoying redirect problem. I downloaded and ran Malwarebytes and it found some problems which it removed, but which did not fix the redirect problem. So following the advice given to another poster experiencing the same problem, I've started running through the directions here: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=9573

I'm currently working through this portion:

If you're still experiencing issues after running the above procedures then please follow the instructions below.

Disable CD-ROM Emulation Software

o DeFogger - DisablePlease download the following tool DeFogger to your desktop.

o Double click DeFogger to run the tool.

o The application window will appear

o Click the Disable button to disable your CD Emulation drivers.

o Click Yes to continue

o A 'Finished!' message will appear

o Click OK

o DeFogger will now ask to reboot the machine - click OK

o IMPORTANT! If you receive an error message while running DeFogger, please post the log defogger_disable which will appear on your desktop.

o Do not re-enable these drivers until otherwise instructed.

but it seems to be stuck at the point where DeFogger is supposed to ask me to reboot my computer. I got the "Finished!" message, clicked ok, and now the program's just been sitting there open and apparantly not doing anything? for the last 10-15 minutes. It hasn't given me any error messages or anything. Should I restart my computer? Close DeFogger? Just move on to the next step?

Thanks so much, this place is a great resource!
