    Hello,

    I have a severe virus infection on a newly installed system running Win XP Pro + SP1, no firewall, no virus shield. Unfortunately, I connected to the Web and within an hour, I was infected w/ something called Power Scan which started up on reboot, as well as IE IST toolbar, WebRebates, Internet Optimizer, 180 something (don't remember). It came to the point where the system went into 100% CPU utilization upon bootup and was unresponsive (hourclock cursor). I entered into the system via Safe Mode, removed what I can from Add/Remove Software, removed entries in WINDOWS\System32\ called tommynub which retrieved something called salm.exe, and ran HJT and fixed some of the stuff that I saw. However, THEY KEEP COMING BACK!!! For example, in the log below, I had HJT remove mcafee32.exe as well as other O4 items, but they reappear (I don't have mcafee32.exe installed).

    ANY HELP WILL BE MOST APPRECIATED.

    I learned a lesson though -- don't ever run w/o a firewall/virus shield.

    Thanks --

    Todd
