Acting on your advise I installed SpyBot to help me find malfunctions and bad programs. However when I use it something weird happens. It finds something called "Mailbot" and a window opens telling me it has detected a system service identified as a threat: "i386p" and sas it has been shut down. When I click OK SpyBot resumes for a second and the becomes non responsive. I have to close it down via task maneger.

I have tried to reinstall several times and also tried not to install all the updates but with the same problem.
Has anyone else had this problem??

Thanks :thumbsup:

Have you tried scanning with Spybot in Safe Mode?

Oh bleep!

After using House Call and it found some infections I thougt I should use it again but now it starts with "hc.applet.implementation started" and stays there.

So I canīt get a scan from SpyBot and I canīt get a scan from Housecall and my Google is still hijacked.

Canīt someone help a desperate man?
