Ive read up a bit, and got rid of sasser and coolwebsearch (i hope!) but I'm left with a couple of problems.

First is popup dialog boxes (not ie windows) warning me about spyware and telling me to go to spw3a.com or spw7a.com.

Second problem is a program is sendng a lot of information from my computer to pwned.tr1n1.net and its.phat.f0r.org. I know the addresses because when I disconnect from the internet Im told that a program is requesting information. Its really slowing down my connection, id be grateful if anyone could help me out!

Heres my hijackthis log:

Hi markd250,

From the log you have posted above it seems that you may have a memory-resident worm called WORM_SPYBOT.BR which spreads via network shares.

The filename for this worm is scrgrd.exe and is in your C:\Windows\System32 directory. Your logs show that you have Norton AntiVirus installed, so please update the virus definitions and run a full scan.

Even if Norton does not detect this, you should try disabling it from running at startup (feel free to ask for detailed instructions if you need them) to see if your problems persist or not. Mallicious spyware is only detected by a few anvi-virus vendors, so it is not necessarily going to be found by Norton.

If you have a problem with Norton AntiVirus for any reason, feel free to do a free online virus scan at Trend Micro HouseCall or Symantec Security Check

Hope this has helped a little. I'll be hanging around for a while so let me know if you need any further assistance.

Daniel S.

I forgot to comment on your dialog boxes popping up...

If they look like THIS then you should follow these instructions:
  • Go to Start > Run and enter "services.msc" in the box, and then press OK
  • Go down the list of system services to where you see "Messenger". Right click this item and choose "Stop".
  • Right click the item again and choose "Properties", and change the startup type to "Disabled".
  • Press OK and close the Services window.
That will disable the dialog boxes from popping up on your computer.

Hope this has been useful...

Daniel S.
