okay... mozilla was down yesterday, so I tried to download some extensions from 3rd party sites. Long story short... I got the istsvc.exe malware. I ran the most recent version of adaware, with updates. Didn't work. Googled it and found symantec's svc fix tool, downloaded that, ran it. Didn't work. Ran Hijack this, deleted svc. Didn't work. Then I booted in safe mode and tried to delete the svc file, and used remove programs to delete it. None of it worked, at all.

I want to remind everyone that I have tried to remove this stuff...it just keeps coming back, so I must be missing something

here is my hjt log:

Okay, Cookiegal.
I downloaded the new version, checked all the startup files in msconfig. Here is my new HJT log. I also downloaded Microsofts Antispyware beta, it detected all the spy and malware, and said it was cleaned but it still comes back. Please let me know what to remove.

Run this tool again:

http://sarc.com/avcenter/venc/data/adware.istbar.html

Rescan with Hijack This, close all browser windows except Hijack This, put a check mark beside these entries and click “fix checked”.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [K1ovV6EQf] C:\WINDOWS\qsxrwn.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IST Service] C:\Program Files\ISTsvc\istsvc.exe

Then boot to safe mode (see how below), locate and delete these files and/or folders:

C:\WINDOWS\qsxrwn.exe - file
C:\Program Files\ISTsvc - folder

How to restart to safe mode:
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...2001052409420406?OpenDocument&src=sec_doc_nam

Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start - Search and under "More advanced search options". Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

Next click on My Computer. Go to Tools - Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types". Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

Reboot and post another log please.
