Hello.

My laptop was infected with the Symantec email proxy virus and it is driving me crazy. Dozens of notifications pop up multiple times a day informing me that failed attempts have been made to send hundreds of emails that I never wrote. I must restart the computer each time in order for my email program to work properly.

I downloaded HijackThis and ran it through a site that analyzes the data. Then, I attempted to remove four files deemed parasitic. The first three, I removed easily, however, the following file, highlighted as problematic, cannot be removed using either HijackThis or Killbox. O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [ctfmon.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\ctfmon.exeCtfmon.exe
"CoolWebSearch Ctfmon32 parasite variant" Do you know why I cannot remove it? Is it perhaps a needed file afterall?

I am providing my Hijackthis scan. I would be most grateful if you would check it for other potentially harmful files that may be linked to this Symantec email proxy virus. Any suggestions would be hugely appreciated.

Thank you!!
