View Full Version : marketflip.fakesearchanddestroy

2008-05-18, 15:05
Search and Destroy 1.5.2 identifies 4 entries of marketflip.fakesearchanddestroy but Fixing the problem closes the program down.

Task manager shows two S and D programs which I assume one to be the fake one.

Help to remove this would be appreciated as Search and Destroy fails to fix it.

XP SP2 - all updates
AVG free 7.5 - latest

Hi there,

Open SpyBot
Check for problems, do not 'fix' any items found.
Switch Spybot S&D to advanced mode
Navigate to tools - view report
Click "view report"
Click "export" to save the report to a text file and paste the top of the report showing the detection here please.

Thanks Tash,

This is a particular bad one.

After scan, Switching to Advanced, or starting in Advanced and clicking on Tools, closes the program down.

Hi radiolink,

Sorry to hear of the problem, please follow the procedure in this link to produce a HJT log:
