PigSearch is More Dangerous than You Might Think

PigSearch is a typical adware program with just a little bit more. It generates pop-up ads that get in the way and slow down the infected computer. However, it goes one step further and highlights certain words in your browser and links them to websites that it advertises.

The worst part about PigSearch is that it usually has other adware bundled up with it. If PigSearch has infected your computer, then you probably have quite the infestation.

If you wish to manually remove PigSearch though, you must delete these files:

[%SYSTEM%]\CharSet.dll
[%SYSTEM%]\CreateDomTree.dll
[%SYSTEM%]\drivers\mspcidrv.sys

Then you must delete the following registry values:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\services\internet connection manager, description=
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\services\internet connection manager, displayname=
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\services\internet connection manager, errorcontrol=
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\services\internet connection manager, imagepath=
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\services\internet connection manager, objectname=
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\services\internet connection manager, start=
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\services\internet connection manager, type=
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\services\internet connection manager\security, security=
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\services\mspath, path=

Finally, you must delete the following registry keys:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ntdll32.advance
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ntdll32.advance.1
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\clsid\{8e25ac4a-b129-451b-bee2-3b510bb751da}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\clsid\{d0903a3b-f0ea-434a-9742-98c5335c7946}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\iehelper.bho
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\iehelper.bho.1
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\interface\{900f9840-be29-48cc-8a4e-acad94164139}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\typelib\{8899d7f9-c544-4bab-8cdc-d16c9d6b3af4}
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\browser helper objects\{8e25ac4a-b129-451b-bee2-3b510bb751da}
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\browser helper objects\{d0903a3b-f0ea-434a-9742-98c5335c7946}
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\enum\root\legacy_mspcidrv
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\services\mspcidrv
