Hello,

I am going to be honest here - the amount of malware that is present on your system is HUGE!! Your system is terribly infected, backdoored, rootkits, keyloggers, password stealers - anything you don't want on your system is present.

The damage it already caused is huge as well and not everything will be repairable again.
If you really want to clean this up, I can try to help you, but keep in mind, cleaning this up will take very long and I can't guarantee that you will ever be able to trust your system in the future again.

That's why I recommend you backup your important files, format your system and reinstall windows. This is the best, safest and fastest solution.

Thanks for your your reply. I decided a couple days ago to take your recommended route. I could not get it close to stable with Mcafee, ANtiVir, Lava Soft, or eTrust. I am in the process of reinstalling and reconfiguring.

Thanks,
Mark

You made the right decision. :thumbsup:

Also read my preventionspeech to prevent this in the future:

To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

* Avoid illegal sites, because that's where most malware is present.
* Don't click on links inside popups.
* Don't click on links in spam messages claiming to offer anti-spyware software; because most of these so called removers ARE spyware.
* Download free software only from sites you know and trust. Because a lot of free software can bundle other software, including spyware.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (Housecall and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

If you are having XP SP2, read here how to configure Security Features for Internet Explorer:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...xp/iesecxp.mspx
