Hi guys, hopefully someone here can help me out.
I know I have a problem, but it may be more than one.
I first knew something was wrong when I found a Windows update shield in my systray that would not go away despite installing it.
(Its the Microsoft Malicious Software removal tool)
Also a BHO makes Google search results go haywire !
jusched.exe fails soon after startup saying it has a problem and has to close.
Have tried system restore but although there are many checkpoints, after reboot the restore has failed.
Tried running ad-aware which just will not start.
Spybot search and destroy gives:
'Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.'
Tried Spyhunter, ESET, Hotcpu, MBAM (followed the instructions re zztoy etc, but it didn't update).
Nothing starts or else starts then disappears straight away.
Really feeling lost, its a family computer with 6 identities, so really do not want to re-install from scratch. Last time I repaired from a genuine XP disk there were a few files skipped. Never got to the bottom of that either.
I have a genuine copy of XP sp3 with Avira, Spybot, Ad-aware and Spyware Guard !
Any help would be MOST appreciated !
