Just a thought about a way to reduce the load on the dedicated people who run this shop - Is there a list anywhere of common things to look for in a Hijack-This log? I had an infestation of aBetterInternet a while back, and I saved the annotated HJT log with my problems. This was helpful in cleaning up a second machine, but now I've found some new entries. I've got the signatures of things like PurityScan and what to do about it, so now I can handle a few of these myself, but how about all the others?

Another thing that would be good to have is a similar list of things that we don't want to touch - like the internal Windows and IE stuff. To me, anything that starts with "win" or "sys" should be left alone, but I suppose that is precisely why the Spyware Axis of Evil uses names like this for its files.

Why not join the Boot Camp, and learn as much as you want about how to fix these problems? See http://www.spywarein...owtopic=34&st=0, for how to sign up.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!
