Don’t Think Twice, Remove 2ndThought Immediately

This annoying little bugger usually slips in unnoticed with other programs that are probably downloaded for free. Sometimes it appears in the form of a toolbar and sometimes it doesn’t. Either way, 2ndThought will monitor your Internet activities and deliver pop-up ads based on the content you have viewed.

2ndThought’s activities cause your computer to work slower and will also slow your Internet connection. It could also have other adware bundled with it. Therefore, you should have it removed as soon as you can.

In order to remove it manually, you must delete the following files:

[%PROFILE_TEMP%]\randreco.exe
[%PROFILE_TEMP%]\THI1EA2.tmp\VoiceIp.dll
[%PROFILE_TEMP%]\THI1EA2.tmp\VoiceIP.inf
[%PROFILE_TEMP%]\THI75D.tmp\VoiceIp.dll
[%PROFILE_TEMP%]\THI75D.tmp\VoiceIP.inf

[%SYSTEM%]\automove.exe

You must also delete the following folders:

[%PROGRAM_FILES_COMMON%]\slmss
[%PROFILE_TEMP%]\132.zip
[%PROGRAM_FILES%]\common files\slmss
