I have three network connected systems, and have been mostly able to stem the tide using Spybot and Adaware. One system, however, has developed a recurrent problem and seems to get infected immediately and severely with all manner of junk. I've read the FAQ and run AdAware and SpyBot.

The system in question is running XP/IE with all updates, Norton Antivirus and ZoneAlarm with only a few authorized programs.

Right now Spybot (1.3) reports C2.lop plus 11 other problems (the usual casinos and sex lists) but can't remove any; running Spybot at bootup reports that it has C2.lop (with 4 components) but can't remove it then either. I don't see anything in the process list that looks suspicious.

How do I clean the stuff SpyBot can't get to, what is exposing me to the constant recurrence of these problems and how can I close the door? I see a few things in this log that make me suspicious, but only know enough to be dangerous, so I'll solicit your expert advice.

Here is my log. I will be glad to supply any additional info needed. Thanks in advance, you guys perform a great service to the community.

Added: Perhaps another clue: since doing the scans above I get a popup telling me that "Spybot Has Blocked the Download of DoubleClick" when accessing certain websites (notably Yahoo mail).

Another clue, possibly: when navigating to certain sites (notably weather.com) I also get a message that SpyBot has blocked download of Avenue A. So it looks like my browser is trying to download stuff that Spybot is now blocking.
