I have attached a hijackthis log, and I would appreciate your assistance.

I do not have a file entry in the 20 section.

I have a file win-eto.com/sp.htm?id=31403. I am redirected to a website named win-eto.com. I have more than one of these files in my system.

I am also redirected to t.swapx.cc/h.php?aid=31403.

Various spyware is loaded into my computer. I am able to remove it with Spybot S&D, but spyware is reloaded each time I get on the net. First spyware loaded is Hellz Little Spy: Executable C:/WINDOWS/SYSTEM/system.exe.

Spybot is unable to remove browser thief.

Adaware has been separated from its file of spyware programs.

Cannot update Adaware, update is blocked.

Attempted to download and run A Square. Downloaded program, was redirected to update, could not successfully update and run. Each attempt to run redirects to update.

What do you suggest?

bobnix, welcome.

Please print this out and follow ALL these directions carefully.

The system is infected with Backdoor.OptixPro.13.C by the presence of system.exe

Looks like you are also a victim of the latest CoolWebSearch (CWS) hijack.

Download the latest v1.98.2 version of HijackThis to post your log here:

These infections disable the infection removal.

Make sure 'show all files' is enabled:

Boot into Safe Mode by tapping F8 key repeatedly at bootup.
More detailed instructions here:

Find and delete if still present:
C:/WINDOWS/SYSTEM/system.exe <== file

Reboot and Install the prevention protection below and help your friends from being infected on the Internet.

Empty the Recycle Bin frequently.

Run CleanUp! as the Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there.
Then reboot to let it clean out what it found.

By the way, in order to improve Internet Explorer (IE) performance the Temporary(TIF)should be cleaned out periodically.
Also, it is a good idea to limit the size of the TIF to 200MB for performance sake.
In IE go to Tools then Internet Options then Settings and move the slider down to 200MB.

Download and install WinPatrol.

Browser settings for increased security:

Install IE-SPYAD then run the install.bat in the ie-spyad folder and SpywareBlaster then keep them up to date as today's Internet is full of nasty infections.

You should install ALL WindowsCritical Updates to help from being continually infected.
In Internet Explorer go to Tools then Windows Updates and install each patch one by one rebooting when necessary.
