Recently, my Internet Explorer has been hijacked, to try and solve this I have used spybot and spysweep, but a trojan called spooner-A keeps coming back. On this site I discovered that the only way to get rid of it would be via hijackthis. So here I am!

It would be very nice if someone could help me get rid of that annoying bug.
I hope my hijackthis log is not too undecipherable :tazz:

Nice job your log is clean ! Please use the following suggestion to help prevent reinfection

Download the following program, For keeping crap off your system to begin with
Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests. Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox. Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Download Spyware Blaster

Keep Ad-aware and Spybot handy, Check them for updates prior to running and run them weekly
Same with your Anti Virus,

For an added check run an online virus scan, you can use one of the 2 below,
TrendMicro's HouseCall
ActiveScan

Be sure and give the Temp folders a cleaning out now and then as well, Make sure after you clean your Temp files to empty out your Recycle bin as well.
For ease use the Cleanup program I had you download earlier


Remeber to Check Windows for updates

Your very welcome, Glad we could help :tazz:
