Just when I thought I got rid of the viruses and spyware/adware that infected my computer, I did a last and final check scan with my AV's and Anti-Spyware. Ad-Aware didn't detect anything, McAfee hasnt either. SUPERAntiSpyware picked up the Trojan.Downloader-Gen/Inst2 When I think that I got rid of all the viruses that I had on my computer theres always a little something left. I have spent 6 days trying to get rid of everything. I am running on Windows XP and I have McAfee, AOL Spyware Protection, Spybot, SUPERAntiSpyware, and Ad-Aware SE.

Here are links of the forms that I had previously posted with my problems so you can get a better idea what I've been trying to deal with:

The steps that I followed that people have told me to do worked getting most of the viruses that my computer was infected with gone. Can anyone help me please???? Thanks in advanced!

The scan is finished and I see that the Trojan is affecting my system restore. Yesterday I had the same problem but with a different type of trojan and now today I have this one....

You are not finished with the Hijack This forum where you are getting expert help.

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.
