So I don't know how to remove whatever impossible to remove malware I have going on.
When I run most scans they find nothing. Even my Superantispyware no longer finds any cookies. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall it but it never finds any tracking cookies like it used to. It feels like someone is disabling all my scanners from finding anything. I know it's not working right (and probably lots of other scanners aren't either) because when I run hitman pro I just got a few dozen tracking cookies which it deleted. The primary threat it finds is a 'Quarantine.exe' file which it labels as a trojan in C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp\
Further, when I try to run something like TFC it simply locks up. Several other scanners just do not work at all. Rkill finds nothing to remove. Adwcleaner does sometimes. JRT finds nothing. (always used to) Nothing ever gets permenantly fixed.
Anyway Hitman defaults to 'Quarantine' the Quarantine.exe file but I have deleted it before and it constantly comes back. What is this? Is it a residual trace of previous scans? I know somethings going on.
Also these tracking cookies hitman pro finds are all .com files. Are they usually? What can I scan with to try to remove everything. I've done it all. The only firewall I have up is mbam live security (which occasionally blocks ip address accessing) and the default windows xp firewall. I would like to use a better firewall but this computer is slow and when I had comodo up and running it ran about 70% slower. Any smaller type of firewalls I can use? I think I need some kind of HIPS running and to define a policy so I don't keep getting reinfected. What programs can I scan with to find out whats really going on? Thanks
