    sorry for the vague description, more details below

    OS - WinXP SP2 (considering linux)
    Norton (free with isp)
    windows defender

    recognised symptoms - programs take longer to start up/close and msn either displays a IE script error and i always click no when asked if i want to allow it to continue running (without IE opened)

    thats pretty much it, i also spotted that some variants of it affect the world of warcraft launcher leading me to believe its a keylogger that targets warcraft aswell as msn

    Hi :

    Based on 2 Threads on the Wilders Security Forums, it is difficult to tell IF you
    have an actual "infection", based on you not using Better Security programs .
    The knowledgeable people on those Forums recommend using the FREE Version
    of "SUPERAntiSpyware" from www.superantispyware.com, considered One of the
    Best nowadays . The Free Version should not cause any problems with your
    current security programs . After installing it, Update it, then run a "Full Scan" .
    Another program recommended on the Wilders Forums was to use the little
    known "Haxfix" program, downloaded from
    http://users.telenet.be/marcvn/tools/haxfix.exe .
    AND since there MAY be a "rootkit" involved, I recommend you use the FREE
    "Rootkit Revealer" from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897445.aspx . This program will reveal the possibility of a
    rootkit, though it will NOT remove any, but would give very good INFO as to the
    "Name" IF any exists .
