Please, someone, help me. I have tried everything. I keep getting asked if I want SurfSideKick 3 to start,
then I get asked if I want msxpto also be a startup program. I have many things, WinPatrol is one of them and that is what keeps asking me what to do. I keep saying no, but they won't leave me alone. I have tried deleting the SurfSideKick 3 file myself to no avail, I have used Spybot and AdAware several times to no avail. Finally I got a clean report from both Spybot S&D and AdAware, only to have SurfSideKick try again. It's in my Program Files folder and it won't let me delete it. It says it is being used by some program, but I can't figure out which one. I am including my HijackThis log. Please, it's driving me nuts.

I'm pretty familiar with everying in the log except for those that I highlighted. I've tried safe mode also. Nothing is working.

Thanks...I felt really dumb but I finally figured that one out. However, I have a bigger problem. I think I'm just going to have to do a total reformat. I keep getting this folder appearing on my desktop called SearchB, publisher is Enhance. Also, something called msxp, also published by Enhance. This Enhance thing seems to be a real problem. I've used Spypot, Spysweeper, AdAware, and a few other things and they all say the same thing. After a reboot it will completely remove them. Well, now I can actually delete the files, but as soon as I reboot, there they are again. I've been at this for hours, I'm going to bed, but if you have any advice, I appreciate it. It seems that everything that is a problem is published by Enhance. I've done safe mode, I've done AVG scans. I just have all this stuff that I have to back up, and I mean gigs of stuff to back up, so I'm not looking forward to a reformat, it absolutely will not let me do a system restore. I'll post my HJT log, nonetheless.

What's plaguing me isn't showing up in this log. They are all .exe files published by Enhance, and I keep getting the same virus alert from AVG, it's in my Windows folder.

It's C:\Windows\SYS98.exe

It's 2:30 in the morning and I'm finally going to bed.

Honestly, I really appreciate the help, but I'm just loaded up with too much crap. I run Ad-Aware on almost a daily basis, and certainly have been since Tuesday, when all this started. I run Spybot S&D, I run my AVG daily, and I'm doing this in safe mode also. Now it seems that the malware "enbrowser" has taken hold of my computer. I delete and delete and delete SearchB.exe, some other exe file ms063001-32336.exe, another msxp.exe, and everytime I restart, they are back. It's just to the point where it's actually easier to reformat. I'm not losing anything, I've got everything backed up, and to be honest, I have nothing to do today, it's cold and snowy in Chicago, so what the heck. But really, I really appreciate the help.

While I'm at it, though, do you know anything about Webroot SpySweeper? I'm using a 2 week free trial version, and it seems to catch stuff that Spybot misses. I'm just curious as to whether it's worth purchasing or is it just another scare tactic.

Please send me a fresh HJT log for review so we may continue our work. SpySweeper is an EXCELLENT program.

Thanks...but I have already reformatted. I just get fed up. There's nothing on my computer that can't be backed up easily, it's used purely for entertainment purposes. However, I do appreciate your comment about Spy Sweeper.
