Severe virus problems

  Trikie 20:55 03 Apr 2005

Despite the new Microsoft Beta1, ad-Awre , Avast and Spybot S&D which all find and delete (they say) vatious problems they all return within minutes. Details are loss of internet connection and _ found by Microsoft-
180 search assistant
Target Saver Trojan Downloads
IST Power Scan
IST ISTbar ContentMatchControl
Wind Updates Media Access Adware
People on Page Browser Modifier
Apropos Media.

Latest problem is Microsoft Beta1 freezing when removing IST ISTbar Content Match Control.

Any suggestions please. Thanks

Download and run Hijack this click here then when it runs, post the analysis log and wait for one of the experts to pin down what's wrong. It sounds like you have a particularly pernicious bit of self reloading spyware, but they'll be able to analyse it better than I can.

I see you do not have a firewall installed. Google for Zone Alarm and instal it. It`s freeware and good

I recently downloaded Easy Cleaner (by ToniArts)
It is free and very comprehensive. Use it with care though, esp going into the Registry, unless you know what you are doing.
You can also schedule it to perform automatically once a day or week, etc.
One other word of caution....always omit Office from the delete options.
Good luck!

Belatucadrus thanks. I've run Hijack and have a 2 screen Notepad of data. Do I copy it all here? Is there enough space?

You will have to post it in 2 or 3 chunks.

Buchan 35, thanks. I've gone to Zone Alarm but can't install untill the system is clean.

Where's the rest?

  Trikie 22:47 03 Apr 2005

VoG, thanks. I've printed out all the links you gave but think I will need to get someone with more knowledge to actually take action - its beyond my experience and i don't want to do morw harm.

The last link was to Symantes for W32 HLLW Goabot.BC - is this one of my problems, I don't recognise it.
