Spyware – Your Web Browser is the Culprit!

The best program to remove an errant Browser Help Object is HijackThis. This program was originally designed to remove homepage hijackers and gradually morphed into an all-around removal tool for everything. If there’s any one tool that I couldn’t part with it’s HJT.

To start, download HijackThis 1991. Once you’ve got it, open it. Clickrepparttar button that says “Do a system scan only”. Following that, scroll down torepparttar 141225 items labeled 02 – BHO. Remove anything here that looks suspicious. Internet Explorer does not require any BHO’s to run. Just keep an eye onrepparttar 141226 path that it loads from, andrepparttar 141227 name ofrepparttar 141228 file. A legitimate one will be fairly easy to spot, as it’ll have a legit title and OK looking path.

Ifrepparttar 141229 filename looks like it was randomly made, like ASGSRT32.DLL or whatnot then there’s a good 90% chance that it’s bad. Even if you do remove one that’s good, you can always userepparttar 141230 restore feature of HJT to bring it back.

If you need any other HijackThis help then readrepparttar 141231 previous link.

Managing and Rotating Wallpaper:

If you want to frequently change your desktop wallpaper, or have it automatically rotate through a set of photos, there are many wallpaper managers that will do this for you. The one that I use is freeware and is called Wallpaper Master. You can download it from http://jamesgart.com/wallpaperchanger/index.html
