I have printed the "Remove Malware & Badware" topic which I found when searching this site for help...however, since our office is still on Windows 98 (hopefully getting new PCs with XP soon!!!), I wanted to be sure these instructions are relevant to us.

I've run Spybot several times, and followed all the "file removal" and registry cleanup steps I could find related to this secure32.html problem - but Internet Explorer still tries to open to this file even though the file is gone, and every time I set the properties to make the home page about:blank, it won't "take"... the PC is running extremely slow and seems to be hijacked by one or more malicious programs.

Any help or advice at this point (our new computers will be at least a week or two in arriving) would be extremely appreciated - we are getting desperate!! Thanks,

Hi Mic at Beninati...

Maybe a trip through the G2G Malware Forum would help. Just follow the steps listed on the page from the link, particularly those on the Start Here link at the top of the page. This can help you clear most of your problems by yourself. If you still have problems after that, post a HiJackThis log there for the specialists to work with. Do not reply to or "bump" your own topic. If the thread show's a reply it may be seen as one that is being worked on.
