    I just cleaned up the mess of ad/spyware and other nasties yesterday and now it appears there is something new.

    I use eTrust Firewall and when I click on the programs tab to specify what is allowed access there are two programs listed as werule. I have checked the boxes to not allow access but need some help figuring out what this is and how to get rid of it.

    Product name: werule
    File name: C://WINDOWS/SYSTEM/300D.exe

    Product name: werule
    File name: C://WINDOWS/SYSTEM/DP.exe


    Would I just go in and delete these files or is it more complicated than that?

    Make a folder on your hard drive, like c:\HJT
    Download Hijackthis.
    Unzip the file to the folder on your hard drive.

    Double click on Hihackthis.exe then click on the "Scan" button, then click on "Save Log".

    Copy and paste it back here and someone will be happy to review it.

    Don't make any changes until instructed to do so.

    By what method did you clean this up? Do you have any logs?

    Have you disabled items by msconfig?

    I ran Ad-aware, Spybot and CWShredder. stillearning went over my HJT log and helped me clean that up. I thought I had gotten all of it but for some reason werule is there.

    Search for pup.exe and if you find it delete it.
