    First of all I want to say that I appreciate all the help I have received from MajorGeeks in the past. Thank you. :p


    Now, down to business. First of all the problem is not on this computer it is on my other house computer. Through a recent download we ended up picking up some malware called Cowabanga, Deluxe Communication .


    Here is what I have done to get rid of this. Each folder came with an uninstall so I tried that. I also tried to manually delete all folders but it seems that it only morphs itself in other folders.

    It has disabled my internet which forces me to use this other computer.


    I ran HJT and have attached it


    What can I do to get rid of this? Please help.:crybaby

    Please follow our standard cleaning procedures which are necessary for us to provide you support. Also there are steps included for installing, running, and posting HijackThis logs as attachments.
    • Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ & RUN ME FIRST Before Asking for Support
    • Make sure you check version numbers and get all updates.
    • Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.
    • After doing ALL of the above you still have a problem make sure you have booted to normal mode and run the steps in the below link to properly use HijackThis and attach a log:
    Make sure you also rename HijackThis.exe as suggested in the procedures. Use analyse.exe for the new name. This is very important due to some new infections going around.
    • When you return to make your next post, make sure you attach the following logs and that you have run these scans in the following order too:
      • CounterSpy
      • AVG Antispyware log - ONLY IF NEEDED you were not able to run CounterSpy
      • Bitdefender - from step 6
      • Panda Scan - from step 6
      • runkeys.txt - the log from GetRunKey.bat
      • newfiles.txt - the log from ShowNew.bat
      • HijackThis
    NOTE: You can only attach 3 files in a single message so it will require that you use two messages to attach all of these logs!
