My computer first got infected with Brave Sentry (basically SpySheriff, but with another name) about two weeks ago. I got the little pop-up in my toolbar saying my computer was infected, I went to 'X' out of it, and then a spyware search began.

After a few failed attempts of stopping it, and rebooting my computer, I finally was able to log on to my windows account under Safe Mode with Networking, ran: SpySweeper, Spybot S&D, Ad-aware, and AVG Virus. Brave Sentry was removed, and I was good... so I thought.

With my AVG Virus scans SpySheriff kept coming up, but my computer was still working. Sometimes when I log on to my Windows account I get a new hardware installation notice for 'Plug and Play Monitor' I always cancle it, but once I turn off my computer and go to turn it on later, I will get the Blue Screen of Death. And again, my computer will only work if I access it through Safe Mode with Networking (I can't get onto the admin account cause SpySheriff changes it when I use Safe Mode).

I've spent two days trying to remove this. I've found other sites that list the processes to kill and what registry files to delete, but I don't have any of them.

The only file that seems to be on my computer is desktop.htt

The only program that I have that even detects it is AVG Virus... but it can't delete it. I've tried all the programs listed on this site to do before the HTJ postings, but none of them caught it. I really need some help here, I'm sick of always being in Safe Mode! (And my System Restore won't work, apparently another problem from SpySherrif)

Here is my HijackThis report:

(One last thing, when I go into regedit and do a search for "desktop.htt" it finds this:

Value Name:
PersistMoniker

Value Data:
file://%userappdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop.htt

Is it safe to delete the registry? I'm afraid of deleting registries cause I killed my computer a few years back because of it)

Heya :thumbsup:

I would like to see if any other startups are involved. To do this, I need to see another type of log please. Go here and download Silent Runners.vbs to a new folder on your Desktop (Clicking the the download link works if you use IE. If you use FireFox, rightclick on the link and choose "Save Link As") and run it. It generates a log too. It takes a minute or two and it will notify you with a popup when your log is ready (make sure you wait for the popups please) Please post the information back in this thread too (you may need to make a couple of posts). If your antivirus program queries the script, allow it to run. It's not malicious.
