Whoaaa there Goldfish, who ever said that you annoyed me? Those words were were never uttered by me or even inferred. You were being asked to perform difficult tasks, tasks which most people don't even come close to doing in order to clean up their system. I, personnally, am proud of the way you handled it all for a noobie :tazz:

As far as the report being negative, that is very good news indeed. It looks as if it is gone.

Your log looks good. If you have no more malware-related problems that you are aware of, just give me the OK and we can start the final but essential cleanup procedures.


Warmest Regards,

Trevuren

Hi Trevuren,

I have ran lots of programs to see if there is any other malware on my poor little PC and everything seems to be ok. :tazz:

I did find spyware in one temp internet file but I could delete it. So now all that is left to do is a clean up, yippee, nearly there now!

Warmest Regards,
Goldfish

Well done Goldfish. We beat a "rootkit" :tazz:

Congratulations, your log shows that your SYSTEM IS CLEAN

There are a few things you must do once you are completely clean:

1. Re-hide your System Files and Folders to prevent any future accidents.

Reconfigure Windows XP to hide hidden files:
  • Click Start. Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options. Select the View Tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading deselect "Show hidden files and folders".
  • Check the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" option.
  • Click Yes to confirm. Click OK.
2. Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files from the backup that Windows makes as no program is able to clean those files:

TO DISABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
  • Right-click "My Computer", and then left click "Properties".
  • Left click on "System Restore Tab"
  • Check box beside "Turn Off System Restore"
  • Left click on "Apply"
TO ENABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
  • Remove check mark from "Turn Off System Restore"
  • Click on "Apply"

3.Preventitive measures:

Please read and follow the following advice by TonyKlein on how to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future:
