Hi guys ! i recently sent another Malware called SpywareQuake to exile from my OS. (I used this forum' guide, Thx!)
Now its seems evil wants another chance, and is trying to make it way into my OS again.
I use Spy Watcher and it' log keep informing me of 2 Trojans that attempt to breakthrough:
first process is : mssearchnet.exe. The second is: nvctrl.exe.
These evil twins also try to highjack my homepage.

Luckly Spywatcher is doing it' job, but i dont wanna take a risk..it might crash someday or something, then i'll be penetrated..

Thanks in advance.

nvctrl.exe and mssearchnet.exe are both related to SpywareAxe.

Please see the self-help tutorial How to remove Spyaxe.
