I clicked Reply thinking that would continue the thread and instead I accidentally closed it, so I am re-opening he thread with this post. My original post said:

I am running Malwarebytes freeware, CCleaner freeware, Spybots freeware, and AVG freeware. Each of these programs individually and combined is doing a good job or me and my Secunia score is 100% on the advanced program. However, I keep removing Right Media and everytime I run Spybots, there it is again. It seems it installs an e-mail address which it uses to send me unwanted advertising and pop-ups. Does anyone know how to remove this thing for good? If you do, please click us through it. Thank you.

I should have added that I am running IE8 in Windows SP with Service Pack3 on a Dell 710, so all of the links mentioned below apply only to Windows.

Anthony Wells reply with the link to Spybot Forums was useful. This is the first time I knew there was such a thing. Thank you, Anthony and I hope you will accept this post as my way of letting you know how I am doing. The quote from Nelson Mandala is right on.

Because of the Right Media cookie, I decided to review tools and safety in my Google toolbar. I discovered how badly In Private Browsing can wreck a toolbar.
After I got that straightened out I went through all the links on my desktop and in my toolbars to make sure everything works. I found access to the entire Spybot Search and Destroy website in Add or Remove Programs. The mouse clicks are: Add or Remove Programs>Change or Remove Programs> scroll down to Spybot Search and Destroy and click it>Click here for support information>
Support Information: http://www.safernetworking.org/index.php?.page=sup... (end mouse clicks) When you click on that it opens the website which you can then save to Favorites. The Spybot Search and Destroy website strip menu includes Forums, Support, Downloads, and Donate. There is a sidebar with more links and information. Spybot -Search & Destroy 2.0: beta release is now public, and can be downloaded! Maybe it will be able to remove Right Media? Experimental programs are not for me. Maybe some of the experts would like to try this.

For now, Right Media is gone. I ran all the security programs. I set up a restore point in Windows Restore, and I now know where to look for solutions if this Right Media cookie comes back again.

If someone does decide to continue this thread, please tell me which of the little gray buttons I should click so I don't accidentally close it?

I will be on vacation beginning 06/06/2011 to 06/14/2011 and away from my computer. May all of your cookies be chocolate chip, and all of your surfing be a beach.

Anthony,
There has been a fair amount of nonsense "tag on" posts to various threads in recent times that also contained advertisements.

I will lock this thread down until 14th June to protect it for U & Florence. I will make an entry for U on that date to bring it to the "top of the pile".

Thank you Anthony and Maurice. The day after I opened the Right Media 2 thread everything fell apart again. I still had some electronic banking to do and IE8 would not connect me to the website. Repair was beyond the capabilities of Systems Restore. Mark Draa is my paid computer help. He has been at this so long that he can still get computers that are on the verge of total obsolescence to run. He comes to the house, and he knows both my computer and the way I use it. I'm lucky. He was here an hour going through all of my settings. He opened the Spybot website and found the solution to the Right Media problem there. I have run Spybot several times and it has not shown up again. He also disconnected the Windows Firewall, he said it fights with AVG and I don't need it, especially since I run Spybot, Malwarebytes, and CCleaner and of course Secunia. I tend to think of these security systems as locks, and if one lock is good, two are better. So now I know it doesn't work that way and compatability is everything. Thank you again for making me aware of the Spybot website, and all of your help. My trip was wonderful once I got on my way.

Hi Florence ,

Pleased to hear that Mark was able to get back on course and that you are ready to go for the kill and get that cookie if it should sneak in .

Compatible protection that you - or at least Mark - understands and are happy with beats too many layers and particularly active guards fighting and clashing ; this often happens in the background and you do not find out until too late .

Not wishing to interfere in any way, I am curious as to whether you have a hardware firewall in your IP's modem or router and whether your AVG is just the AntiVirus software or the full suite with it's own software firewall ; you could ask Mark as he will know why I ask and he's the one who knows best :))

As for the Forum's grey buttons , every poster sees Reply and Quote initially ; after you make a post there is a "new" Edit button which appears and which reopens your post to alter it , but the next poster after you closes that option to you until your next time . Only the original poster (you in this case ) sees an Accept button under every guest post and this allows you to lock the post and gives the chosen one 5 bonus points . Secunia support and Maurice can lock and unlock posts if you - the op - make a mistake , you can email to support@secunia.com and ask them to unlock for you . Otherwise the system auto locks a thread after 7 days of non-usage ; Maurice very kindly made sure you were neither locked out permanently and did not get an email box of extraneous "Forum spam" .

If you don't want to bother Mark , you can lock now and always come back and create a new thread if you think we can help you :))

Most pleased to hear that you shone during your trip !!

Take care

Anthony

PS : I have just used the "Edit" button to add this ; if you have just the one computer and you rely on it for personal stuff eg: banking , do not run Beta software and do not download a (new to you) programme you are not completely sure about ; check it out at least on the vendor's own Forum or do some of your own web searching .

Hi Anthony and Maurice,
Thank you again, and I will then lock this thread down. The Right Media problem and more has been resolved, and the topic has shifted to compatable security systems and firewalls, so it is time to open a new thread. I printed out this thread, and I will consult with Mark about my firewalls and whether or not I need to subscribe to the full AVG suite.

As for Beta programs, there are enough glitches in the ones that have been released. I never intended to become an IT specialist; I'm glad for your expertise. To me, the computer is a tool that I need to know how to use to accomplish tasks. I don't need to know how the engine works to drive a car; there are mechanics who can fix them. As long as my car gets me from point A to point B, I'm happy. So with my computer.

Absolutely Florence , right with you there . My technical advisers (unpaid friends) keep me with enough info to stay on the road and not enough to be dangerous , apart my natural imprudence .

Take care

Anthony
