Once you've followed ALL the steps in this topic, then post this question, detailing what you've found and what you've done, along with a HijackThis log in another post in the PC Questions and Answers forum, not in this post, please.
Don't just run Spybot and Ad-Aware and post a log, do the on-line scans, do CWShredder too.

Question

I have a ? for you! I'm stuck with this NewNet.net junk! Norton says it's a threat, is it? I have SpyBot S&D, Adaware SE. They don't show it as a threat. I Have also run the programs Crockett gave us,but, CW Cruncher doesn't show any threats. HiJack-this does. I have tried to unregister the newnet.net6_38.dll file to no avail! I guess this is what they call "DLL HELL?" Help!

What application from Norton says it's a threat?
HijackThis cannot show it as a threat. It does not know right from wrong. It only shows the probable areas where these nasties reside. So how do you know?

HiJack This said it could be a threat, but Norton AV 2004 says it is . I don't use IE anymore if I can help it, but have noticed lately with Firefox ,they is more junk coming to my puter. Adaware is great, as is Spybot, but this Newnet is more a pest than anthing!

I'll tell you again. HijackThis could not have told you that it is a threat as it does not know right from wrong.
You might have looked at a HijackThis analysis site which is different and not always correct either. The only people who should be using these analysis sites are those who know how to research those entries.

What exactly did NAV label it as. Can you post exactly what it said? I would believe them as I've never seen NAV have a false positive.

Sorry I mislead you on the HiJack this! It actually said when I pressed for info on it that "this part of scan checks for several suspicious entries that auto-load when Windows Starts"
The below is what NAV said as a threat alert:
Source: C:\Program Files\NewDotNet\newdotnet6_38.dll
Description: The file C:\Program Files\NewDotNet\newdotnet6_38.dll is a Adware threat.
Click for more information about this threat : Adware.NDotNet

I keep trying to get rid of it & Am hoping that it hasn't already done it's damage! I'm a babe-in-the-woods on this stuff!

Bottom line...it needs to go.
whatever NAV tells you is bad, is bad. Believe them.
If it can't fix it, quarantine it then delete it.

Nice to know someone out there is willing to take so much time to put together so much information to help prevent the barrage of garbage out there waiting to infest our computers.
It`s a sad state of affairs really and a sign of the times when people have to put up so many defenses on their computers to help prevent the sick,demented work of the evildoers from invading our computers.
Thank you Crockett and thank you to the many other helpful people here at Worldstart who continually provide problem solving knowledge to us all.

My ex 'repaired' my computer. I ran ad-aware and keep getting new things deleted each time. But, he installed avast! when he was here as well. Does it do a better job - should I keep/use both? Also, how can I tell if he put a worm on my computer? He seems to know more than he should . . . Thanks!

I think he likes you.

Ad-Aware is an AntiSpyware scanner, while Avast! is an AntiVirus scanner, both are needed and do different jobs. The first helps get rid of spyware which may come onto your computer unknowingly.
The second, Avast!, helps keep viruses off your computer.
Both applications as is aren't enough as newer spyware and viruses are made constantly. They have newer "definitions" to keep them up-to-date. You can set them to check automatically from within each program or just visit this forum for posted updates.

How can you tell?.....follow the first few steps in this sticky so that you do scans of Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, CWShredder and free on-line scans.

Thanks, Marci. I will not take all the credit as I learned alot about Hijacked computers and how to deal with them from some great people in other security forums, taking their ideas with some of my own to come up with a plan of attack.
