Great job Patricio !!!

Ad-aware is finding a file in system restore,
Please follow the instructions Disable/Enable system restore

That will flush system restore and get rid of the last of the worm,

Soon as you have done that please get over to Windows updates and get the latest Security Patches. If not this will leave you wide open to reinfection again

How is it running ?
Please use the following suggestion to help prevent reinfection

Download the following program, For keeping crap off your system to begin with
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.
Download Spyware Blaster

Keep AD-Aware. and Spybot 1.3 handy, Check them for updates prior to running and run them weekly
Same with your Anti Virus,

For an added check run an online virus scan, you can use one of the 2 below,
TrendMicro's HouseCall
ActiveScan

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

Or use CCleaner I had you install earlier

Remeber to Check Windows for updates

Probably a good time to create a new restore point See Here Name it clean or something like that,

Hi. A few days ago I downloaded tha Shareaza, and then I have a lot of troubles with virus and worms. I fixed a 90% of the problem, but a worm called Win32.P2P-Worm.Alcan.a is resident in my sistem. This is the log file:

WIN32.P2P-WORM.ALCAN.A
»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»
obj[0]=File : C:\WINDOWS\system32\bszip.dll
obj[1]=File : C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.com
obj[2]=File : C:\WINDOWS\System32\netstat.com
obj[3]=File : C:\WINDOWS\System32\ping.com
obj[4]=File : C:\WINDOWS\System32\regedit.com
obj[5]=File : C:\WINDOWS\System32\taskkill.com
obj[6]=File : C:\WINDOWS\System32\tasklist.com
obj[7]=File : C:\WINDOWS\System32\tracert.com

I ran the Ad-aware every day but the program can´t fix the trouble. Can you give me the solution?.

Thanks for all help.
Patricio.

Have you thought about changing Downloading software to Lime Wire or changing to Win MX?

These have no spywar or anything nasty like that, and I have been using this for a long time.

Only bad this is that other people tricking you into something that is not real, e.g: when you want a game and you go and download it, install it and then you find that there is spyware on your computer etc. (But i have learned not to download anything but music and videos. But not all the time this happens)
