Hunter and Windows Defender have found everything (actually they find
very little). Spyware Doctor came up with 46 items on the first scan
(and left an empty log file). The infection name for about 38 of
thesewas called "SpywareCleaner".
It also listed "Rogue Anti-Spyware Products" 3x.
It did mention that something I posted earlier was called a System Sleuth
Keylogger from DivineDownloads.com.
The file was named:
and it was in this directory:
c:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Microsoft\Installer
None of the other programs picked this up. It said the risk was high.
I manually deleted a few items from the drive and the registry and the
next scan showed nothing.
However, the program was such a memory hog and insinuated itself into so
many other programs, that I had to delete it. My Outlook express was
hanging as was my IE 6.
I then did a Regseeker scan and found numerous instances of dll files
from Spyware Doctor still in the registry after rebooting. This dll file
was in the registry as were others associated with the program.
My advice is to get about three or four good registry cleaning programs
(Regseeker, Regscrub, and the Spybot and CCleaner tools are good). Even
PC Tools Registry Mechanic isn't bad, but I noticed it forced itself into
my startup programs in the registry.
