Hi. These two BHO's keep showing up in HiJackThis scans. They don't appear when I use Regedit-Computer-Find, but when I use the RegSearch application, they do. I follow the path for each one in the registry, delete the folder from the left-hand tree, turn off System Restore and reboot. There they are again in HiJackThis. Have deleted them from registry about 20 times. First one is AdShield which is a popup blocker I uninstalled a year ago and the other is malware known as UBMON. There is no file, so I don't think they are a danger, but would still like to get them out of the registry.
Thanks folks, you have been a great help in the past!

I don't advise turning off system restore as a method of getting rid of malware unless it's the last resort.
It sounds like you are being continually reinfected, what anti-virus and anti-spyware programs are you running and have you run them in Safe Mode?

Soltek QBIC, Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB, Netgear 54Mb/s WAP, ridiculously expensive Satellite Broadband
Windows XP Home SP2, Trend Micro Internet Security, Firefox, Thunderbird, AdAwareSE, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster, A-squared Free, Ewido Security Suite.

I use AVG Anti-Virus, AdAwareSE, SpyBot, SpywareBlaster, CW Shredder and HiJack This. I update daily and upgrade to a newer version of each one when ever available. I only turn off the system restore AFTER I have removed the BHO's from the Registry and BEFORE I reboot, so that the BHO's will not be in any future System Restore that I might instigate. I turn the System Restore back on first thing after I reboot. Thanks for any advise you can give. deango
