I'm dealing with a spyware/viruslike issue on my bosses computer and it finally got to the point where I'm out of idea. I've run Norton Antivirus, Housecall, Adaware, Spybot, Ewido, Spyware Doctor, and HJT. All of these scans except Norton and Housecall found and deleted items. From what I'm seeing of the logs it looks like the pc has Aurora/Abetterinternet if not other things as well. I've looked around at steps for deleting this and none of them have worked. I think I've gotten most of the infection out but theres a pesky little mrsystem.dll file in win/system32 that is being persistant. Everytime I delete it with HJT or another utility it returns immediately. When I try to delete it manually it says it is in use. I can't seem to find the actual process that is running the application but it's definately still there. I've blocked most of the sites it uses with a hosts file now but the popups are still a big problem. I am out of ideas here and any help you guys can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! The Hijack This log is below.

You have the latest version of VX2. Download L2mfix from

http://www.atribune....oads/l2mfix.exe

Save the file to your desktop and double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts, then open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop. Double click l2mfix.bat and select option #1 for Run Find Log by typing 1 and then pressing enter. This will scan your computer and it may appear nothing is happening, then, after a minute or 2, notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it into this thread.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run option #2 OR any other files in the l2mfix folder until you are asked to do so!
