Registry Continually Being Modified

  Henryk 13:04 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.

Has anyone any advice regarding this constant registry modification?

Try booting into safe mode (press F8 repeatedly as pc boots) and run your antivirus/adware/spyware tools again.They will often remove a good deal more in safe mode than when Windows(and any malware) is fully up and running.Also download and run CleanUp click here (have a read of Learn how to use CleanUp on the same page before you use it).Many nasties like to lurk in the Temp files directory and CleanUp will shift them.
