Hello, everyone. After running Spybot, Ad-Aware, Norton Anti-Virus Corporate Edition, The Cleaner, and other anti-virus program, a virus keeps coming back on my computer. I've updated all my anti-virus software, but the ads keep coming, loading links and programs (mostly toolbars like Lycos SideSearch, Hotbar, SuperBar, and Wubar) into Internet Explorer and on my desktop. I've followed a great deal of instruction from members of this board, but it keeps coming back. I have posted my Hijack This! log below, so hopefully someone can figure it out. I do not know the name of this virus/trojan/worm, so I cannot pinpoint it down and find info. on it elsewhere. This morning when turning on my computer, There were over eight new icons on my desktop, most of which seemed to be from the same company. Titles like "casino online", "travel", and "card games" were beneath the icons, and I believe the host name (according to ad-aware) was Wubar or something fo the sort. To anyone who can help figure out how to get rid of this pest, please let me know. Thank you.

In Hijack This, check ALL of the following items. Double check so as to be sure not to miss a single one.
Next, close all browser Windows, and have HT fix all checked.

Reboot into normal mode.

Before you re-enable system restore I would strongly recommend that you do an online virus scan at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites:

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

RE-ENABLE SYSTEM RESTORE and create a NEW restore point


Now download Spybot - Search & Destroy (if you haven't got the program installed already)

After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

Next, close all Internet Explorer windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove/fix all it finds that are in RED

Reboot

Last, run HJT again and post your log again to see if anything was missed.

Thanks

it's not usual to have O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SystemTray] SysTray.Exe
showing in the logs in XP so this could be the trojan
there are several viruse that drop systray.exe into the windows directory,

I think to eliminate this possibility we need a complete start up list
so open Hijackthis/config/misctools/tick both boxes about empty & minor sections and press generate start up list, then post that log in your next post please
