Hi, I got infected by Wintools and it won't go away.

I've used

-Spybot 1.3

I have followed the directions 5 times by going to safe mode, deleting the entries, the files, having the above software do it also. rebooted,did it again etc..

When i boot normally again, it will appear not to be there, like for 15 min. Then it will all of a sudden appear. At first, i will run all the programs, watch my Running procces's, the directory, the REG entries..
Then after a 15 min, bang its back..and it starts...
spybot 1.3 Tea thing is trying to stop it from changing the reg, but it doesn't..

Please help, I'm on the verge of formatting my HD.

I'm win2000, and i have done all the updates to IE6 and win2k.
I have also ran these programs to check everything, urls, u name it..

The 1st web page wintools will launch is usually allsports (some sports site).

Please help !

Hi Reef

Post a HijackThis log and we'll see if we can sort out whats going on.

Download HijackThis v1.98 here: HiJackThis
Unzip to a convenient permanent folder
For example: C:/HiJackThis/HiJackThis.exe
Double click HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".
Then post the fresh log in this topic...
