    1.) get rid of anything that have to do with AOL.
    2.) try a good and deep scan with a good anti-anything.
    3.) and finally, if i were you, i don't trust that mcafee.

    From the link giving by tw0rld,
    the program i warn you not to use is: "SuperAntiSpyware Home Edition Free Version"
    normally this program will make your things worse once you installed.

    good luck

    Never heard anyone complain about SAS before. I have it installed on my system and I have no problems.

    thanks Dude

    I intended to rerereinstall the whole system again, what step you prefer to do this,
    since I didn't surf any sites after the reinstallation, but still get infected !!

    How did that happen? Are you sure you reinstalled the the OS or did you just do a repair? The claim that you are making, as far as I know is highly unlikely, unless it is being transfered from a removable media.
    We are gonna try to get rid of the program. Follow the instructions found at the link above. Complete Steps 3, 4, 5, and 7.
    When done post the logs.
