Ugh someone help with this bugger. I have the PC really clean and this is the last reminent that needs to be taken out.

Upon bootup or opening any file that access the internet I.E. Ad-Aware for internet update, I.E. for web browsing, or anything. I get a NAV popup for PWSteal.Banker.B it shows the file as C:\windows\system32\ntfs32.dll and it can't clean or delete the file. I have gone in as admin, I have done safe mode. Nothing seems to let me get rid of the bugger. I did a search on ntfs32.dll and didn't come back with much. I looked up on Syantecs website about PWSteal.Banker.B but the registry items it says it creates are not in my registry and the symptoms do not look the same.

Please help!

N/M I solved it myself. I had ran about 4 different scanners but had not ran HijackThis. Upon running it there were over 200 entries that were C:\windows and 3 letters and C:\windows\system\ and three letters. Once I got rid of all of those and rebooted then NAV was able to remove and quarantine the original problem file itself.
