How to get rid of http://gg91mm.cn pop-ups?

Hi Guru and Experts,
One of my friends' computer got hijacked by this site -- http://gg91mm.cn pop-ups on his Windows server 2003 machine. I manually added this site to the Restricted Site within IE 6. I also ran SpySweeper and Spybot anti-malware programs and Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 anti-virus program. It got blocked from popping up on the screen, but it still appears within the Task Manager Applications tab from time to time. I believe it is related to metsystem.exe file/spyware, but I'm not quite sure.
How can I get rid of it totally?
Thanks.
Matt

Malware keeps popping up on my screen. To get into Internet Explorer I have to click on and then delete because Malware keeps coming up on the screen. I have to keep on clicking onto Internet Explorer...


You need a decent antivirus program to tackle this.

if its already infected your pc, you have following option:

save all docs to external hdd or cd/dvd, and run recovery on pc/laptop. (back to original factory settings)

or take out hdd, attach it to another pc / laptop which is not infected and run virus scan on the infected hdd. (you will require appropriate SATA / IDE /USB connector cables for this process).

Let me know how you get on!

I had Norton Internet Security 2009 installed in my computer in August, 2009, and I am getting pop ups that my subscription is running out in 4 days.


Did you purchase the Norton Internet Security? If yes, then you need to verify with Symantec (Developer of Norton) if their program is a one-time purchase only or needs to get renewed every month or two.

Or there could be a possibility that you just need a new product code. Ask them if they could provide you one for free. Check the link below and you would be redirected to the Norton Web site:

I need to eliminate china on TV pop-up ad that occurs frequently on standard web-sites such as msn.com


It may well be some form of virus or spyware.

It may also be that you have too many applications running at once eg. lots of toolbars and instant message typ programs.

It can also happen on graphic intensive applications.

You should rule out nasty stuff first.

MBAM !

for a free one its pretty darned good !

From a CLEAN computer download and put on a flash drive.

Copy to your DESKTOP on the suspec computer.

Run it but dont change any options just use what it offers.

When its done let it clean anything it finds.

Its where I always start with an infected machine.

As for antivirus AVOID Norton or Mcafee but try the AVG FREE version MBAM should clean up without buying

Only continued use would require purchase As for too many applications that would be up to you to decide what you REALLY need and dont. Most toolbars are a waste of both time and space and can hog computers down. Maybe a good clean up is in order ?

It may just be a "leaking application"

These are badly coded programs that dont release memory when they should and just keep taking more to do the same job.

May I suggest you download
"hijackthis"

It is a program that can make a report on what you have running in such a way that you can post that information to certain sites and experts there will look at it.

They will then give you reccomendations as to how you can remove programs or fix some issues that may be upsetting your computer.

Dont post the log here but follow the nstructions and help the program offers to send it to one of the sites it will offer you.

If you understand startup lists you may even be able to spot som things yourself that you dont want to run and disable them from hijack this.

To eliminate popup AOL's SpyZapper No Longer Available


AOL FINALLY listed the way to remove this major annoyance.
And it actually WORKS.

Delete the SpyZapper components manually. Log in to your computer using the administrator username and password, and then search and delete the following files:
  • AOLszs.drv
  • settings.ini
  • OptScan.exe
Note: Generally these files are located as below:
AOLszs.drv & settings.ini files location:
  • In Windows Vista: C:\ProgramData\AOL
  • In Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\AOL
OptScan.exe file location:
  • In Windows Vista: C:\ProgramData\AOL.
  • In Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\AOL\C_AOL 9.1

Ultimate Cleaner Virus


Download AVG Free and AVG Antispyware Free fom this site:

http://free.grisoft.com/

Install both and run a Full System scan with each (they can be set going at the same time). This will probably take an hour or two so be patient.

Sounds like your computer has a Trojan - do not send money to the Ultimate Cleaner site as this is probably a case of FRAUD.

Good luck.
