Hi,

unfortunately I have found today this virus I can't get rid of.
Basically I can delete if from its location (c:\windows\system32 - I'm using Windows XP Home) but it seems like it doesn't help and it comes back and tries to install itself in my machine all over again.

I'm sing Symantec Antivirus - the most updated version as well as Microsoft AntiSpyware and both do not detect it.

How can I get rid of it?

It also affects my internet since I can't access some of the sites (olike eBay and others) while I can access to others. I didn't find any common reason for the sites I can access and those I can not.

If someone has a solution I will be more than happy and thankfull to try it.

Thanks,
A.P

hookdump.exe - Identified as Trojan.Win32.TopAntiSpyware.m by Kapersky

Run these online virus scanners:
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Are you using these basic security programs?
(They're all free.)

aČ free - a complementary product to antivirus software which is specialized in protection against harmful software. Antivirus software often features an inadequate protection against Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. aČ fills this gap.
Ad-Aware - A good program similar to SpyBot S & D.
Spybot S&D - Detects and removes spyware, of different types, from your computer.
SpywareBlaster - A good program that prevents spyware from being installed on your computer in the first place. This program is always running in the background, protecting your computer. It prevents the installation of bad active X controls found in web pages.
SpywareGuard - A nice compliment to SpywareBlaster. This allows you the option to prevent downloads that contain bad active X controls.

If not, you need to. These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.

Important:
Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.

If that doesn't help, then:
