Softwrap Adtracker and Grokloader?

Q: Softwrap Adtracker and Grokloader?

I use Video Studio 10 which seems to install the registry key below which Spybot identifies as Grokloader.
Spybot will remove the key but it reappears whenever Video Studio is run.
Is this really malware and, if so, how can it be removed?

By reading all the posts on this subject, it is obviously not a new topic, but I'm a new member.
I have Win 7 pro 64 bit
I ran the addition and frst logs for another malware removal site but then made someone mad by asking how long it would take to get help so they dropped my thread lower or completely off. Lesson learned.
Can you please help me remove this malware?
Thank you.

Hello, I did a scan with Spbot and an entry was found, called GrokLoader...
The SpyBot log from the scan:

GrokLoader: [SBI $A8A047C2] Settings (Registry key, nothing done)

The rest were cookies, which I removed. I also removed GrokLoader via SpyBot, then removed "Adtracker________" at "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Softwrap\". in regedit.exe (found on

I can't be sure though, that I have really got rid of GrokLoader - after all, these are sneaky things! (It was not detected by Super AntiSpyware or AVG free)... Here's my HJT log after the above was done:

Hello and welcome to TSF

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Restart your computer and boot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work. Make sure to close any open browsers. Go into HijackThis->Config->Misc. Tools->Open process manager. Selec... Read more

My 16 year old daughter downloaded blubster and afterwards, we began to get pop ups all the time. So, I uninstalled it and now when we start up the computer, we get a softwrap file error 1 message everytime. I read other posts about this, and all I learned was to uninstall blubster, which I have already done. Can anyone tell me what to do to remove this error message?

A:softwrap file error 1

Is this when you log on?

Try checking your startup items to see if blubster is there?
To do this

- Click Start->Run
- Type "msconfig.exe" and press enter
- In Msconfig click the startup tab
- Look for some program related to blubster
