Remove Lop Spyware
About Lop

Lop is a family of programs that set your start page and IE's search features to use the site lop.com ('Live Online Portal') or one of its clone sites. Known lop sites include:

    * aavc.com
 ...long list...
    * wflu.com

Remove this spyware using Spyware Doctor

Lop has many variants:

lop/Trinity: an old variant of the software, which only adds the shortcuts and does the homepage/search hijacking.

lop/Dialer is a plain porn dialler delivered with the startup task.

lop/Toolbar : includes the startup task and an IE toolbar with more lop links. This variant can be detected by the script at this site.

lop/Rnd : a version of lop/Toolbar that uses completely random class IDs as well as pseudo-random filenames, making it difficult to detect.

lop/AYB : a URL protocol module used by the MP3Search (or similar) minibrowser launched by the startup task. This variant can be detected by the script at this site; having it is usually a sign you may have lop/Toolbar or lop/Rnd as well.

lop/Loader : an installer process that opens a small progress window in the middle of the screen and loads and runs both lop/AYB and either lop/Toolbar or lop/Rnd.

lop/IMZ : an installer process like lop/Loader, but installing lop/Rnd and FavoriteMan/IMZ . lop/AYB is not installed, so the script at this script usually cannot detect lop/IMZ installations.

lop/Active : an update of lop/Rnd which monitors web pages viewed for keywords, and sets the buttons in the toolbar to match. This also opens a floating window on the desktop on startup. Can also hijack to active-max.com, mysearchnow.com, searchwebnow.com or find-quick.com as well as one of the traditional four-letter domains.

Once you have this removed I would advise you to do web browsing with the Mozilla Firefox browser which is a lot less prone to spyware.

You can download it here :-
