Hello,

I have just completed updated scans with,

panda antivirus
ewido security suit
TDS-3
microsoft antispyware
ad-aware
spybot sd
cwshredder

And I also monitor my system with,

spywareblaster
spywareguard

All of these scans came up clear, appart from a couple of cookies which were deleted.
My system is running great, but I wanted to do that panda online activescan. It came back with 4 infections. 2 of which were in windows, so I could delete them, however the other 2 were in the registry. How can I delete these? Thanks for any help!

Scroll down to

Registry Search Tool
Search the Windows Registry for input string and display results (easier than repeatedly hitting the F3 key in RegEdit).

Script revised 13 Dec 2001 to work with Windows XP and Windows 2000.

And download this program :tazz:




Open the RegSearch folder and double click RegSearch.vbs. Allow it to run.

enter XPlugin

RegSearch will "disappear" but it is actually searching the registry for that entry.


Also enter Admess after Xplugin is done.

Copy and paste what it finds into a Notepad file.

Sammy,

I dont' see anything particular in there.


I think it would serve you well to clean your registry!
  • Please dowload: RegSeeker.
  • Click on "Clean The Registry" in the left panel.
  • Check all boxes (make sure the backup box in the lower left corner is selected!).
  • After it runs, click "Select All" on the bottom, then right-click on any selected item in the window and select "Delete Selected Items".
  • Click "Quit RegSeeker".
Now, open any of your installed programs, and make sure that everything opens ok. If so, reboot, then go back and run the RegSeeker again, do the same thing again if anything is found. When RegSeeker finds nothing else, then it's clean!

Outstanding ;)

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.

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.
