Hi @ all,
I have had the same problem 'pussypool' an my pc and I solved it this way...
1. I killed the mcc.exe app that was running as a current process (by using the Task Manager)
2. I deleted the mcc.exe app that was in my windows\system32 directory.
3. I deleted two files named as mcc.exe-1aeb8951.pf and mcc.exe-15688aa5.pf that were in my
4. I deleted the entire hkey_current_user\software\media codecs registry key
5. I removed the registry value that was causing the app to automatically restart when rebooting.
That registry value is in hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run and
it launches the mcc.exe application, referring to it as multimedia codecs.
Good luck and greetings from Germany

ALL of the 04 items will reappear every single time after a restart - useless and timewasting to eliminate, unless one would want to run a batch file of hijackthis at boottime. Except for nwiz.exe, Jet Detect, and Nero check, I would agree that most of those could dissappear. However he must keep the OSA.EXE in if he is running XP (not needed if Win2000) OS, otherwise he might find himself being asked to load OfficeXP setup disk everytime he runs an Office program - this is common problem, in addition removing OSA.EXE and UpdReg.EXE can cause problems with Office updates NEVER being applied successfully (failing at the site).
The ONLY 2 items which absolutely must go are the akamai.net line and the wildtangent line - these are there BECAUSE he visited the 2 porn sites - that is the ONLY place you can get akamai stuff and usually gaming sites AND porn sites will also use wildtangent - unfortunately the wildtangent may just have to stay for game site use, but he first must lose it and then go back to the game sites to re-get the wildtangent from them. Wildtangent is distributed to its customers in wildly different configurations (that's how they named the company), this is why he can have wildtangent on the computer from a game site and NOT be hijacked, or have wildtangent from a porn site and HAVE the browser hijacked.
Browser hijacking does NOT occur in Mozilla - ever. At least not yet.

OK, what I just posted above was supposed to go into another page/rpely about some guy with a browser popup/hijack issue.\

I have slightly different problem....
My internet Explorer opens up automatically and goes to following websites one after other .
After it completes one sequence it stays idle until i restart .The whole process goes on again every time i restart.
i killed this process by ending "countdown" in the task manager.
i got rid of this by reamoving something called "adobeProcessloader" using "hijack this" .it had an icon of a usual MS visual basic program.
has anyone experienced this?....whats the best solution to this problem?...any comments?
