Hi Alderman_V

Please read through the instructions before you start (you may want to print this out).

Ok, I removed it using hjt, the check boxes. However, the symantec file won't go away. I have everything but the basics stopped through msconfig, I tried stopping it in Task Manager but "acess is denied", I tried deleting it directly from the folder that its in (Program Files/Common/Symantec Shared) but acess is denied there as well.

I followed your instructions. Trojan Hunter didn't find anything wrong - complete scan.
Panda still sees:
Adware/Apropos
hmmm...

Well, after I found out that Trend Micro had a new beta scan available, I went and gave it a try. It found and removed Apropos as well as another adware that I didn't know was there.

Thanks to everyone who gave me help and advice. I don't think this pc has been this clean since it was new. LOL

This thread can be marked "Resolved".

Hi Alderman_V

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN ;)

Download the Microsoft Antispyware

SpyBot Search & Destroy v1.3

Winpatrol

Turn of system restore
Disabling or enabling Windows XP System Restore

Defrag your hard drive. Turn system restore back on and create a new restore point.

Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use). Click Here
QUOTE
Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox user posted image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. ;) 8)
