I have a virus that is called adware.look2me. I have ran norton virus umpteen times. It is up to date and newly installed. I have tried everything. I have spybot and ad-aware 6.0. It seems people tell me to download that usually, but I already have it.

Thanks so much for any help you can give, Tammy

Also, I have went and tried to delete the file. It say's "Cannot delete artiveds.cpy:Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use."

Thanks again, Tammy

you need one of the experts to look at the log
i gather all the 016 items are games you have d/l
i cannot see the item you are worried about in the log.it is probaly in system restore.
turn off system restore and turn it back on again to clean it out.
reboot and run your virus checker and see if it still picks it up after cleaning restore

Does NAV show where it's located? Could be in XP's backup file. Try clearing your restore point points:


I have tried restoring and everything. I'm about to go crazy. The file is located at C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\artiveds.cpy.dll. The virus is called adware.Look2Me. When I go in and try to delete artiveds.cpy.dll, it gives me the following message: "Cannot delete artiveds.cpy: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use." I still need help! :(

Thanks, Tammy

How do I Remove Look2Me?

Because the software highly integrates itself with Explorer, it can be hard to remove. Included below is a basic manual removal method for Look2Me as well as an excellent Visual Basic Script that can be run to help remove it.

Follow the instructions below to remove Look2Me

Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and click Ok to start the Registry Editor

Now open the Windows Task Manager

On Windows 95/98/ME, Press CTRL+ATL+DEL
On Windows NT/2000/XP, Press CTRL+ALT+DEL, Select the Task Manager if needed, and click on the Processes tab

In the list of programs, click on EXPLORER.EXE and select End Task or End Process. Repeat this procedure until no explorer.exe process is running (The Start Menu, Task Bar, and System Tray will disappear)

Select the Registry Editor (you may have to press ALT + Tab)

Delete the following registry keys if they exist

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{DDFFA75A-E81D-4454-89FC-B9FD0631E726}

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ ShellExtensions \ Approved \ {DDFFA75A-E81D-4454-89FC-B9FD0631E726}

Close the Registry Editor

Restart your computer

Now open My Computer and Drive C, open the Windows directory, and then the System directory
Note: %SystemDir% is a variable. By default, this is C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me), C:\WINNT\System32 (Windows NT/2000), or C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP).

Delete all files that look similar to the following, where * represents a letter or number

msg{********-****-****-****-************}****.dll

Open Internet Explorer

Click Tools, Internet Options

Click the Programs tab and then click Reset Web Settings to restore default settings for home page, search page, and other settings.

For Automatic Removal of Look2Me (option 1)

Download and run the program Killbox created by Option^Explicit Software Solutions.
or
Download and run the program Kill2Me from Merijn.
http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html
For Automatic Removal of Look2Me (option 2)

Download the following Visual Basic script provided by Mosaic1, a member of Spywareinfo, and save it to c:\removel2me.vbs

Look2Me Removal Program

This is a Visual Basic Scripting file, so you'll have to have the Windows Scripting Host installed. You can download the following file to disable or reenable the Windows Scripting Host.

noscript.exe

Now open the Windows Task Manager

On Windows 95/98/ME, Press CTRL+ATL+DEL
On Windows NT/2000/XP, Press CTRL+ALT+DEL, Select the Task Manager if needed, and click on the Processes tab

In the list of programs, click on EXPLORER.EXE and select End Task or End Process. Repeat this procedure until no explorer.exe process is running (The Start Menu, Task Bar, and System Tray will disappear)

Click the Applications tab, click the New Task Button, and type the path to the script you saved.

c:\removel2me.vbs

Click Ok

Click Shutdown on the Task Manager toolbar and scroll down to Restart your computer.

Cai was right in his analysis that it may be left over in the system volume folder so turning off system restore along with emptying the virus quarantine folder then rebooting should take care of it..Then re-enable the restore feature after rebooting.
