Welcome Amadeus,

Would you mind copying your post and pasting it into a new topic- makes it easier for people to see and respond.

Thanks.

Hi Frank,

Thank you for the reply.

After downloading and running a dozen spyware programs, one called Dr Web seems to have stopped it. I am certainly not getting the constant Avast warning pop ups. I do now however get Registry error on start up warning me that certain files cannot be found! Was this Dr Web removing something from the Registry?

I would have started a new topic if I could have found where to start one!

Steve.

Oh well. Not to worry.

Had you tried a boot time scan with avast!? This will usually (not always) remove malware which is in use during a normal boot.

See the instructions here:

DrWeb has probably removed the malware files but left the start up commands in the registry as you say.

If you run a scan with HijackThis!, we can remove them.

For future reference, if you go to Viruses and Worms, there's a New Topic button on the right at the top of the postings.

Also for future reference, Ewido and a-Squared (both free scanners) are good at cleaning stubborn Trojans.

Hi again,

Just tried Hijackthis and it worked. Thank you so much.

DrWeb had removed the Trojan but left part of the Registry corupted at C:Windows/inet20001/services.exe. 

Have a good new year and thank you again for being online and helping. I will make a note of the other two sites you suggested for future reference.

Steve.

This seems to have been Krepper-Y.

There may be more registry entries to delete as mentioned in the Sophos article.

Happy new year to you too.
