Hi,

I followed instructions for someone else topic on how to remove this spyware but it just keeps on coming back... :tazz:

I have run spybot, adaware, cleanup, TDS-3. Adaware found 300 critical programs, but even after a few reboot scans it still could not delete everything.

Also after all this, websearch tools was still present. I removed it using the remove programs feature on the control panel. Though I have done this multiple times before and it always comes back.

My virus checker (up to date) also finds a virus file everytime i turn on my laptop. (C:\xz.exe W32/Sdbot.worm.gen.h)

Other Mcafee virus checker alerts

C:\Documents and Settings\spnecht\Local Settings\Temp\fWWY1vQ.exe
Adware-RBlast.dldr

C:\Documents and Settings\spnecht\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

\10O3PLCH\istdownload[1].exe
Adware-RBlast.dldr

C:\temp\NCasePackage.exe
Adware-180Solutions

C:\temp\optimize.exe
Adware-DFC

C:\temp\sahagent-cdt1004.exe
Adware-SAHAgent.dll

C:\xz.exe
W32/Sdbot.worm.gen.h

It used to pick up the 'optimize' program 3 times one after the other around lunchtime every day, but this doesn't seem to happen anymore.

Thanks in advance.

Chris. ;)
