First we need to know your operating system and service pack please.

If the infections are reappearing, it is likely that a registry value is restoring them.

When this kind of thing has happened to me in the past when I was trying to clean up a computer, I would physically disconnect from the internet and start using a clean computer to download installers and manual updates to and then burn to cd or transfer to a usb jump drive.

After installing an antimalware program and updating I would reboot to safe mode and scan from there, it might takes several scans with several programs

The malwarebyte's developer says running a scan from safe mode then regular mode might help

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

service pack 3


that's a beta and I would have been very careful about where I got it from

even the one from MS breaks computers

Hi and welcom to this site :thumbsup:

with respect; surely if you have a back door trojan on there , for your computer and identity safety I would suggest you will need to reformat and reinstall your OS?

do you do any on line banking on this computer or anything involving passwords?

I guess you do P2P stuff on there ?

yu could try running these FREE programs

superantispyware
http://www.superantispyware.com/superantis...efreevspro.html
asquared
http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/
its exe is
http://download6.emsisoft.com/a2FreeSetup.exe

you will need to download them, fully update the definitons, reboot into safe mode and run each on a FULL DEEP scan ; see what they identify?

also please read


http://www.nospysoftware.com/spyware-artic...oor-trojans.php

especially

One of the most common uses of Trojans is to access the accounts of a user. It can be a bank account, credit card account or an email account. All of them contain important information about your life and finances. And that is what a cracker is craving for. Before you know it, your credit card could be used for buying things at the other side of the world.


and plenty more of it on a google search FOR back door trojans

The service pack 3 came from microsoft...i havent had problems from the service pack ..its more of a registry problem ,i keep getting different viruses installed on my computer and its because i have a backdoor open ,i just dont kbnow how to close the ports thats letting them in and uninstalling the registry values that are allowing it...i used norton to find the registry values but there are over 5oo registry entries from 5 viruses ...and it would take me a week to find them all having to reset all those values and delete the exixting ones causing the problem.I just thought there might be an easier way ...but now im worried..

please do the suggested scans and see what they report back BUT, a back door trojan IS that, and I suggest you will NOT get rid of it without a reformat and reinstall of your OS

HAVE you done any on line banking with this computer or any P2P stuff?

and yes you need TO be worried with all the muck that is most probably well accumulating on the computer infection -wise
