Was dealing with this sucker and tried to get Malwarebytes and Superantispyware to run, finally bagged it and ran Combofix. System is back to normal EXCEPT IE will not run, and I can't edit or delete the Iexplore executable, which has apparently been fouled up by the spyware.
It is not listed in Add/remove programs, so I can't repair it from there. I tried to reinstall the ie.inf file, but we don't have the XP disk available, and it fails.

I even pulled the IE 7.0 setup exe from the Microsoft website, ran the setup, rebooted, and got the EXACT same errors on startup.
What's going on here?? :thumbsup:
