I am having trouble writing this, as the alerts get in the way. Excuse grammar mistakes.

I have recently gotten a virus. I got a download.trojan which downloaded the spy sherrif crap, which I sucessfully removed but it also installed other viruses. I have no idea what they are called, because norton, ewido, trend micro online scan, ad-aware, and spybot do not pick anything up. The problem I'm having is] I have symantec check outgoing messages, and each outgoing message a small window pops up off to the side telling me the scan progress. I have about 20-30 coming up at a time right now, and not only that but it constantly gives me errors about email addresses not existing, my ip being filtered, and the connection to my mail server is being stopped or something. I have no idea how to fix this, because I don't have a n ame4 for it. I don't get anything int he scans i run and nothing is fixed. i have tried all manner of googling and of using symantec's site, but nothing will help me in anyway. i have posted on a couple forums and no one has any idea. after posting this i will rmeove connection t o the internet so i don't further damager stuff, and will check every half hour or so. if anyone can help me in any way i would much appreciate this. i am unable to do a restore because the restore points don't work, and i never had a big enough hard drive for a ghost image my windows xp is oem and i have no disc and i'd rather not have to re-install my software anyway.

Be aware that, when removing some viruses, that the fix may be worse than the cure. This is because the viruses destroy important files on your system that the anti-virus can't fix.

Post the HJT log, get it cleaned, and then we can fix the system.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
