Greetings (again):

Big kudos to the diligent gurus (grinler, et. al.) that helped me unscrew my home computer last time . Being a former computer engineer myself, I learned a great dela form that experience.

Unfortunately, my laptop is now in similar trouble. I am stationed overseas and have been using the laptop as my primary station. In finishing a college project last night, I had to surf for some data and somehting must have gotten around my safeguards (BlackIce, Spyware Blaster, Norton AV, McAfee Stinger, etc.) and this may be something new (at least to me)

I conducted a search on your site and found no refernces to the Spyaxe malware. This little gem places 1 (at first 2) icons directly on the taskbar and a balloon continuously pops up directing you to the website for Spyaxe. In addition, any attempt to access the Web brings up a Win 32 redirect and a message that your personal files are being accessed by somebody. Very annoying.

I ran Norton AV-nothing. Mcafee Stinger-nothing. Deleted all temp files (Cleanmgr)-done. Ran AdAware a few times-all clean. Ran Spybot-DSO exploit only-cleaned it. Checked startup files-nothing. Ran HijackThis-deleted any weird entries. Restarted after all-no luck-it's still there.

A little more help.

Yes, that nasty little bug is showing up in HJT logs in this forum and others.

You could post a HiJackthis log in our HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum.
