Spybot S&D - - -

Install Spybot and the DSO Exploit Fix. Start Spybot and select Update, Search For Updates, check the box next to each update and then select Download Updates. Next, select Search and Destroy, Check for problems and after scanning is complete, Fix selected problems. Finally, select Immunize and then the Immunize button to block common Spyware programs from installing.

No single program removes every threat. A multi-prong approach is best. Unfortunately, many companies have chosen to exploit the spyware problem by releasing questionable software. These programs may be ripoffs of existing free programs, produce false positives to entice you to buy the full version, leave actual Spyware installed, or at the very worst even install Spyware. Use the link above to see if you have installed any of these programs on your system. Uninstall any found.

Step Two: Viruses/Trojans

Even the best antispyware programs are only able to remove about 70% of infections. Also, the line between spyware and trojans is getting blurred. You can never be too careful with these, we recommend at least one online scan.

Ewido Security Suite for Windows 2000 and XP only - day trial) -

Ewido has been very effective at helping remove some of the more difficult infections. After installed, there should be a icon for ewido on your desktop. Double-click to run it.

Update ewido: From the main Ewido screen, click on update in the left menu, then click the Start update button.

After the update finishes (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful"), click on the Scanner button in the left menu, then click on the Start button. This scan can take quite a while to run, but if Ewido finds anything it will pop up a notification, so it needs to be monitored. If notified, select clean and check the boxes "Perform action with all infections" and "Create encrypted backup" before clicking on OK.

When the scan finishes, click on Save Report. This will create a text file. Please then paste the contents of the text file, and post it with your HijackThis log.

Trend Housecall -

Even if you do have antivirus software it can be compromised and corrupted by many forms of malware, so an online scan is a good idea.

Run the free online virus scan (tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox).

Here's another free online scan:

AVG - -

If you don't have any antivirus software on your system, or if your subscription to definition updates has lapsed, install AVG's very good free version of antivirus. This comprehensive package includes real-time protection, scheduled scans, automatic definition updates, and email scanning. More free antivirus tools

NOTE: DO NOT install more than one antivirus program. They will conflict, and provide less protection, not more.

TDS-3 - -

One of the best anti-trojan programs available. Free download and updates.

Step Three: Windows Updates

Windows Update - -

An unprotected, unpatched Windows XP installation will get infected within minutes of connecting to the Internet. Because of this, we'll require you to do install critical updates before providing assistance in our forums. If not, we're both just wasting our time.

SP2 NOTE: Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) has terrific security features, and we highly recommend everyone install it, however it should not be installed until your system is free from malware. Installing SP2 with malware present can cause many compatibility problems, or even prevent your computer from restarting. If your system has a malware infection, or if you're unsure, use the SP1a download link above.

Step Four: Reboot - Test
The tools above will completely clear malware from the majority of systems. Test your system to see how it's working.

If you're still having problems, continue to the next step. Otherwise, check out on how to prevent future Spyware/Hijack attacks.
