Think-Adz is related to the Zeno parasite. Think-Adz installs itself secretly on your computer, in many cases through browser exploits and other unsavory methods. Once installed, Think-Adz will unleash a barrage of popup adverts on your computer. Think-Adz will connect to the Internet, download, and then install other malware. Think-Adz also transmits data from your computer to a server, including terms that you have searched for and your web browsing history. Think-Adz employs many techniques to prevent removal, and can be extremely difficult to manually eradicate.

    Spyhunter 2.9 detected, removed it, but it keeps coming back -- I would run the spyhunter, delete the parasites, reboot the machine and run spyhunter again, Spyhunter would find this "think-adz", trojan vundo and trojan downloader agent -afg. Spyhunter found it, eradicated it but it always comes back. Any ideas? Jim

    jim, The most dangerous parasite from your list is trojan vundo and it seems, that it adds ThinkAdz. If you purchased the SpyHunter generate the support log and send it to our support. They will solve your problem as soon as possible.

    I have this think-adz thing, and i've tried searching for it but i can't find it. I know it's there because whenever I so much as run a program it loads this think-adz page. Any help?
