Hello,

I have been reading your fixes in removing spyware, nail.exe. I must say that you folks are doing a great service. Anyway, it seems that it is an involved process. Apparently, there is no quick fix to this. Is there?

Welcome to GTG.

It really depends. Some of the infections are easier to remove, others are more difficult. Do you want to do this?

If you do, follow the instructions in the below link in my signature and run all those programs. Do NOT post the HijackThis log yet. Do this first:

Download ewido security suite from here http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

Update it’s database from here.. http://www.ewido.net...wnload/updates/
Run a scan and let it clean the PC. Post a new hijackthis log when complete.

greyKnight17,

Thanks for your reply. Impatient as I am I googled 'Aurora Uninstaller" and found a solution. I downloaded a uninstaller from removed - Metallica and ran it, following their instructions, and that seems to work.

I also ran HiJack and Nail.exe seems to have been nailed(excuse the pun but I can't help it). I am pasting the link just in case it interests you.

Thanks to CalRodeo for sharing that find and to you for your offer.

We would like you to know that the staff of GeeksToGo does not recommend this procedure. - Metallica
