I had a pretty annoying NewDotNet, My Fun Web Products, Relevant Knowledge and a few other infections.
I kiled most of them by using Super Anti Spyware, AVGantispywareandTrendMicro. Followed by Super Anti Spyware again. Then I was lead to believe they were gone. Because the first time I ran Spybot (and the ony other time Ive ran spybot other than last night) nothing was found.

Last night I figured Id better do some scans because it had been a while. And something hasn't been too right with my computer lately
Ran Avast- And I had no viruses :thumbsup:
Ran Super Anti Spyware- No Spyware o.O
Ran Spybot- Found Spyware/Malware that I thought was long gone :trumpet:

Spybot found 1 entry of NewDotNet, 2 of My Fun Web Porducts, 2 Of Relevant Knowledge,1DisableSecurityCenter,2AdwarethatIhaveneverheardofand36100% Anti-Spywareinfections..
Im pretty sure Im out of the woods with the othersbutitcouldn'tremoveallofthe100%Anti-Spywareinfection.
Im doing another scan today to see what I can remove.

Im quiet worried. I may be over reacting but I do take care of my system reasonably well so I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions on what else I can do to make sure Im clean?

Thanks in advance :flowers:

Have you run all the scans in safe mode?
You can also try Ad-aware to remove some things Spybot can't.

I did all the others in normal mode and only avast in safe mode because I hate going into it
Spybot is half done. And I'll see what it finds.

I used to have Ad-Aware but Im now about to download again.
Does it have on access protection?

Spybot finished and there was no infection. Which I think means it removed the remains of the other one on start up
Downlaoded Ad-Aware 2007 did a full scan with it and it found only tracing cookies :thumbsup:

I think Im in the clear so I uninstalled ad-aware because I don't really need it.

Thanks for the help though :flowers:
I overreacted for nothing :trumpet:

Glad to hear the issue has been resolved

Thanks quietman7

I have a question though about when I backed up my registry
I did a registry backup before the scan, and it found malware files in the registry so should I back up again now Im clean? And will it over write the original backup?

It would not hurt to back up a clean registry. As for overwriting the old, that depends on how you backed it up (what program you used), what name was assigned, and what name is given to the next backup. ERUNT is an excellent FREE tool that allows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed.
