Pokapoka79.exe . . .
I posted this somewhere else on this forum:
I know this is some sort of spyware, but none of my spyware programs seem to be able to get rid of it, cause it keeps coming back . . .

Pokapoka79.exe

I think it's a toolbar for IE . . And no, IE won't let me turn it off, and when I try to remove it, it keeps recreating itself in the folder.

How do I get rid of it . . ? . .

But if you can help me with some other possible problems, that would help too ^___^

Thanks in advance :D

Hello and Welcome

Please subscribe to this thread to get immediate notification of fixes as soon as they are posted.

You do not appear to have an anti-virus application installed on this machine. Let's start off by getting you a free but yet effective antivirus program. Please choose one from any of these 3 programs which are free for home use:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Download LQfix.exe and place it on your desktop.

Doubleclick LQfix.exe and click install.

Leave the default settings. If you change them, the fix will fail.

Make sure 'Launch LQfix' is checked. After clicking finish in the install, the fix will start.

Follow the prompts on the screen.

Your system will reboot afterwards.

Please be patient after reboot, because there is a script running in the background.


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Once you have completed the above, please continue with the instructions below.


Uninstall the following programs, if present, using Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs:
  • MyWebSearch
    ViewPoint

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

If you have not done so already, please enable the viewing of Hidden files
From Windows Explorer, go to Tools>Folder Options> View tab.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Download and install CleanUp!

Open Cleanup! by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
Set the program up as follows:
Click "Options..."
Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
Put a check next to the following (Make sure nothing else is checked!):
  • Empty Recycle Bins
  • Delete Cookies
  • Delete Prefetch files
  • Cleanup! All Users
Click OK
Press the CleanUp! button to start the program.

It may ask you to reboot at the end, click NO.


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Please perform an online scan with Internet Explorer at one of the following sites:
Take note the names and locations of any file it detects but fails to clean.
* Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Download Trend Micro™ Anti-Spyware (by clicking the "Scan and Clean your PC" button).
  • Double-click the tmas-web-scan.exe icon
  • It will say "Loading TrendMicro definitions".
  • Click "Start Scan"
After it's done scanning, click "Scan Results"
  • Make sure all items found have a check next to them, then click "Clean Threats Now".
  • Click Exit.
Reboot your computer. I then need you to repeat the same procedure above again... using the TrendMicro tool. I need the log from the second scan/clean...NOT the first...as this will contain what’

It would produce a log called "Antispyware.log", please double-click that log and copy the entire contents and paste them here.


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


In your next post, please include fresh logs from:
  1. HiJackThis
    [*] Online scan
    [*] Antispyware.log
Please provide details of any problems you encountered whilst performing the above steps & update us on how the computer behaves now

C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\
C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\
It won't let me delete either of the folders because something in there is in use, but it won't show up in the hijackthis log again . . .

Download and install CleanUp!

Open Cleanup! by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
Set the program up as follows:

Delete Prefetch files
Cleanup! All Users
Click OK
Press the CleanUp! button to start the program.

It may ask you to reboot at the end, click NO.
When I try to run the .exe, this is what shows up:

Incorrect Size: c:\documents and settings\administrator\desktop\cleanup40.exe. Actual size is 110706 bytes, but should be 318775bytes. Download the setup again.

Hello KingofLodis,

If you haven't already, try deleting those folders from Safe Mode:

1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

Delete your download of CleanUp and try downloading it again.
