NoAdware is a scam, wait forever while it scans, finds "suspicious" entries that registered Spybot and Spyware Doctor cant find, and then demands $29 to remove the "threats" it finds. Now that really is what I call a free Download
feel free to come back to me for the logs
lop popups make internet a living hell thanx for the removal software
The removal tool provided by www.lop.com contains the swizzor virus.

Anyone has other options to remove this pest ?
many times when you go to www.lop.com and go to help at the bottom of the page and try to download the uninstall program it says your current security settings wont let you download this program. to fix this go to tools->internet options->security->default level. than put the bar to low and click ok. now download the program and run it and lop will be gone.
Warning! do not use Hijack this,
use it but save the log and show it to some experts because u can do some real damage
Running the software may cause many 'dial-up connection' requests to appear if you are not connected. Windows seems to hang temporarily for a few minutes when this happens.
