I have had trouble removing these two, I don't know if they are connected in anyway, but after running AVG, Spybot, SpyHunter, Ad-Aware SE, Panda Active Scan and manually going to delete the registry key (below) they keep reappearing:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6D794CB4-C7CD-4c6f-BFDC-9877AFBD-C02C}

and

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellExecuteHooks\{6D794CB4-C7CD-4c6f-BFDC-9877AFBD-C02C}

and

VirtuMonde registry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{6D794CB4-C7CD-4c6f-BFDC-9877AFBD-C02C}

Nomatter how many times I go to remove these registry keys, they keep reappearing after I have closed the Registry Editor and my software listed above keep picking it up (and my System Restore is switched off).

Any help would be hugely appreciated! Thanks in advance!! :whistling:

Hello MizzLi...

Let's let the malware experts deal with this one.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions you'll find there.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Do Not reply to or "bump" your own topic...if it shows a reply, it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
