I've already run Adaware, Spybot, and Windows Defender, but my problems quickly return, always on a reboot, and occasionally during normal operation. My homepagfe has been changed to an advertisement for a spyware checker, the same one that constantly pops up asking to be installed, and other popups keep showing up. Help would be much appreciated.

As long as you have P2P programs you WILL BE infected
==========================
You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted: "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.

A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply along with a new hijack log.

The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Warning: running option #2 on a non infected computer will remove your Desktop background.
===================
Download Hoster from here:
www.funkytoad.com/download/hoster.zip
Run the program Hoster and press Restore Original Hosts, OK, and Exit Program.
=====================
Add remove programs - remove limewire - ares

===============

Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ (W2K/XP Only)
Install ewido.
Run the application
Clickon scanner
then select the "Settings" tab.
Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Delete".
Under "Reports"
Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"
Un-Select "Only if threats were found"
Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
When the scan is finished, Set all items to delete
Apply all actions
look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
Save the report to your C: Drive
This will take some time to run!
RE-Boot
Post that log and a new HiJack log
"Nothing could be finer than to be in South Carolina ............"
