Incident Status Location

Adware:adware/maxifiles Not disinfected C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\InetGet
Adware:adware/savenow Not disinfected Windows Registry

And as for the files on ur last post if u refer to ur post b4 that u told me to delete that file, which i did when i was in safe mode. The only reason i brought it up was because when ewido ran a popup came up saying if i wanted to delete the whole directory and i said no, but now the file is not there because i deleted it b4 like u said :tazz:

Great job, it appears your computer is clean :tazz:

Ensure you rehide your “hidden files and folders” back to the way they were.

Now that your system is Malware Free, it is important to reset your system Restore. Click Here to learn how to.

I recommend that you Defrag your computer before setting your Restore points:

Go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>Disk Defragmentor Make sure it set to the proper drive (default should be your main driver) and click on defragment

Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs, if you don't already have them, for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE
Spybot S&D
Microsoft Anti-Spyware

If you are unhappy with your current antivirus and want to replace it or if you dont already have one, I suggest one of these free programs:
*Note - do not use more than one anti-virus program as it will more than likely cause conflict.


The following free programs are great for prevention:

SpywareBlaster 3.4

A Firewall is a must! Here are 3 good free versions:
(do not have more than one firewall running on your system)


There are other options other than Internet Explorer for a browser, which some say have better security. Two of them are:


If you decide to keep Internet Explorer, This site is a great source for tightening up security on It's settings.

Make sure that you keep your Operating System and IE updated with the latest Critical Security Updates from Microsoft...they usually come out once a month, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Be sure and give the Temp folders a cleaning out now and then as well, Make sure after you clean your Temp files to empty out your Recycle bin as well.
For ease use the following program:

Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided. Also read So how did I get infected in the first place?

Thank you for all of ur help. It has been rele easy to do and rele fast :tazz:
If i had paypal i would hook u up -.-
As for the programs, as u can see i run microsoft antispyware and have AVG control center.. Is there a program that will stop worms like winfixer on impact or is this one that passes thru them. Most of the time my microsoft blocks them off the bat.
Also, as the firewall goes, I have WinXP SP2. dosent that include a firewall? and if not which one would be best.
And again thank you so much for all ur helpo
