    Hi;

    I used a couple of scans (Panda and Ad-Aware) to determine the existance of "Real Spy" spyware, but neither program capable of removing- also included a current Hijack scan as well- can someone spot the source of the spyware in the hijack scan, or suggest a method of removing it?

    Many thanks in advance for the assist-
    Webz

    Not a problem :D

    Well you log shows no signs of any problems :confused:

    Lets try this


    Run an online antivirus check from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites

    http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?
    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

    http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
    http://www.anti-trojan.net/en/onlinecheck.aspx



    Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the
    scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or
    make a note of the exact file name and file location so you can delete it yourself.



    Download and install the Micro$oft antispyware BETA from http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx and let it fix anything it finds (when it finds things, please quarantine them rather than delete just in case as it is a beta and occasional False positives happen)

    First press file and check for updates and then run it

    Recent tests suggest that a combination of Adaware & M$AS removes approx 80% of spywares/Adwares, much higher than any other combination

    I'll do it, thanks for the look. BTW, used trendmicro yesterday, but it didn't come-up with anything. This Real Spy is supposed to be a "low level" threat, isn't it?
