I have tried several ways to clean a Trojan.StartPage variant from a Windows 2000 machine. Symantec Corp Edition AV detects the virus, quarantines the file(s), but the effect persists. Next time I-Explorer starts, I get the AV warning (file quarantined, and an error message that "se.dll" cannot be found, but the home page has been hijacked, and several fake warnings about security pop up over a search screen.
Following the instructions from Symantec Symantec Trojan.StartPage.M I tried running in safe mode while fixing the registry, and found that after I saved the registry, then reopened it, the changes had been undone. I suspect a process that is running is recontaminating the registry. Can anyone suggest a way to identify and kill the offending process, and complete the fix of the registry? Thanks.
