Hello all,

For the past 3 months I have been having a nightmare with malware. I believe I may actually have someone targeting me. I am a web developer so I have scripts that I have personally written myself. I am running sygate, spy sweeper, spy bot, defender and avg. I have done several reinstalls which keep me in the clear for about 3 days. Like always things get really slow. My keyboard goes in reverse order, icons keep popping up, windows updates total up to 73 every time I shut down, windows firewall goes down without warning and will not let me reopen it, mouse will go haywire, and files are randomly moved. How on earth is all of this happening??? I have been installing from the same disks now for 2 years and haven't had any problems until these past few months. My arsenal isn't catching anything until I run scans (which only work sometimes) and I continue to find rootkits, and this stupid msmp.exe file. Is it possible someone is targeting me? and how are they being so successful at it? I'd love to know how. I only surf web development sites and the only possible risky exception is myspace but even then I never open stuff from people I don't know. Does anyone have any suggestions. I'll post a log as soon as I find a way to download hijackthis because it won't download for some reason. Any help? PLEASE!!!

Are you installing SP2 before accessing the Internet? I would do the following.

Take a look at this page...


If you tab through the explanations, it may help you figure out why the problem keeps reoccurring. The msmp.exe thing is definitely an issue.
