    AAAAAAARRRHHHHH...PLEASE HELP!!! :eek:

    It seems as though my systems been infected by
    this Trojan.

    I've ran the latest CWShredder (V. 1.56.1) and my
    homepage still goes to about:blank every time
    I boot up. So, I checked my registry via HiJack This
    and the dll's are still in there!

    Isin't CWShredder suppose to remove infected
    registry values? Isin't that how it works?

    I'm using Windows XP (home ed.) with Spybot S&D
    and SpywareBlaster but yet this Trojan still seems
    to slip through!

    I'm not a "computer guy" by any means and what
    I've learned about this problem is a result of 3 days
    of intensive Net searching. Any advice ya'll can give
    would greatly be appreciated!

    Thanks! :)

    It sounds as though this guy is having the same problems as me:

    CWShredder V. 1.56.1 doesn't work for this latest variant,
    however the powers that be look like they know about it
    and are trying to correct the problem.
