Downloaded and ran Ad-aware vx2 add-on. Ad-aware says it is gone. Spybot finds it, but doesn't fix it, says will try on startup... but is still there. Did Ad-aware fix it, and Spybot is finding remnants??? How do I get rid of it completely. Thanks.

go to here and download 'Hijack This!'. double click on the file and it will self extract to C:\program files\hijackthis.
Go to that folder then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

C:\WINDOWS\ZServ.dll

When it reboots
then Go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box, press OK . The Temp folder will open. Click Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of that Temp folder.

Spybot still finds vx2/f:

VX2/f: Settings (Registry key, nothing done)
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\MxTarget

VX2/f: Settings (Registry key, nothing done)
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\MxTarget

Spybot still will not remove vx2/f... it asks to on reboot... but it's still there.

Can I remove them manually with regedit??

Yes you can do a reg edit and remove those keys
open regedit navigate to HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\
and right click on mxtarget and select delete

I suspect the reason why spybot can't fix them is because they are empty keys with no content and spybot always has problemswith those

Spybot is clean! (y) I think it is good to go.

This is my wife's co-worker's machine... a whole family of XP "administrators". I created one "system admin" for them, and changed their status to "limited".... should help as well. They have been running it without an antivirus program for 1 1/2 years. :eek:

Thank you very much for your help, Derek! (y)
