IE6 Hijacker - msg121.dll - removal help please

  Ben0012 21:51 25 Apr 2004

Daughter's PC on WIN ME has picked up a malware that causes IE5, a few moments after opening, to start opening additional pages that go to various advertising sites. I have identified (I think) this as msg121.dll and it comes from an advertising company at click here
I have heard there is a removal programme somewhere called kill2me but can't find it.
If anyone can assist either pointing me to kill2me or any other removal programme I will be grateful.
She is running AVG, Zonealarm, SpybotS&D and Adaware.

Kill2Me can be found at click here

I had a problem with Look2Me recently because it kept bringing up a ZestyFind window on my browser (most annoying!).

For some reason it wasn't a msg*.dll though, it was called wlock32.dll and I also had wlock32.cpy.dll on my system.

Ad-Aware got rid of it though (with latest update).

I also ran a registry patch, although I'm not sure this made any difference. I can email it to you if the above doesn't work.

Ran virus scan, adaware, spybot, then kill2me.
Just like that.
Also got rid of the "01buildbone" toolbar at the same time as a bonus.
Thanks all you guys.
