Spybot Search and Destroy Update History
Safer Networking Malware Removal Forum, run by Team Spybot. Volunteers help you remove infections that keep returning, or that Spybot fails to remove permanently. Requires HijackThis logs to be copied and pasted into your Posts. Read the instructions thoroughly before requesting help!
A consequence of acquiring many of the parasites, keyloggers, hijackers and downloaders is that their files and startup settings are usually saved to your System Restore hidden folder, from whence they are automatically restored upon rebooting the computer. To completely remove these threats, and others, you should disable System Restore, then reboot, then clean all threats, then re-start System Restore, setting a new Restore Point, with a clean machine. Many people overlook this and are constantly reinfected after removing threats. There are few, if any security programs that can clean or remove infected files that are backed up in your protected System Restore directory.
To disable System Restore, go to My Computer and right-click on it's icon. From the flyout options select Properties. From the "System Properties" select the "System Restore" tab. There you will find a checkbox labeled "Turn off System Restore." Check it, then click Apply and wait while the System Restore files are deleted (takes some time). After the deletions are finished, click OK to close the Properties box, then reboot.
When you have thoroughly removed all infections follow the same procedure as above, unchecking the box that turned off System Restore.
