Hi Everyone,

Recently i got infected with this Adult_chat.exe spyware dialer thingy.

I have the most up to date versions of Spybot, Spywarehunter, Microsoft Anti-spyware, and Adaware, and nothing seems to be able to remove it.

I have tried manually removing the files, as instructed on various websites, but many of them don't show up in my search. I delete all that i can find and then reboot, and presto, Adult Chat is back again!

Microsoft Anti-Spyware picked it up, and i removed it using that, but it didn't delete the xxxdialer.dun file, so i'm afraid it may have missed something or have not worked effectively.

Anyone have any advice? Does it have something to do with my System Restore?

Thanks a bundle!

Mod Edit: This will be moved to a more appropriate Forum.

The first thing I would do is to run your anti-spyware applications in Safe Mode with system restored temporarily disabled (this will delete prior restore points).
If this process fails to remove them, then consider submitting a HiJackThis! log to the our volunteer team of experts for their review and help:
