2 internet shortcuts have popped up on my desktop. they cannot be deleted - they reappear after i've restarted windows. the thing is, i've already run spybot, ad-aware and spyware blaster but not one of these programs can detect the spyware, IF it is spyware. the 2 shortcuts are named 'Fast Loans' (leads to: this page) and 'Online Pharmacy' (leads to: this page) any help would be much appreciated.

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Your computer has a number of spyware programs that we need to remove, including Cool Web Search, and a virus. For more info on spyware see the Spyware Tools link in my signature.

C:\WINDOWS\System32\rundl.exe is the W32.Tofazzol Virus. Update your antivrrus software and run a full system scan, or try the free online scan here

Let's start with a couple of free programs:
CWShredder is the first to run. Here's why: If a CoolWebSearch variant is indeed running on your system, it may actually prevent you from running spyware scans. It is smart enough to detect efforts to detect it, and stop them. Download CWShredder to your desktop or other location. Close all browser windows, double click the CWShredder icon to run, then click the Fix -> button. When finished, reboot and run Spybot Search & Destroy.

Spybot Search & Destroy Download and install. Start Spybot S&D using the "Spybot-S&D (easy mode)" link from your Start menu . Click the Search for updates button, if any are found then click the Download Updates button. After all updates are downloaded, click the Check for problems button. When the scan is complete, place a check next to anything marked in red, then click the Fix selected problems button. You may need to run Spybot S&D multiple times to remove all infections.

When finished, Reboot your computer. Finally, reply to this post with a new HiJackThis log so we can look for any nasties that may have been missed. <_<

i think everything's ok now, but i was wondering if the 'fix checked' button means that it removes the checked items or simply fixes it because i noticed that you asked me to remove some gamespot components. also, i've done a full system scan with AVG and it picked up 6 viruses, 1 of which couldn't be removed/fixed. is there any way to get rid of this stubborn 1? and, thank you so much for all the help. i was going crazy trying to figure this out.

Can you give more info on the virus that couldn't be removed? Note: Please start a new topic in the virus forum.

The gamespot entry that was removed (O16) is a file that's downloaded when you visit a site. It's a suspicious entry so it was removed. If it's required you'll just be prompted to download the next time you visit gamespot.

Your log is clear. To avoid these "nasties" in the future, I strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster and IE/Spyad.

Both are free programs. SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed and consumes no system resources.

IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will several impair attempts to infect your system.

More info and download is available at:
