Re: pernicious virus attack
| I am running windows xp pro sp2 with all the updates. I am running

| on this virus, any ideas on how I would clean my system?
First, it is NOT a virus it is a Trojan.
Chances are it is a Conhook type Trojan.
Look in the below area of the Registry...
Look for a a key theat loads; hgaawv.dll and see if you can delete that key.
If not (it is a protected key) then boot into the Recovery Console.
Logon as administrator
Reboot into Normal Mode then delete the key under the Winlogon\Notify
