hello.

I have been having a problem with spyware latley. I have Spyware blaster installed, Spyware doctor, Nod32, spybot search and destroy, panicware pop up stopper, registry booster and registry mechanic, yet STILL i get all this spyware.

Is there ANY software out there that is free (preferably) that PREVENTS spyware from being installed in the first place (like spyware doctor and spyware blaster) and removes them, without using too much memory (spyware doctor takes up a LOT of memory)?

i am suprised that have so much spyware/viruses because i have several very reliable programs installed.... which ones should i get rid of if any ?

here is my Hijack this Log:

Hello,

* Please download VundoFix.exe to your C:\.
  • Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
  • Click the Scan for Vundo button.
  • Once it's done scanning, click the Remove Vundo button.
  • You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
  • Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
  • When completed, it will prompt that it will shutdown your computer, click OK.
  • Turn your computer back on.
Note: It is possible that VundoFix encountered a file it could not remove.
In this case, VundoFix will run on reboot, simply follow the above instructions starting from "Click the Scan for Vundo button." when VundoFix appears at reboot.

After reboot,

* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following if still present (some entries won't be present anymore):

* Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

Post a new hijackthislog and the contents of C:\vundofix.txt in your next reply.

Is there ANY software out there that is free (preferably) that PREVENTS spyware from being installed in the first place (like spyware doctor and spyware blaster) and removes them, without using too much memory (spyware doctor takes up a LOT of memory)?

Yes, spyware doctor is a huge resource hog and doesn't remove what it finds if you didn't purchase it.
Spywareblaster is no spyware remover, it doesn`t scan and clean for malware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.
Take a look in my signature under Antispyware scanners for free alternatives.
But, most important thing is here - even with the best scanners installed, if you visit questionable sites, they won't protect you anyway. So it's all a matter of where you surf.

Also,

registry booster and registry mechanic, yet STILL i get all this spyware.

Always be careful with Registry Tools/Cleaners! It's not the first time that someone had to reinstall Windows because they used a registry Cleaner. It may show a lot of "false positives" - for example, it shows so called orphaned keys, but in fact they are needed.
A broken registry is a broken Windows.
