Computer got possessed yesterday-just about locked up completely. The really bad stuff even turned off my Spy Sweeper shields. Anyway, cleaned things up alot (thanks for all the info) but still had begin2 search. Followed your instructions for removal but my Adaware download wouldn'r run (kept saying missing or corrupt file and would abort setup) So I used Spysweeper instead. After running HJT I did fix some obvious bad files but was afraid to check too many things. Anyway the begin2search toolbar is gone but computer still not right. Went back and ran the 3 antispy programs again in safe mode and spysweeper picked up begin2search again. Anyway here is my hjt log after second decontamination. I didn't check anything or fix anything from this yet. Also, wasn't sure about a few things in your instructions. Delete fixed files in hjt and delete bold directories? Didn't know how. As you can tell I know nothing about computers. Also I did download windows xp updates after I thought computer was clear, but I guess it wasn't. Does this matter?
