SecondThought Removal Instructions

First, end the 'stcloader.exe' process from the Task Manager (ctrl-alt-delete). Also remove these files (if present) with Windows Explorer: stcloader.exe, Adware.SecondThought, BKDR_RULEDOR.E, Second Thought, SecondThought, Trojan.Win32.SecondThought, Trojan.Win32.SecondThought.a, Trojan.Win32.SecondThought.c, Win32/SecondThought.G.

Open the registry (Start->Run->regedit) and delete the following keys and values:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion
un\adstartup
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion
un\bokja
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion
un\sqinstaller
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion
un\stcloader

Now, before you delete it, the DLL file must be deregistered. Open a DOS command prompt window (from Start->Programs->Accessories). Enter the following commands in the DOS window: cd "%WinDir%\System" regsvr32 /u

2ndsrch.dll
a_clearsearch.dll
cdsm32.dll
csaolinst.dll
csbiinst.dll
csie.dll
csieinst.dll
idleui.dll
spextdll.dll
swrt01.dll
swin32.dll
voiceip.dll

Each file is in several locations so you'll need to search for them and unregister + delete them in every location you find. Tip: this is only a list of known files/locations. You will want to do a search by the name of the file to see if they're on your system.

Having successfully done this you should be able to delete the entire 'Second Thought' folder in Program Files.
