I have some strange spyware on my computer, and I've scanned it with ad-aware, ewido, trend micro housecall, and Microsofts Anti-Spyware tool. I tried using Hijack This and the logs reveal nothing suspicious, but there's clearly something awry.

Hello, mikeytwice.

You have the latest version of VX2. Download L2mfix from one of these two locations:

http://www.atribune....oads/l2mfix.exe
http://www.downloads....org/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!

if you receive, while running option #1, an error similar like: ''C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe
C:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt the system file is not suitable for running ms-dos and microsoft windows applications. choose close to terminate the application.."...then please use option 5 or the web page link in the l2mfix folder to solve this error condition. do not run the fix portion without fixing this first.

Followup: This software wasn't working correctly - it wouldn't start automatically after boot, and when I attempted to start manually, it asked me to reboot again. I eventually stumbled across Webroot Spy Sweeper, which firstly blocked all the popups that were coming from www.a-d-w-a-r-e.com and www.ad-w-a-r-e.com, and then seemingly got rid of the problem all together (or so it appears) during a sweep. The only highly malicious spyware it found was "icannnews" - so I suppose this was what was causing my problems?

Hello, mikeytwice.

SpySweeper does remove the newest strain of L2M, which is what you had.

We like to reserve it for cases we have tried everything else for though, since you can't use it again after the 2 week trial.


May I see a new Hijackthis log to make sure it's clean? :tazz:
