I have been attacked by the malware virus spyaxe and related popups with the following box that will not go away.

"Your computer is infected!
Windows has detected spyware infection.
If is recommended to use special antispyware tools to prevent data loss.
Windows will now download and install the most up-to-date antispyware for you.
Click here to protect your computer from spyware."

I have followed the instructions posted by Grinler except for the following items:

I have run ad-aware many times and after a run where no further items are found I have discovered that 10 minutes later more items appear.

I did not run panda as it notified me that it was not compatible with windows xp sp-2. However I did run both housecal and bitdefender.

I could not run mcafee stinger as it either was temporarily not available or no longer available.

I have been having some problems with what to allow to upload onto the internet through the syugate firewall that I just installed but I think I am ok now.

I appreciate any help someone can give to completely eliminate this pest.

Everytime I go into my programs I see spyaxe 3.0 listed.

Download the SpyAxeFix.exe here:

http://noahdfear.geekstogo.com/SpyAxeFix.exe

Save it to your desktop. Close all other programs and windows. Double click SpyAxeFix.exe, then click Start to extract the tool to it's own folder. Open the SpyAxeFix folder and double click the SpyAxeFix.bat to start the tool. At one point when the tool runs, your taskbar will disappear, and your computer will restart when the tool completes. A text file will be created in the SpyAxeFix folder. Post it's contents and a new Hijack This log in your thread here:

:woot: Click here for info on how to boot to safe mode if you don't already know how. Now copy these instructions to notepad and save them to your desktop. You will need them to refer to in safe mode. Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:


:trumpet: Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.


:inlove: Run Ewido:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
  • When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.

:cool: Start Ccleaner and click Run Cleaner


:) Go to Control Panel > Internet Options. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.

Next go to Control Panel > Display. Click on the "Desktop" tab then click the "Customize Desktop" button. Click on the "Web" tab. Under "Web Pages" you should see an entry checked called something like "Security info" or similar. If it is there, select that entry and click the "Delete" button. Click OK then Apply and OK.

Restart back into Windows normally now.


:bike: Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it. Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself.
- Save the results from the scan!

Post a new HiJackThis log along with the results from ActiveScan and the ewido scan
