Spysweeper, Symantec AV 2005, Spybot, Ccleaner, Ewido
I've been attempting to clean one of the bosses personal computers of tons of adware/spyware/trojans. It's never had any windows updates posted since new (I think) and was infested with one of everything. I got it because it started locking up on him every 20 minutes. I also think they clicked on and installed every bogus adblocker, spyware blocker, pop-up blocker that popped up on their browser (and you know what that results in...)
The computer has Spysweeper installed and everytime I start up the machine a screen pops up listing unknown startup programs. When I click on the details link to the right of each one, it comes up with 'unknown' for these two programs:
Never having used Spysweeper I'd like to know what it's trying to tell me and also how to respond. I tried googling the filenames and got nothing, which sets off alarm bells right there.
Neither filename shows up as a startup item in MSCONFIG. Nor do the files show up in the file list in Windows Explorer.
Any suggestions or pointers? I'd be very grateful.
