I have run ad Aware, Spybot S&D and Ewido before coming to your site. I also ran MS AntiSpyware and SpyDoctor in an attempt to get whatever it is off my system. I ran them while off-line, with my cable turned off. Even after cleaning and getting a supposedly clean bill of ehalth from the programs, I get Network Connection windows poppin open telling me that a program is trying to access "icannnews.com" and :licenseverify.com"

Something is on this mzachine and won't leave. I have theoretically cleaned Aurora, Nail, BookedSpace, AlwaysUpdateNews, MSW Seach, AdDestroyer, Transponder (Aurora, DrPMon and Boger) as well as Navidad Worm Worm off this system. Yet within minutes of getting online to come here, I was getting pop ups from Aurora and the ABI (AIB?) sources.

Help! please ..... (whimpering sounds inserted here)

Here's the HighjackThis log that I just created:

And the Ewido report after the last time I cleaned -- less than an hour ago, but I am sure the stuff is all back.

Please disregard this post at this point. I have managed to clean almost everything off the machine, with the exception of a file named Axdio3dl.dll in the system32 folder. This one refuses to leave, even using KillBox and Highjack this to try and forcibly remove it. It seems to like it there.

I will start a new thread about what is currently wrong.

Thank you
