    My computer keeps freaking out. I did a pop up scan it removed everything and then i rebooted. Everything loads and then I had some errors. So I ran McAfee VirusScan and it found this: SurfSideKick3\SskBho.dll

    I tell it to remove it and it says it cannot be cleaned. I go into my add/remove programs and there it is. So i remove it. And 10 seconds later i get the same message and its loaded on the computer again.


    How do i get this file off without having to reformat?

    SskBho.dll - Dangerous sskbho.dll Ssk.exe is Adware.SurfSideKick.
    Ssk.exe displays popup ads.
    Ssk.exe monitors Internet activity and intercepts search queries.
    Related files:
    - %Program Files%\SurfSideKick\Ssk.exe
    - %Program Files%\SurfSideKick\SskBho.dll - BHO
    - %Program Files%\SurfSideKick\SskCore.dll - URLSearchHooks
    Ssk.exe adds the value:
    "SurfSideKick" = "%Program Files%\SurfSideKick\Ssk.exe"
    to the Windows startup registry keys.
    Removal of SSK.exe:
    Kill SSK.exe process and remove it from Windows startup.
    Delete BHO object SskBho.dll from BHO list.
    Delete SskCore.dll from URLSeachHooks key.

    Boot up in safe mode (hit the F8 key a bunch of times between the bootup screen and the Windows Loading screen) and run the popup scan again. Safe mode won't run the popup program, so the popup program won't be able to reinstall itself when it realizes you deleted it off your hard drive.
