http://www.softpedia...r-Remover.shtml

and it seems to have erased everything, though i did have to remove
elitepmw32.exe and elitezke32.exe afterwards myself

here's my hijack log, let me know if you see anything still suspicious

Hi graeme,

Indeed, your log file does look clean ;)

Alot of times malware leaves behind some misc files,

please run this online virus scan: ActiveScan - Save the results from the scan!

Post the active scan log back in the thread please ;)


thanks,

:tazz:

You can delete this E:\Documents and Settings\etm\Favorites\Casino & Carrers folder.


Also you can delete that whole ETB folder, E:\WINDOWS\system32\ETB


After those two things, you look good ;)


Great job, it appears your computer is clean :tazz:

Ensure you rehide your “hidden files and folders” back to the way they were.

Now that your system is Malware Free, it is important to reset your system Restore. Click Here to learn how to.

Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE

Spybot S&D


If you are unhappy with your current antivirus and want to replace it or if you dont already have one, I suggest one of these free programs:
*Note - do not use more than one anti-virus program as it will more than likely cause conflict.

AVG
Avast


The following free programs are great for prevention:

SpywareBlaster 3.4

Spywareguard

IE/Spyad


A Firewall is a must! Here are 2 good free versions:

Sygate

ZoneLabs

There are other options other than Internet Explorer for a browser, which some say have better security. Two of them are:

Firefox

Opera

This site is a great source for tightening up security on Internet Explorer settings.

Make sure that you keep your Operating System and IE updated with the latest Critical Security Updates from Microsoft...they usually come out once a month, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Included in those updates is Windows XP Service Pack 2. Click Here
Since you're junkware free, the time to get it is NOW. Service Pack 2 is a MAJOR upgrade for XP. It adds numerous security and software patches, as well as new features and functionality. You will also be adding another layer of protection against future threats.

Be sure and give the Temp folders a cleaning out now and then as well, Make sure after you clean your Temp files to empty out your Recycle bin as well.
For ease use the following program:

Cleanup
Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided.
