Not sure what, but it's serious malware

  1. Hi all, this is my first post to TechSpot! I've been visiting the site for a long time trying to pick up tidbits of easy tech fixes and this has been about the best place I could find - keep up the good work!

    I figured I had everything running pretty well on my machine (regularly updating and keeping my AV current) until just yesterday that little shield with the X on it showed up with the "Spyware Infection has Detected !" tooltip. Since then I've tried my hopelessly inadequate Norton AV scan, installed avast and caught about 8 infections (most not serious) and caught about 20 pieces of spyware with AdAware SE.

    It's sad but I guess that's pretty normal - my problem is the shield icon is still there however and my machine is now popup hell with some other bizarre errors. Time to throw in the towel and ask for help. I downloaded HiJackThis and ran it. Here's the log:

    A lot of this stuff I recognize and am relatively comfortable with but the svchost stuff, smss, and tcpipmon I'm especially concerned with. If anyone can spot something else in there and has a recommendation, I would be deeply appreciative.

    Thank you,
