HBO.Adware.Estalive

1150 Views 9 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Byteman
After being infected with spyware I bought Panda ActiveScan Pro, Spyware Doctor and Bitdefender v10, my computer went pretty well for a couple weeks but suddenly it started to perform erratically, specially logging to the internet although I have a ADSL connection it also wouldn't let me change my wallpaper. After running Spyware Doctor and Panda ActiveScan Pro they showed no results but Bitdefender v10 showed an infection of HBO.Adware.Estalive but rerunning each of this 3 programs a thousand times I can not get rid of it. I'm crying for suggestions.

Hi,
I'm not an expert but I suggest this is the first step you need to take: You need to include a log from HijackThis (HJT). Try this link

http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

Download and Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Once you've posted the log you need to wait for advice from a qualified member as to what to do next. You'll see a gold shield next to their name which shows they are qualified to take you through the next stages. I hope this helps … and good luck!

Richard.
