My Grandson got into a system from exact.com, called bargain buddy.com.
It loaded the following, Bullseye.com, Navisearch, cashback.com shop at home.com, casino places, and free [bleep].
I un-installed these, with no problem then 5 minutes later they are back.
I ran Adware 6SE, Noadware, PCtools Spyware Doctor, and Spybot. Each would find these and delete them but as fast a they were deleted they came back. I researched all sights I could find, cleaned the registry with regedit, and 3b registry pro. they came back.
Spy ware doctoer would find over 545 errors related to the above plus one memory resident that it would clean on boot up, clean errors and clean on reboot, worked but as soon as the reboot scan started and memory resident one was deleted they had all reinstalled themselves, plus put the memory one back, a loop was ceated. had to shut it down. Still no way to get rid of it. tried to repair xp and couldnot, tried to rewrite over top no avail could not load my xp home was newer than the original, uninstallled all service pack updates and still was newer than owned cd had. finally it crashed whole system, then while checking the main network system it crashed hard. Had to redo both systems.
The problem is finding the refresh load file that continuously reloads the package as fast as it is uninstalled. No spyware finds this load file and deletes it. They all find all or parts of the loaded files and deletes them.
What I need is a file finder that can seek out these loader files and get rid of them. ANY IDEAS.

work though the malware guide at the top of this forum where it says "Do you suspect a malware (Spyware, Virus, Trojan) infection? Please start here. " If you still have trouble after that, post a hijack this log in the malware forum.
