I have had this problem for several days now. This is what I have done.

I have read the directions around this - and this is what I have done.

1. Updated from norton 2003 antivirus to norton internet security 2004 ( check for updates daily )
2. Compete Scan of system ( done daily )
3. used cwshredder & hijack this to remove ( according to post I have read ) the offending items.
4. Deleted note.exe - ( I noticed that everytime this thing comes back this file is here ( in the windows directory ) - I think the orginal one has been renamed to note.exe.bak. Not sure it I can delete this as well or rename it back to the first.
5. This file keeps on coming back. I have kept a log of when it happes however, the time is inconsisent - or random. Any help to completely remove this pest would be great appreciated. This is the first time using a post bulletin board - thus I hope I have not broken any rules. If so, Please let me know

Shawn

I don't know if you are running Windows ME or another OS, but I posted what I did to kill SearchX Here. The actual fix came from BobO and ideaophorian. Good luck.

I keep having Searchx come back as well. I'm running Windows 2000 with all the Updates from Windowsupdate, have run AdAware full scan, SpyBot full scan, HiJack This and removed the sp.html entries, etc and nothing seems to help.

I have tried that fox you mentioned. I did not work- I couldn't find the *.dll you mentioned. I am running xp. More useful info everytime I delete note.exe it reappears back within seconds.
