My wife seems to have pick up a particiularly nasty trojan that keeps installing... I have used several products to try and remove these suckers when I ran across your site. I have used Ad-aware 6.0 and Spybot, Spyware Nuker & Trojan Hunter. They all find the programs, but cannot remove them... Below is the HiJackThis log:

Any assistance is GREATLY appreciated.

Hi Jesse and welcome,
If your still looking to resolve this issue,

You have the latest version of VX2. Download L2mfix from one of these two locations:


Save the file to your desktop and double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts, then open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop. Double click l2mfix.bat and select option #1 for Run Find Log by typing 1 and then pressing enter. This will scan your computer and it may appear nothing is happening, then, after a minute or 2, notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it into this thread.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run option #2 OR any other files in the l2mfix folder until you are asked to do so!

Sorry it took a bit to get back to you, board has been a bit busy
