I am willing to try anything at this point! LOL I have Zone Alarm,Avast Malawarebytes, Spybot & adaware!!! He always has problems and of course it is NOT his fault Wink

Will not hurt to try :)

In reply to: Thanks

Not his fault for sure if this fixes it Grin
If not, we got to blame IE Wink

sad news

In reply to: Will not hurt to try :)

it is still popping up Sad Now what to do? I got rid of a lot of malaware, spyware and also some trojans after all of that this thing started, I am at a complete loss. Also had to uninstall IE8 and reinstall it. Part of the menu board was black with strange icons and after I ran the fixit program you suggested the menu bar did go back to normal, so some help there. Thanks:) Ready to pitch the whole shebang out the back door, LOL

We need to troubleshoot then

In reply to: sad news

Sorry it's still popping-up.

Can you try to run a scan using Malaware (it's only a scanner with no removal engine)
Please post back if there's any thing it finds that other tools did not.

To start troubleshooting IE8, try opening IE8 in no-adds mode. It's in the Accessories>System Tools>IE8 no add-ons mode. Please tell us if the dialogue or error on memory continue to appear and if the menu bar is still missing.

will do

In reply to: We need to troubleshoot then

I put no add ons in his IE8 So we will try this and report back, after he quits playing his games!!! LOL I do a lot of work on his PC after he goes to bed.

Hope he sleeps well and sound then :D

In reply to: will do

So you can attend on this soon Wink

Take your time Happy

this is what it found

In reply to: ROFL. Be nice to the PC and husband :D

I have not seen this one before. Trymedia HKEY local machine\software\Trymedia Systems
and \Active MARK software
it found these two only

It's known as adware

In reply to: this is what it found


Web of Trust flags it http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/www.trymedia.com
SiteAdvisor found no problem with the said company but look at the comment: http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/trymedia.com

"slow computer (usually)
- big CPU strain - look in Task Manager and if you see that the value is almost always between 40% and 100% your computer is surely infected with adware - or, if you have got Windows 7, you can use the widget that monitors CPU strain
- adds that occur when you doubleclick on shortcut to your browser, usually a few seconds before you see your home page (can destroy a theme in Firefox if you have got Personas)
- presence of folder called TryMedia in Program Files

More info:http://www.pctools.com/mrc/infections/id/Adware.Trymedia/"

I suggest removing Trymedia and Active Mark. Active Mark is also from Trymedia.

See if the memory error when opening IE8 will be gone if those are removed.

BTW, have you tried to run IE8 with no add-ons mode? Did it show the menu bar and did the memory error appeared?

will do all of the above

In reply to: It's known as adware

husband said it seems to pop up when he is using Yahoo!!! It just found a trojan which is Trojan.Win32.Fake Av!IK

I didn't put on any add ons in his IE8
All of the other programs I have used only found 4 problems, LOL

I have it doing a full scan now

In reply to: this is what it found

will report when it's finished, so far it has found 11 items:(

Thank you so much Donna:)

In reply to: I have it doing a full scan now

I was going to pay the 40 bucks as this is the first of all the scans that has found so much. But the freebie is very welcome.
You are appreciated:)

You're welcome!

This is in response to your post: http://forums.cnet.com/5208-6132_102-0.html?messageID=3261162#3261162
Blame the forum software Grin

Anyway, glad they continue to provide free scanner and remover. It's good to scan using MBAM, SUPERAntiSpyware and A-squared Free because they have different detections and frequency of updates. Just quarantine first just in case any of them found a False detection. It happens often especially with A2.

Can I Add

In reply to: that is all

I'm going to anyway! Silly

I think you deserve TWO awards. And they're both "Hangin' In There" awards.

One is for "Hangin' in There" and following through with your problem.


One is for "Hangin' in There" and keeping the hubby! Devil (I would have "dumped him" after the first problem. Shocked )

I truly hope you get the issue resolved..
