Hi Everyone,

I'm new to the Forum, so I hope I've posted this in the right place. My Dad's computer is infected with the Rogue Spyware program -Malware Defender 2009. It was running Sunbelt Firewall and AVG (free) Anti Virus but this virus has still got through. I'm unsure what harm it's doing but it constantly pops up with fake scan results, urging him to buy the full version. It also opens internet explorer windows, slows the system down to a grind and tries to launch outlook?

I've tried all number off anti-spyware programs sincewe found the virus last wednesday, but had no joy. Programs tried include MBAM Anti-Malware, CCleaner, AVG Antivirus, Spyware Search and Destroy, Ad Aware AE, Vundo Fix, OTMoveIt3, SpyWare Blaster & HiJack This. I've also tried Spyware Doctor but this won't fix any errors unless you upgrade to the full version. I have tried running in safe mode while using these programs and disabling system restore points but had no joy(The virus still launches pop ups while in safe mode!!). After much deliberating I decided to try to manually remove Malware Defender 2009 from the system and registry, but couldn't find the files specified on various internet sites as being linked to the virus in any case. This virus is way out of my league, if anyone can help, I would really, really appreciate and I know my Dad would be a lot let stressed.

This is a copy of the log from HiJack This:
