My first inclination that I was infected was dealing with PSguard after using my standard tools (Spybot, webroot spysweeper, and Norton AV). While trying to get rid of that I saw coolwww and about blank and another one error nuker or something using spybot. After no luck I used smitrem tool to get rid of psguard. I believe it is all gone. I also used CSW shredder to try and get rid of coolwww. This is all before finding this forum. I have gone through the "You must read this before..." post and followed all steps as much as possible. I had a few issuses.

CWS shredder didn't find anything
Spybot did still find CoolWWW and error nuker
Ewido after about 15 secs would just close and go away while scanning and never finishes
I have tried the online scan with trend micro, it (I believed) tried to replace a file that I had a newer copy of and so I denied it. After that I kept getting IE errors

Here is the log and thanks for any help I can get. I usually can fix these sort of things myself or at least prevent them from happening. I was just caught off guard this time because I didn't have the ususal programs watching my system after I had some other errors not related to spyware.

Ewido still not finishing the scan. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the program and unchecked the to options during setup. I updated it and tried scaning in normal mode and safe mode( which moved a lot slower). After it gets about 2% through the scan it just closes. So there is no ewido log
Also I turned off system restore after reading other forums last week. Should I leave it off until I resolve this issue or turn it back on.

2. Boot into safemode to do this keep tapping F8 on your keyboard while your PC is starting up you will get a menu select safemode.

3. While in safemode open Hijackthis and click scan. Then tick and fix the following in Hijackthis with all windows closed except Hijackthis.

I already had aboutbuster 5.0 that I had downloaded before coming to the forums but hadn't used it. I assumed when you said to download aboutbuster, that I could use the one I had. After using it to scan, I thought maybe I had done something wrong because I got no notice whether to shut explorer down or to do a second pass. After rereading the instructions, confident that I followed them correctly, I downloaded the aboutbuster from the link you provided and then used that one( 4.0) to scan. I hope using 5.0 didn't mess anything up. Are they even from the same person???

It would seem that everything is fine and I hope that it is, however for real time protection what do you suggest I use:
Ad-watch SE pro
Tea timer form spybot
Ewido gaurd
Spysweeper shields

Your log is clean :tazz:

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • 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.
To protect yourself further:
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • 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.
I also suggest that you delete any files from "temp", "tmp" folders. In Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Delete Files" and select the box that says "Delete All Offline Content" and click on "OK" twice. Also, empty the recycle bin by right clicking on it and selecting "Empty Recycle Bin". These steps should be done on a regular basis.

Thanks for all the help and its good to know that my logs are clean. However, I scanned my computer with Ewido just to make sure everything was gone and I had 730!!! infected files. I deleted them from the quarintine section. Should I still have all that stuff on my comp????

I will definitely look into the programs that you suggested,but why are the programs that I listed not good enough for real time protection. Just curious...

Thanks again :tazz:

I really appreciate your help. Is there anyway to show gratitude???

Also, when I went to download IE/spyad it mentioned something about using the same list that spybot uses to immunize and block bad sites. My question is are they the same thing SDhelper in spybot and the IE/spyad block list
