Ok so I noticed that spysweeper has been missing sweeps for a few days and I decided to look into it. I scanned with other scanners and nothing was found then I used the microsoft online scanner and it found QQRob1_0 which I did a little research on and found out it's a password stealer that disables spyware programs. Guess that explains the missed sweeps.

At first microsoft said it couldn't remove it then it said it did remove it. That night spysweeper did it's auto scan so I thought it was fixed but then the next night it missed it again. I also have Spyware doctor missing it's sweeps. And today I came home and AVG was turned off. I tried to get into safemode but it just sat at the partition screen for like 15 mins so I shut it down. After getting back into the regular mode spysweeper won't even turn on now. Even when I try to open it, it will open but if I close it it won't stay running in the system tray. I need to get this piece of crap off of here. Please help me.

I also noticed when going into safe mode that at the bottom of the screen it said somthing like "press esc the cancle sptd.sys from loading". Don't think I've noticed that before.

ADMIN NOTE: This is a family friendly site, so we would appreciate it if you were a bit more careful in describing your problems~g

Welcome to BC..

please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
