I E & Registry being modified

  Henryk 19:32 17 May 2005


I appear to have an infection on my PC. I am running on Windows 98 2nd Ed Dial up connection and use Firefox and Internet Explorer. I run Adaware SE with Adwatch and AVG Antivirus.

Adwatch is continually monitoring registry modification. This is going on non stop. I have removed Backdoor, Coolwebsearch annd apparently VX2 this was done using Spybot, CWShreader & Spysubtract and also Symantic, Backdoor Autoupder Removal Tool.

In addition I have found that I E favourites are being modified to a great extent (ex. Financial and porn sites)

Has anyone any advice regarding this constant problem.

A little program (affiliated with Spybot S&D) for future added protection:
