Would really appreciate some help here, not very knowledgeable about this kind of thing.......
Initial problem was spystrike which kept popping up in a window, along with constant message in a yellow text box bottom right of the screen "you are infected blah blah....".
Also random shield icons with security related names appear on the desktop, along with suggestive womans face icon!
Have AVG and zonealarm running on my machine, Windows XP home, tried scanning/removing with AVG, Spybot and adaware but problem kept returning. Finally followed all your instructions on "how to remove Spyaxe etc.....", no visible problem as of now but Panda scan came up with items shown in the log below.....

Help me please IT saviours!

Cheers,
Mark.

Thanks for submitting the files and your PM :tazz:

Let's start cleaning.

Please read these instructions carefully. You may want to print them. Copy the text to a Notepad file and save it to your desktop! We will need the file later.
Be sure to follow ALL instructions!


***

You are running HijackThis from the Desktop.
Please create a new folder for it and move the program into the new folder.

***

Please download the latest version of noahdfear's smitRem.exe©. Save the file to your desktop. Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

***

Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.

The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.On the left hand side of the main screen click update
Click on Start
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
Once the updates are installed, close Ewido for now.

***

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, please download and install AdAware SE 1.06.
Check Here on how setup and use it - please make sure you update it first.

***

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site:
http://www.pchell.co.../safemode.shtml

***

Open HijackThis
Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:


O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.billingnow.com
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.reliablestats.com
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.winantispyware.com
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.winantivirus.com
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.winantiviruspro.com
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.winnanny.com

Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running.
Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

***

Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.
The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed.
Post me the contents of the smitfiles.txt log as you post back.

***

Use Windows Explorer to remove these folders:
C:\PROGRAM FILES\WinAntiVirus Pro 2006\
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Companion Wizard\
C:\Program Files\Common Files\WinAntiVirus Pro 2006\

* During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
* When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
* Save the report to your desktop

***

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.
