I'm a new user and intermediate computer technician trying to rid my friends and myself of a barrage of attacks from facebook,twitter,bebo and myspace based trojans.
I have been for the past 4 days scanning and removing spyware from laptops infected with the Koobface, Drivercure, Errorsmart and Antispyware malwares.
So far I have not managed to reduce the infections enough to stop self-replication and permutations preventing me from removing them completely. Using MalwareBytes I found the most results (178 to be exact) and removed them, then Norton found about 7 - removed, Adaware found about 12 - removed, Spyware Terminator found none and "Exterminate It!" still finds a further 29 but I would have to pay to remove them and still have to go through the registry to remove further entries..(one I have been keeping an eye on in: HKEY_USERS\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Hidden - the value is set to 2) which hasn't changed but I'm uncertain if I should remove it.
Have run Ccleaner and cleaned registry but no difference yet and Driver Cure just now as I'm typing put up a new Icon on the desktop by itself after my having deleted it...
I have run Hijack This and saved a log file which I can send if you have any way you can help me as I've done all I can think of.
Any information or steps would be highly appreciated
