Currently I am working on a customers computer and it is infected with Winhound and E2Give.
I have done the usual stuff: Spybot, Ad-Aware, E-Wido, Microsoft Anti-Spyware, HiJackThis, SmitREM, etc, with no luck.
I have removed C:\Program Files\E2Give and HKLM\SOFTWARE\E2G (or E2Give) successfully, but after a reboot they all come back.
HKLM\SOFTWARE\winhound.com cannot be removed no matter what I do, even hooking up the hard drive to another machine and loading the hive, it will say "permission denied" (I checked the permissions too).
Also, I have hooked the hard drive up to another computer and scanned for viruses (with Norman, which rocks), cleaning out the temp files, arranging the system32 and windows directorys by modified and removing the relevent files.
Clearly I have done alot, is there anything else I can do short of a reinstall?
Thank you for your time.
