Hi there. Recently some pop-ups have been occurring. Some are of an adult nature, others are not. They come under a name of 'oddyseus marketing', and happen usually when i change from website to website, or do a search in google or similar. I have run SpyBot and deleted anything found, but this doesnt seem to have done anything.I have found these programs running in Processes, which arent usuallly running: ause3.exe: mscan.exe: msckin.exe, but cannot find out what they are as they aren't on the list of processes i have previously been given a link to. I have found an explanation for a similarly-named .exe, which is apparently part of 'ClientMan' spyware, but cant find an explanation for the exact names. I have found the 'ClientMan' folder on my PC. I run Windows XP. Any help in solving this frustrating problem much appreciated, Thanks A Lot
Thanks a lot guys, yes I have also used Ad-Aware both with latest updates but didnt solve the problem, but it did find other spyware that SpyBot hadnt so thankyou. I have now managed (or, hopefully, will have done soon, in the process now) to get rid of the ClientMan (which contains mscan, msckin ause3) using the above link. Thanks again people, as ever quick and helpful. Thanks once more
HELP! Sorry to bother you again! When entering commands into command prompt (as in Vog's link), do i do each ine shown then press return, followed by next line etc? (You will know what I mean if you follow Vog's link. Thanks again
OK thanks will do. I have now managed to these DOS Command things, with a 'unregister successful' message appearing. HOWEVER, when I try to delete the ClientMan folder, it wont let me because access is denied to the .dll files. I have however managed to delete the rest of the files. Also, in the regitary editor, I couldnt find the Key the instructions (see Vog's link) gave me. Could this be to do with problem? Thanks in advance
