Hi all... never posted here before, but last night my computer went insane from spyware and adware infections after several months of running cleanly, and I'm running out of ideas. I've removed entries using TrendMicro Housecall, Spybot, Hijack This, and manual registry editing, and they did clear up a few things, but certain entries keep coming back every time I reboot - especially E2Give, Aircity, and the Elite Toolbar.

Here's my latest HJT log...

Sorry for the delay... life went insane for a few days there. x_x

Anyway, things are better, but I still get occasional popups and see programs running in task manager that shouldn't be there. The two Aircity appearances seem to be gone, but in their place I now see 2 occurrences of something called Intfat32.

Here's my new log, taken fresh on the heels of a reboot and before closing unneseccary programs in task manager (i.e. Intfat32). I see the Elite toolbar is still listed... that and E2Give still refuse to disappear from my Add/Remove Programs list... gah.
