    Tried the latest McAfee, Norton, Adaware, and Spybot, but the thing is still there. I get a Recycler and a System Volume Information folder every time. ThE system Volume Information folder will partially delete and then give me a sharing error. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here is the Hijack This log.

    Hi NyahLevi

    Welcome to TSG! :)

    Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close ALL windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

    Restart to safe mode.

    How to start your computer in safe mode

    Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start > Search and under "More advanced search options".
    Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

    Next click on My Computer. Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    I safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Next navigate to the C:\Documents and Settings\(our name here)Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK. Now click the "Delete Cookies" button and click OK.


    Empty the Recycle Bin and purge all "Nortun Protected Files"


    Turn off System Restore:

    On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
    Click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Check Turn off System Restore.
    Click Apply, and then click OK.
    Restart your computer.

    When you are sure you are clean turn it back on and create a restore point.


    Go here and do an online virus scan:

    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

    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 file location so you can delete it yourself.

    Thanks muchly for your response. I did as you suggested and then ran the virus checked and it found nothing, but I'm not sure that the problem is over. There was still the recycler and system volume information folders on each partion. The command line in xp allowed me to remove the recycler folders, but nothing will touch the system volume information folders. I even tried a third party deleter with no luck. The folders are supposed to be empty, but I can't help worrying. If you have any ideas, please respond.

    When you turned off System Restore, you cleared all restore points, thus eliminating the infected files there. You should be good to go now.
