This is a trojan/backdoor virus and I'm having a lot of trouble getting rid of it. What it does is constantly resets my homepage to a random "newgenlook" homepage, and every time it does that, it drops a bunch of short-cuts on my desktop. Anyone familiar with this virus and a way to clean it? Thanks in advance.

Hiya matey,

Run these 2 scans and let them fix whatever they want too:
Housecall Trendmicro
Panda ActiveScan

Run these 2 malware scanners:
Spybot:S&D Download
Ad-Aware SE Download

Download "HiJackThis"
and put in the HTJ Forum

Good luck.

Another application you should download, update and run is the Microsoft Anti-spyware Beta

I was able to get rid of this byfirst disabling it in the services and then rebooting (log off did not fix it) once disabled and rebooted, virus scan was able to delete the file. I could not stop the service or the process, so this was the only way that worked for me.

I hope they start catching the mutants that put this bleep out on the web and hang them by their genitals (just my 2 cents.)
