Look2Me adware operates in stealth and displays an excessive amount of pop-up advertisements. Most common are IE pop-up windows, but some pop-ups are tailored by shape and animation. Some of the advertisements push the user to install ErrorGuard or WinFixer
Look2Me hooks into the winlogon process as a notification package. If the user tries to unregister the notification package, it is immediately reinstated. Look2Me also removes the administrator group’s debug privileges and thereby disables the user from interfering. This, along with some other tricks, makes manual removal close to impossible.
For automatic removing of Look2Me adware, use F-Look2Me.
- Download f-look2me.zip from here.

Note: F-Look2Me loads itself as a service to gain system privileges. The service renames infected files and patches the adware in memory. It also restores Debug Privileges for group Administrators. F-Look2Me requires administrator rights to run.
