    Hello.

    If you post the log of the actual detection you are getting, someone will be better able to advise you.

    Run another scan.
    When the scan completes, right click on the results list, select "Copy results to clipboard".
    Then paste (Ctrl+V) those results to a new post in this thread.

    Best regards.

    FWIW when I ran SpyBot it told me I had mailskinner.rtk. I chose not to fix it, and ran:

    1. A Norton scan which was clean.
    2. A Kaspersky online scan which was clean.
    3. An Ewido online scan which was clean.
    4. An AdAware scan which was clean.
    5. HijackThis which showed nothing suspicious.
    6. ComboFix which didn't show anything odd.

    I then ran SpyBot again and it no longer reported mailskinner.rtk.

    When running the Kaspersky scan it required me to uninstall an earlier version before installing the current one, so I'm wondering if the apparent disappearance of mailskinner.rtk may have been related to that uninstall?

    On another forum at another site I prepped for the hijack log with this:
    Preparations per the sticky on Hijack this logs:

    Ran all updates and scans on:
    -Windows XP home w/SP-2
    -AdAware SE
    -All 4) Kaspersky scans: no threats (even rootkits)
    -Spyware Blaster: no updates and running.
    -Window$ (useless) Defender updated to KB915597 (Definition 1.21.2947.3), scanned: detected nothing (surprise)

    Spybot: the particulars on MailSkinner:
    --- Search result list ---

    Panda will not open: period, even if I shut Kaspersky totally down and turn off my pop-up blocker: AdSubtract.

    I am kinda familiar with Trend Micro's anti-virus.
    I had the full version and junked it.

    They might find something, but (of course) they want $$ I don’t have to fix anything.

    ______________________________________

    When you perform a scan, it deletes MailSkinner: all 4) regiistry entries.

    Reboot: There the frapping thing is again.

    Manually delete the new regisrty entries, Reboot: There the frapping thing is again.

    I am at my wit's end trying to get rid of of this!

    If you google it there's a support email you send a grip to, but they also claim it's dangerous to even visit this site:

    It states:
    Mail Skinner Installation
    This site may harm your computer.
    Please email to support AT mailskinner.com in case of any problem with the Software that is not remedied by reinstalling it. CONDITIONS 1. ...
    mailskinner.com/install/ licence.php?grpid=&nums=&bannerid=

    ANY solutions much appreciated!

    Kaspersky support claims they do not have any information on this piece of trojan: Nonsense!

    Spybot wil remove it once.

    Reboot: there it is AGAIN! (going on since 9/26/07) your last update.

    Remove all entries manually with regedit: Reboot: there it is AGAIN!

    I've been surfing the forums for a fix: Kspersky claims they know nothing about it: BS

    Hello.

    At the Kaspersky forums this is being reported as a false positive: http://forum.kaspersky.com/lofiversi...hp/t49084.html

    I have made a note of the topics for a detective's attention and he will confirm when on-line.

    Best regards.

    I got:

    MailSkinner.rtk: Root class (Registry key, nothing done)
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\OutlookAddin.Addin

    MailSkinner.rtk: Root class (Registry key, nothing done)
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\OutlookAddin.Addin.1

    MailSkinner.rtk: Class ID (Registry key, nothing done)
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\CLSID\{C704648D-6030-47E9-ADBA-1E13B6A784AE}

    But as far as I can see:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{C704648D-6030-47E9-ADBA-1E13B6A784AE}\InprocServer32

    is set to:

    C:\Program Files\IVT Corporation\BlueSoleil\outlookAddin.dll

    part of the BlueSoleil Bluetooth Plug and Play Module.

    I submitted a copy of "outlookAddin.dll" to VirusTotal which didn't identify any problems.

    Exclamation The solution to MailSkinnner: maybe. Time sensitive.

    I got an email from visititing mailskinner.com, which google claims is dangerous to visit.
    So I used a 'puter at the public library

    It said:

    Dear user

    Please click on the following link to download the PromoRemover software to uninstall our advertising component:

    http://www03.pc-on-internet.com/unin...0929222128.zip

    You have 24 hours
    to download our uninstalling software. Once you have downloaded it, just unzip the file and run "promoremover.exe".

    After executing "promoremover.exe", you will no longer have any pop-ups from this software on your computer. However, you will not be able to use the free functionalities of the software anymore.

    We hope that you will soon find one of our softwares that you find worth seeing pop-ups forů

    Best regard,

    The Favorit technical team
    When I try to do that Windows claims: my security settings will not allow the download of this file.

    One of my weaknesses is zip files.

    Furthermore: I'm leary of the 24 hour deal, and the fact that Spybot detected it as Spyware.

    This is supposed to fix MailSkinner which appears harmless, but so does my cat: who'll BITE you in a heartbeat.

    Does anyone have the expertise to tell if this is dangerous?
