4.7 ball continuously running - 24 hours
« on: December 14, 2006, 07:12:22 PM »
I read the previous posts on this and found that a web site (fepm.galleriez.com/SexKittens.html) is constantly making it run. I've never been there...

How do I stop this? I've run adaware & spybot, deleted all cookies & temp internet files... what next?

Thanks in advance.

What is your Operating System ?
What avast! version and VPS file (virus database) number, e.g. 0630-2 (see about avast!) ?

If you haven't already got this software (freeware), download, install, update and run it, preferably in safe mode.

Blocking the site only masks the symptom and doesn't treat the disease, but it gives you some breathing space to track it down and kill it.

So what else can I do? Both my adaware & spybot are updated, and so is Avast.

And thanks for the welcome. :)

Have you tried one of the other programs DavidR suggested?  They are both very good, and both free.

If a virus is replicant (coming and coming again), you should:

1) Disable System Restore on Windows XP: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;%5BLN%5D;310405
2) Clean your temporary files.
3) Schedule a boot time scanning with avast. Start avast! > Right click the skin > Schedule a boot-time scanning. Select for scanning archives. Boot.
4) Download, install, update and run other trojan remover tools:
a-squared
Free AVG Antispyware
SUPERantispyware
Spyware Terminator
