lop.com beware, it installes the toolbar when you go to the site...i think. or its some other download.

i havent had any lop.com invasions since. Pain in the neck to get rid of isnt it? Also check your PC for a file called "belt.exe" it doesent show in task manager, it always seems to turn up when lop does, and its a spyware trojan.
lop.coms tool never works, i wouldnt even trust it, edited registry, ran spybot and adaware (adaware couldnt find most of it too, convinced me to dump the proggy) i had to reboot several times and rescan/manually clean before i got rid of it all though.

It took me a while to enter a few hundred trusted sites. The internet zone is set to high-security (or at least all activeX disabled) while the trustedsites zone is set to medium-security. Sites like this go in restricted sites zone (high-security) just to be safe. Internet Security settings are built into my unattended install.

Visiting Ms site was just painfull, 6 or more active X warnings ever page. had to turn some of it back on, imunise in spybot stops the spyware that exploits those holes anyway.

EDIT: do not do a system restore, it will just reinstall the program.

Spybot search and destroy will. If you have to, run it in safe mode.

already taken care of
Tip: create yourself a .hosts file and block as many banner advertsisements as possible. Many of them, such as some of the big ones on sites like cnn and gamspot etc, are basically iframes with activeX, Java and god knows what running in the page, Or block them using your router if you have one.
and toolbar cop got rid of the tool bar
