    Please help......my XP OS is infected with the Realtime Spy keylogger. Once the .exe was launched it disabled my Ad-Aware SE and Spybot S&D anti-spywares. I searched the Task Manager for Realtime Spy associated files but found none. Alsdo tried a system restore but that did not help. I am getting a dial up/connection pop up also that began after the .exe was run. Iassume that belongs to RSS too. Thinking now I must dump my OS and re-install it. Can I get this keylogger off my system without re-installing the XP OS and starting over? Any info or help would be greatly appreciated......

    Hi and welcome to TSG,

    Please do this. Click here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html to download Hijack This.

    It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

    Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

    DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed.
