In regedit I still found [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AntivirusGold]
I did nopt dare to delete anything myself inside regedit, but I followed these instructions:
Copy the part in bold below into notepad and save it as AVGoldfix.reg
Set Filetype to All Files and save it somewhere easy to find. We will use it later.
(make sure that REGEDIT4 is the first line of the file)

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\Components\1]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"Intel system tool"=-

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AntivirusGold]


later it said:

Doubleclick the AVGoldfix.reg we made earlier.
And (still in safe mode) use the DiskCleanup Tool to empty all your Temp folders.

from this thread:
http://www.geekstogo...l=AVGoldfix.reg

this did remove the AntivirusGold entry in the local machines, and this also removed an entry [_HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\InternetExplorer\Desktop\Components\1} which prior existed, now there only a Component 0 remains.

following the entry which still exists in [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

Name Type
ab (Default) REG_SZ ( value not set )
ab CTFMON.EXE REG_SZ C:\WINDOWS\system\ctfmon.exe
ab MSMSGS REG_SZ C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs"/background
ab Norton System Works REG_SZ C:\ProgramFiles\Norton SystemWorks\cfgwiz.exe"G…
ab PowerBar REG_SZ …

I post it as I wonder what is that PowerBar?
Something I rather should delete?

and as a remender, as I have posted so much already:
there still is that one file of Azesearch in my M drive which Killbox on reboot did not delete

Hi kuuan

Your M:\Drive was not listed in any of the HijackThis los you posted I would check all you usb drive for any infection.

You can remove the Powerbar but I do not know what progam that may be.

Hi again,
apparently everythin is normal now.
I run adaware, spybot, Ewido and Panda and nothing was found.
I had deleted that one file in the M drive and all the scan had been made with all my HDs connected.
I hope that we are about done, thank you very much for all your help.
One more question I'd have: From that log, can you see which programs open on startup? I'd like to enable only the essential to open at startup, e.g. I do not use MSN messenger and want it to disable to load at startup or get rid of it altogether.

Here one more HijackThis log:

Hi kuuan

Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use). Click Here
QUOTE
Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox.
http://www.mozilla.o...oducts/firefox/
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .
You can download Sun's newer JVM for Windows at http://java.sun.com/getjava/index.html.
http://www.java.com/...load/manual.jsp Windows (Offline Installation)

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats.

Have a nice Day.

thatman, thank you very much indeed, and I wish you a very good day as well.
This certainly has been a big learning experience!
I try to follow the advice. The downloaded Winpatrol would not install however, it seems to be for Windows NT only. Spywareblaster is just on it's way.
