I have been infected by a nasty file that my security software wont get rid of. The characteristics of this are as follows 1) The file takes over task manager, my desktop wallpaper, and my security center. 2) An image with a message appears on the desktop telling me tyo purchase malware removal software. 3) Pop up windows contiuallly come up telling me I'm being attacked by a hijacker. 4) Many features are disabled, including some Internet functionality.

I downloaded a couple of programs to help with the removal. In another blog, this person had an identical problem, same file name and everything. I followed these instructions, and everything seems to be relativley fine. However, would someone please read my log files to see if I did everything ok. I would appreciate this.

You should not be following specific instructions provided to someone else especially if they were given in the HijackThis forum. Those instructions were given under the guidance of a trained staff expert to help fix that particular member's problems, NOT YOURS. Before taking any action, the helper must investigate the nature of the malware issues and then formulate a fix for the victim. Although your problem may be similar, the solution could be different based on the kind of hardware, software, system requirements, etc. and the presence of other malware. Using someone else's fix instructions could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system. It's best that you tell us what specific issues YOU are having rather than point to someone else.

Please tell us what OS (Win 2K, XPsp1, XPsp2, Vista) you are using, what steps you have already taken and what log files you want examined.
