Thank you Quietman7 and Bobbysocks for your reply, my apology for taking so long to apply your suggestions and get back with the results.
I am running Win XP, the anti-virus program I use is BSafe, it updates every time I go on-line. I also have Spybot, Spyware X-Terminator and Ad-Aware SE. At your suggestion I downloaded SUPERAntiSpyware and Ewido. Here are the results:
Spybot continually finds "Altnet" and a series titled "Windows Security Center:AntivirusDisableNotify, :AntivirusOverride, :FirewallDisableNotify, :FirewallOverride, :SP2UDate, :UpdateDisableNotify.
Ad-Aware SE continually finds "MRU LIST", "Altnet BDE", and Zango.
Spyware X-Terminator continually finds "Cydoor".
None of these seem to be able to remove any of the problems. Altnet seems to present the biggest problem for these programs, when they go through the cleaning process, Altnet is the only one that the programs identify as not being able to remove, the others appear to get deleted, but running the programs over again brings up the same pest programs over and over!
I downloaded Ewido and had it run through its hard drive checks, it came up with a list of spyware programs which I then deleted. I ran Ewido again and it came up clean. But if I run Spybot, Ad-Aware or Spyware X-Terminator after, they come up with the same programs again and again regardless if it is done in Safe Mode or not.
I tried to manually remove Cydoor per your instructions, but could not find the any references to the program.
Thanks to both of you for your suggestions. Regardless of the potential for these programs to do harm, I want them all removed! Altnet seems to be the driving force behind the others, I don't know? It's frustrating. Any other help would be appreciated, I have small windows of time to sit here and clean up this mess, so forgive my delay in replying, but I do go through all the suggestions you give.
Anymore information I can provide for you?
