I just got through 3 days of consultation with one of your experts -- he was great, and indeed removed the malware from my computer. He also made recommendations, among them 1) change to Firefox from IE7; 2) install SuperAntiSpyware; 3) Install SpywareGuard...all of which I did. On the computer that was infected with the Trojan Mezzia, all is clear. However, I thought it would be smart to install these protections on my other machines as well, which I did. Ever since then, upon bootup, I get a message on one that says: DR WATSON POSTMORTEM DEBUGGER HAS ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM AND NEEDS TO CLOSE. I close that message and it remains on the screen, until I delete the process with Task Manager. On the other machine, I get the message...sometimes two of them...that says VISUAL STUDIO JUST-IN-TIME DEBUGGER...An unhandled win32 exception occurred in explorer.exe (2628), or the same message specifying TPHKMGR.exe (3836).
Both messages come up on their respective machines with each boot.
The programs I installed were SuperAntiSpyware Pro, SpywareGuard, and Firefox.
I don't even know a Dr. Watson program or process, nor did I do anything with Visual Studio, which is resident on the machine...so I'm lost and assume its once again some Malware thing.
Incidentally, I tried to remove SpywareGuard but it tells me that its running so I should exit its instances by clicking on the tray icon...but there's no icon in the tray. Also, it doesn't appear in my Applications in task manager as "running", and I can't find its process either. (This is true on both machines). Something is wierd!
Please help...I'm going crazy with all these strange pheonmena.
