"Antispy Storm" infection - logs within

  1. Hi,

    I came across your extremely helpful website while Googling my problems out of desperation. Since nothing else seems to have worked, I followed the instructions in the preliminary removal thread.

    I've been infected by some tenacious adware that changes my desktop to a big red warning saying that a spyware threat has been detected on my computer. System tray popups (filled with poor grammar and spelling) tell me that I need antivirus protection. When clicked, they go to pcsecuritylabs.com (or something like that), which advertises some dubious product called Antispy Storm.

    AVG Anti-Rootkit turned up nothing.

    My logs are enclosed. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is absolutely riddled with malware, so much so, I suggest cleaning will be of little use.

    I therefore recommend you backup your important data and reformat your system.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    :( I was afraid of that. Oh well, thanks for the advice.
