Adware.Agent won't go away

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

MWB Realt Time protection keeps detecting Adware.Agent I need to try to nib the source in the bud.

Vista 64bit

Adware.Agent in question is :

C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Today\.....

" "\Automated Content Enhancer\....

" "\Customized Platform\..........

et cetera:

There was a subsequent cleanup with MWB, then Super Anti Spyware, Eset Online Scan, et cetera.

Those full scans came up clean.

Every Subsequent MWB full scan has come up clean.

Running FSecure online scan right now.

The folders that keep making MWB pop up don't exist.

What do you guys need from me?

Here's my log file guys! Thanks for your help.

Windows Vista 64bit

Malicious Software Removal Quick scan (clean)

Last SuperAntiSpwyare (Portable version) - full scan - clean

Spybot Search and Destroy found some cookies and Zango entries.

Yesterday, the real time protection in MWB was barking at me all day about folders and files that don't exist. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling MWB in the event that there was some sort of anomoly of detecting "phantom" files and folders.

I've shown hidden files/folders, and unhid protected files/folders as well. Those folders and files don't exist.

Here's the protection log from today, Though yesterday's is much longer

Hi Paul,

From what I understand here, those folders were detected previously? Now they are gone, but the PM module (protection module) still finds them? In that case it's because of the Vista superfetch feature.

So, to resolve this, disable superfetch, reboot, clean the prefetch folder and enable superfetch again. That should fix it.
