My son is visiting from his Navy station in Sicily, and I bought him a laptop. Although we had turned on Firewall Protection and activated Norton Antivirus, and he was trying to be careful with the sites he was visiting, he still managed to pull in some spyware. We bought some COTS software, but it didn't fix the problem. So, after trying to isolation, quarantine, and delete the goydr spyware, I decided to run hijackthis and post the log so see if I could get some additional help from you folks, since you did a great job helping me. He did register so that he can post later, and his username is hruzaj, but he can't get to his Navy email to finish his registration. So, I'm posting for him.

Thanks in advance for any help. Here's the log...

Hello Hruzam

First download the latest version of Ad-Aware at http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/

After installing AAW, and before running the program, FIRST update the reference file following these instructions.

Now do the following:

- Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Scanning Engine:
check: "Unload recognized processes during scanning."

- Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Cleaning Engine:
Check: "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

Press "Scan Now"

- Check option "Use Custom scanning options"
- Check option "Activate In-Depth Scan"
- Press "Select drives\folders to scan"
- Select the active partition which is usually C:

Now press "Next" to let Ad-aware scan your drives...
It will find a number of "bad" files and registry keys.
Right-click in that pane and choose "select all"

Now press "Next" again.
It will ask you whether you'd like to remove all checked items. Click OK.

Finally, close Ad-Aware.

Download Spybot S&D from Here
After installing, you MUST first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and installall updates.

Next, close all Internet Explorer windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove/fix all it finds.

Subsequently restart your computer.
That ought to get rid of most of your spyware.

Next go to the below online virus scanners and run a scan, make sure you set both to 'Auto Clean'. You should manually delete any non removable files.

Housecall
Panda Active Scan


Now run another Hijackthis scan, save the log and copy and paste it into your next reply. There will be more to do.

I know that it's been some time since I first posted this, but I wanted to be thorough in what I did. And I very much appreciate all the help I received here from several folks.

I followed all of the instructions to eliminate Spyaxe, and it seemed to do the trick as far as getting rid of the popups, and having my homepage taken over. However, I still saw Spyaxe as a program in my Programs Start menu. (I've been running XP Pro on an HP Pavillion 9795c - yeah, my desktop machine is a little old, but effective for my apps.) And, my computer was still running very slow. So, after running the various programs several times, I just decided to reformat, and reload all of my software.

The reload was successful, and now my computer is once again running up to speed. I only have one question...how do I get rid of my McAfee Active Shield? When I reloaded everything, I know I made one mistake. I started with my old HP System Recovery disks, which reloaded Win ME (what crap!). This is where the McAfee was loaded. I should have gone right to the Win XP Pro load, but by then, I thought, well, I'll just continue configuring, then select upgrade to the XP Pro. I then loaded my Norton Corporate AV, and all was fine. Except that McAfee pops up a dialog box every time I reboot asking me to update my AV signatures, which I don't want to do. I want to delete the McAfee, but it's not an option in the Add/Remove Program on the Control Panel. I searched for any McAfee folders and files, and I found it buried in C:\WINDOWS\MCBIN\AV\RT\MGAVRTCL.EXE. I looked in this folder and found several portions of the McAfee program in the RT folder, none of which give me the option to delete the entire program.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I would appreciate any assistance.
