Hello. A co-worker has become a victim of a drive-by download over the lunch hour. :thumbsup:

We were able to run defogger, but only because it is so quick. DDS and GMER are killed as soon as the program window appears and we're offered a chance to buy some protection from viruses.

Task manager and regedit are similarly disabled and replaced with another offer for software purchase.

Internet explorer is also hacked - web pages appear as a fake warning about unsafe browsing with an offer to purchase surfing protection.

This is a 64-bit windows XP Pro machine.

Infected user is (was?) an administrator on the machine. Running as a least-priviledged user on our network prevents access to most registry keys.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your help.

- Bob at Work
