System Tray Spyware Icon

  1. I seem to be having some trouble removing some spyware. I followed the directions posted on spyware removal and it seems that Combofix will fix the problem until I reboot the computer. I also cannot get rid of a pop up window that says "Windows Security Alert! Potential spyware problem...". I have attached a HJT log as per the directions. I have logs from the other various removal programs if you need those uploaded. Thanks for you help.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is infected with a variety of malware.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
