Evening,

I have the "Warning you're in danger" problem that has changed my desktop
I've tried the latest Spybot, McAfee and Adaware, but nothing helps

I also tried editing my own log based on the page you guys have very kindly
put together on this site, and also through help2go detective....

I use firefox and IE 6.0.2.6 for browsing - mainly firefox but used IE for 1 hour
and got this problem.

Im running XP with aSP1 installed

I would really appreciate if someone could tell me how to get rid of this thing



thanks a lot

I remember reading I can only do that once I've gotten rid of this malware-
apparently it can really make a mess of your system if you upgrade it whilst
it is infected with this garbage....

I may be totally off the track, but am a bit concerned to try it.
would much rather clear the problem first if that's possible

thanks again

Hi Dariush

*** Need Windows Update ***
We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.
Click here: http://www.microsoft...p1/default.mspx
Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

thanks for the advice - I've installed the new service pack 1a you recommended, and posted a new log as a new posting
if you get a chance, I would be extremely grateful if you could have a look at it, and give me a few pointers

thanks again,

David
