Because he was being so shady I never got to see exactly what happened; I can only surmise that AVG may have detected a threat but he chose to ignore it as I would find out he had used said sites (it was Limewire etc last time) I ran a spybot scan which discovered a total of 8 or 10 entries of a trojan called Virtumonde; subsequent inquiries have led me to the conclusion this is a bad one. Despite being removed by Spybot, it keeps returning or at least a small portion is hanging in there. I am using a laptop at the moment as I do not want to go online with the main pc.Even with the modem disconnected if I try to get Google up, another window also appears with a series of numbers in the browser.
I am currently about to try the Hijack this route; Adaware 2008 has cleared some threats but a lot of cookies left; unfortuneatly it froze and was unable to remove everything.I noticed a WLLoginProxy.exe in the task manager , is this significant? I also tried System restore but there were no dates prior to the day I was on. Anyway, I have followed the guide as best as I can, have had to do it offline so no updates, hope it'll be ok. Have now tried Hjackthis and enclose the logfile:
(I hope this insert works)
