I was infected with a virus(es) recently which Symantec seems to have caught, yet I get a periodic popup about the same virus (sysupd.dll) every day. It says it's quarenteened, by not removed. Then there is the isearch problem. I have run HiJack This, Microsoft Anti-Spy Beta, Ad-Aware, Spybot all of which say they have removed lots of files, only to have them reappear. When I'm connect to the internet, the toolbar redirects my IE and when I try to remove it directly, all of the associated apps & DLL's reappear. I was able to wipe and reinstall run32dll.exe, which solved some problems, but nothing else seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.

Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

I tried the update, but it gets about 2 mins in and gives an "Invalid Product Key" error. This is a legit XP Pro installation, and I have done earlier updates...now what?

This is a difficult infection to clean up. Once we get it cleaned up, you will be infected right away since you don't have windows updated.

Read this:

I would try all the recommended steps suggested here and see if that will work.

here?

Can anyone get me started again? Before I can proceed, I need to expand Rundll32.ex_ because Properties on "My Computer" is not working but I don't know the format.

Help!
