Dear Admins, superantispyware has overlooked the following

Recommended Posts

For some 2 weeks now, I have had problems with my web browser.

I would Open Internet Explorer and go to google search page and do a search on anything.......and click any link corresponding with my search and I was REDIRECTED off to some type of ad site or a site that had NOTHING to do with my actual search criteria.

A Virusremover2008 popup ad was also hindering the browser.

Each and every scan I ran found NOTHING. Seemed nothing could cure this irratic browser behavior, however, every scan I ran showed my computer free of adware or virus'.

Today I used the link on the superantispyware interface labeled " find out whats running on your computer!"

This scan discovered an unknown browser helper DLL file......IFMONK.DLL.

I checked the properties of this file and found it had been created about the time I started having problems with the browser.

I then tried to delete the file and sure enough.....it was being used by the system.

I then googled IFMONK.DLL only to find that there is NO INFORMATION REGARDING this file to be found anywhere. I mean NONE.

There is, however, a VALID system file named IFMON.DLL...........but NO IFMONK.DLL.

I then rebooted in safe mode and deleted IFMONK.DLL.

Like a miracle from God, the browser functions flawlessly now.

No virusremover2008 popups and no redirection from search pages.

Something you may want to look into.

Running win2000 professional.

This file caused a real problem with my system.

Love your scanner,

Regards,

HeLs
