When I ran a Uniblue Spyeraser scan, it comes up with two infected registry keys results that I'am worried about. The first one is named PSW-Stealer.Nilage (General Components). The infected key is identified as hkey_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\services\6to4\parameters\. This infection is described by Uniblue as a password cracking program that steals encrypted passwords on a computer or a computer network. It usually runs in stealth mode to avoid detection and can pose serious security and privacy threats. I googled this first infection and the results were not good. This infection could be a trojan.
The second infection is named Malware (General Components). The infected key is given as hkey_current_user\software\microsoft\internet explorer\main\start page\about:blank
This second infection is described thus: Malware is a malicious program that is developed to seriously harm and damage the targeted system and may be installed without the knowledge or consent of the user. It can change sysem settings, corrupt the registry and destroy personal data.
I have since activated my Windows Firewall. My operating system is Windows XP Professional and I have installed AVG Free.
Will someone help me remove these infections? Thanks all.
