I have a problem with I assume a trojan. When I run spybot it finds and deletes it but it appears to reinstall itself straight away. It opens unwanted sites (fp.gad-network.com being one of them) Casino sites and numerous other sites!!!!
SpyBot identifies it as MagicControl.Agent......User Settings
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2176207014-4204940764-92407713-1007\software\LanConfig

I have ran numerous spyware,Anti Virus programs.....nothing seems to shift the little pest!!!!

Any help,ideas would be much appreaciated

click here Try this one, it's really no good posting the log here it needs an expert to look at it and advise. Also when you have posted it be patient they are all volunteers and get very busy.

Sorry about the first dud link.

When I run spybot it finds and deletes it but it appears to reinstall itself straight away.

It is probably hiding in the system restore files.

Switch off system restore (this will delete all your restore points), run spybot, delete the trojan, switch restore back on. run spybot again to make sure its gone.
