I've got a spyware virus, probably Winshow K Trojan. Can someone help me to remove it. I have run CWShredder, Hijack This, EZ Antivirus, and Ad Aware, and that cleans it until I restart, then it comes back...Here is latest IE URL line I am getting:

res://aipvb.dll/index.html#37049

Here is my latest Hijack This scan log:

Go here for an on-line scan & set it to autoclean for you.

Try this scan as well.

Download CWShredder from here & run it. Select the fix button & it will get rid of everything related to CoolWebSearch that is stored in it's database. Close ALL windows, including Iinternet Explorer, before running CWShredder. Reboot.

To help prevent this from happening again, install the patches for the vulnerabilities that this hijacker exploits by going here for your critical updates.

Please go here for Wintools removal instructions.

Reboot after doing this & post another log please.

Thanks Crunchie...turns out the WSAUPDATER.exe file in my log was the culprit. Once I removed that file, everything cleaned up and stayed clean.

Thanks again,
Bob
