Hi, after reading many posts on the forums, I have been stuck at this all day.
After downloading a few .rar files online today for a task I had been given, i was interrupted with the hotoffer.info MALWARE - IE pops up every 5 minutes, with the same hotoffer.info site but different content, next came the W32 or IGuard - blue background at first i resolved, now its black and i have many Display properties gone, and along the way somewhere I picked up a Trojan and perhaps the WWWCool.

After reading the reviews and resolutions within the limits of this forum, I cannot proceed any longer becuase I am out of resources. I don't know what to start with first or finish off first.

So far, I have been working with hotoffer.info all day.
Symptoms: [bleep], gambling, pharma etc.. desktop icons - refresh every 5 minutes even after deletion & there is an annoying red dot with white 'X' on taskbar.

I have tried using
Adware ES to scan and quarantine
SpyBot to Search Destroy and delete

Currently Using XP SP1, Zone Alarm Pro and Spy Bot Running in the background.
I have tried using, Hijackthis, restarting System in safe mode, Then using CleanUp3.12, then using Killbox to delete processes etc.. finally going back and forth thru the programs only finding that hotoffers.info just comes back.
Constantly scanning thru Spy Bot, as well as a thorough scan from Panda Online just before this post. Still I am stuck.

Finally used mwav.exe to find problems.. but it only detected trojans in Win32.dll.. I suspect this is Iguard. IGuard looks simple, mainly struggling with hotoffers.

Here is my hijackthis.log:

That would be a negative on the problem.

Thank you anyways dear GeeksToGo Staff Member.
Fortunatly, I solved the problem by doing a (system) Windows XP ROLLBACK.

This solved my problem, although I lost a days worth of data.
Thank you anyways. Your concern is appreciated.

Sincerely,
SoulBurner

OK, I'll close this topic.

To help keep you clean follow the recommendations in Tony's article here:

So how did I get infected in the first place?
