The aforementioned virus/malware/problem will not disappear. MBAM picks it up everytime, two copies of it to be precise. The information it lists is as follows:
Hijack.WindowsUpdate / Registry Data / HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\BITS\ImagePath (Data: %fystemRoot%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs) / Ref #40656
Hijack.WindowsUpdate / Registry Data / HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv\ImagePath (Data: %fystemRoot%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs) / Ref #97196
I've tried SmitFraudFix in safe mode, MBAM in safe mode, I regularly run Ad-Aware, filehippo.com, SpywareGuard, Spyware Blaster...and err, that's about it! I work for a relatively large company and the HQ IT guys can't seem to get rid of it either!
Thanks guys, any help would be tip top; if I can give any more info do let me know.
Oh, running XP, laptop is a Bony Vaio VGN-SZ71WN.
