I too have been attacked with the ugly Mirar. I downloaded SUPERantispyware and it went through its scan. Now I am stuck on Quarantining & removing harmful items. It is stuck on software/microsoft/internet explorer/toolbar for hours now. It will not let me interrupt. I must say there was an incredible amount of junk on my computer. Is this normal? Should I reboot? Any help would be appreciated.

In my experience, hours would be extremely unusual.

If it won't let you interrupt, if were you, I would reboot and try again.

Can anyone provide any information on how to use HijackThis!? I can run the program but I'll be darned if I can figure out which of the hundredes of entres should be removed and which wones are required filees or entries and, if removed, will cause my computer to freeze up and require reformatting.

Thanks for any info in this regard.

Just fyi, it was MalwareBytes Anti-Malware that got rid of Mirar for me. Super Anti-Spyware did not for some reason (though it did for others).

Here is some information about this software from McAfee: http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_124245.htm . Hope that helps somebody, as it also shows the website of the creators of this nightmare program.
