I was infected with either a virus or spyware earlier today. I was able
to use
system restore to get to where I am functioning again but I do
not believe all
is well. I ran adaware, Norton and spybot. Spybot had
some artifacts that it
could not remove. Norton found two entries. I
have yet to reboot for fear that
the malware will reappear. I need
desperate help. Thanks in advance for any

Only download software you can validate as uncompromised - in the case
of non-vendor site you have no guarantee that the files are unmodified
or uncompromised. Anyone providing a link to a non-vendors site with a
direct download should not be trusted, the vendors sites are the safest
place to download their application.

No person of sound mind would download files from a hack site that
requires a password to access the unknown files when they are available
directly from the vendors.

Always remember - only download files from Trusted Sites.

The following links will take you to vendors sites for Spy Ware / Ad
ware removal tools and also for Antivirus tools. After you install any
of these applications and update them, run them in SAFE MODE to allow
them to properly clean your system.

First, make sure that your Java is updated to the latest version:

These sites are for downloading Anti-Malware and Anti-Spyware tools, in
order that I would use them myself:

Dave Lipman's tools:
Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --

AdAwareSE can be found here:

SpyBot Search and Destroy can be found here:

SmitRem.exe by Noahdfear's SmitFraud, SpyAxe, SpyFalcon, removal tool

Leythos - (remove 999 to email me)

Learn more about PCBUTTS1 and his antics and ethic and his perversion
with Porn and Filth. Just take a look at some of the FILTH he's created
and put on his website:
3rd link shows what he's exposed to children (the link I've include does
not directly display his filth). You can find the same information by
googling for 'PCBUTTS1' and 'exposed to kids'.

Well, maybe you could describe what exactly your problem is? Other than you
toying around for no good reason?

Download any free anti-spyware program that can help you to remove the
I recommend you to download the free program called Spyware sweeper
from This will manually remove the spy ware,
which is
hijacking your browser. You would find detailed instructions
at the site.

Unlikely that it will. After all, it has to rely on the data that are
emitted from the compromised system, and it has no reference point either.

Don't do a system restore. Those files are likely infected and should be
removed. After following Leythos' instructions, disable system restore
and restart it.

Unfortunately, the quickest way to being back to a known clean point
is to reformat and reinstall Windows from original media.     Try to
get your data off to an external drive first.  

Reinstall windows,  run windows update and reboot about 20 times in
teh process from behing a hardware firewall of some sort until you're
completely up to date, install a reputable antivirus program, and only
then mount the external drive with your data, have the AV clean that,
then move the data back to your newly installed system.

It might take you a day, but the alternative apparently isn't working
any better, and you'll never know that you're truly clean at this
