Hi there

I've got all the usual anti-spyware programs loaded, up-to-date and regularly used but I cannot get rid of WindUpdates which is back every single day after being removed by a spyware prog (either MS Anti-Spyware or Spybot S&D).

It must be re-installing but I'm not techie enough to see how.

Here's my HiJackThis log. What do I do next? (Do let me know if there are any other nasties I haven't noticed won't you?)

Many thanks!

Matt :tazz:

matt,

I think you have gotten caught in the Spybot/AntiSpy wars. You need to turn off Spybot. Then run a full SCAN (all three options checked under Scan Options) with Antispy in Safe Mode.

I've seen this several times before. Spybot want to maintain the staus quo and doesn't understand that AntiSpy is trying to help. It htinks it is doing harm so it tries to restore the stuff removed by AntiSpy.

If you have a fast link just uninstall Spybot with the Control Panel Add/Remove Software. Then reinstall later. Or you can just use HijackThis to remove it and then restore it later.
