I wasn't quite sure where to put this. It involves AOL Instant Messanger but it may or may not involve other software as well. Recently I believe I contracted a virus. "msmsgs.exe" which is related to MSN Instant Messager kept draining 99% of CPU Useage. So I uninstalled Windows Messanger, MSN Messanger, and deleted msmsgs.exe. That seemed to fix the problem, but about an hour later aim.exe started exhibiting the same behavior, draining 99% of CPU useage.

At this point I decided I probably have a virus/worm/trojan. I disabled System Recovery and deleted previous restore points, then ran Norton in Safe Mode. It picked up 5 things, I got rid of them. Then I deleted the registry keys in Windows>Run on regedit that reffered to them. Then just to be safe I ran SpyBot, AdAware and the virus scanner at www.antivirus.com. SO all of that seemed to fix the problem, or so I thought.

Now when I sign on to AIM and send an IM, AIM freezes for about 5 seconds and then the IM goes through. I've tried completely uninstalling it and reinstalling it, as well as installing older versions and all yield the same result, that 5 second freeze.

SO any help on what's happening or what I can do to fix it would be much appreciated. I've done everything within my knowledge to attempt to fix this. All of this is taking place on Windows XP btw.

All the web accelerator, eanthology, webscan, etc... software should be removed through their Add/Remove programs components if present.

http://216.239.57.104/search?q=cach...pSign.asp+DEFSCA~1.EXE&hl=en&start=7&ie=UTF-8

What remains should be checked and deleted using HijackThis, the system rebooted and their program files folders deleted.

Then if this item remains in the Scanlog, you should use "lspfix" to move it to the "remove window" (checking "I know what I am doing") and then select "finish".

Items which I would not want to see in a Scanlog:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [eanth_critical_update_alert] C:\PROGRA~1\ACCELE~1\SYSTEM~1\sys_alert.exe /Startup
