Ok, can you run a scan with HiJackThis and check the following object for removal:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [msbb.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\msbb.exe

Close ALL open windows except for HiJackThis and hit FIX CHECKED.

Next:

1) Please download the Killbox by Option^Explicit.

2) Save it to your desktop.

3) Run Killbox.exe.

4) Select "Delete on Reboot".

5) Copy the file names below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them then press CTRL + C

C:\WINDOWS\system32\msbb.exe

6) Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".

7) Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. If your computer does not restart automatically, please restart it manually.

Reboot.

Let me know how's the system running.. :tazz:

Everything seems to be back to normal. My Homepage, favorites, etc...

Thank-You so much for all of your help.

Do you have any ideas of a program that I can use to make sure this does not happen again?

I just want to make sure I am not visiting you any time soon.

Any further instruction is appreciated and once again, Thank-You for all of the help. I can head back to school next week and have no worries.

It's great to help!! :tazz:

Here's some tips for future to prevent spyware;

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed. (My favourite)
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program <= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kaspersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall <= A firewall is definatley a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneLabs.
  • More Secure Browser <= Internet Explorer is not the most secure and best browser. There are safer and better alternatives available. I recommend Firefox.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice;
So how did I get infected in the first place? (My favourite)
