Ok here is the deal. I had OT look at my HJT logs as a second oponion and they were clean. He also had me use one of his programs and we took care of that. The thing is however, that about every week SpyFalcon keeps re-appearing. I am the only one who uses this computer, and in the past month I have used it only for Computer-Help forums, Email (the email is only used for Forum, and Myspace notifications), and Minor internet browsing. The only downloading I have made, are sequrity updates.

Is it possible that I have an open connection that I am unaware of? I have not allowed any unkown programs access to the internet, but I keep getting infections.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey WlkingMan

Firstly can you tell me what sort of protection you have running on the computer - in terms of AV/firewall etc... Also, it is possible that even though your HijackThis log may be clean, that some files have been hiding. I think that some newer files from spyfalcon can be hidden from HJT. Another thing, what do you mean by "SpyFalcon keeps re-appearing" - do you mean entries are flagged in the scan, or a full blown infection with Hijacked desktop etc....

Let me know...
