Malware problem - help needed!

  Rhuddlan 18:58 31 Mar 2006

Hi all, my computer has got loads of Malware I think? A program called Spyware Quake 2.0 has been installed and can't be removed. It uninstalles in add/remove programs but then re-appers again. There is an icon flashing in the taskbar for this program too which won't go away! My home page has been changed to about:blank and is comingup with when I open internet explorer? It states on this website that this computer is being viewed or along those lines by this IP address (and whatever the numbers are) these files are in danger, system 32, internet explorer, my documents and drive c. And it also says something about [email protected]?

Help needed please, I'm going away on holiday tommorrow and would like to solve this problem asap!

Many thanks, Mat.

Turn System Restore Off ( you will lose all your old restore points) boot in safe mode (Tap F8 when booting)uninstall the program while in safe mode and reboot. Don't forget to tur system restore back on.Then scan again with Ewido

I think GANDALF <|:-)> and Fruit Bat /\0/\ have the right answer.
