Trojan terrible like I have never seen

  1. Ok i have been removing trojans and viruses for years, i consider myself pretty good at it, i use a variety of tools mostly under a pe enviroment. but i have come across the first one today that i cant fix. either its the slickest virus ever or i am being profoundly dumb and missing something staring me in the face.

    nothing in hijackthis that doesnt make sense, full spybot under winpe and full avg under pe and in windows.

    it just keeps giving me popups, porn, indian radios, etc.

    the only thing that might be a clue is that it renamed a bunch of files, adding a space between the filename and the dot. like alot of regular system files like

    smaxpnp4 .exe <- notice the space in all of these
    msmsgs .exe
    sisraid .exe

    etc, etc, now sisraid is not very common, i doubt the virus would target that.but i found every file with a space in the name and deleted it, strangely none of them were important.

    i do have avgcc.exe
    and avgw.exe
    but i believe that is from the new avg network edition i just installed.

    anyweays this is driving me nuts, let me know what you would like to see, there isnt much in hijack log but if you want me to attach it np.

    EDIT: two things, 1, i am attaching hijack this log since of course your gonna want it :)
    and 2) the popups only load in IE, even though firefox is deault web browser as of now. also this system is xp sp1.

    Just a suggestion or two...1) have you tried removal through on-line a 2.) Since you have xp, have you tried going back via system restore to a point before your problem? Of course both of those are pretty elementary, but you did ask if it might be something staring you in the face that you might have to you...

    I have faced alot of them, but it is hard using just one or two tools. Try using the steps the on this thread and led us know how did it go. I know you have some of them but try them especially combofix and antirootkit
