your post is too vague to offer any suggestion.

1. what is the exact name of the infection ?

2. where is it located?

3. how did you determine this.

That particular one is in the temporary internet files. You can delete them by opening IE and on the top of the page, click on tools\options. When that comes up, click on "delete files", when you click that, another box will popup asking if you want to "delete all offline content", Put a checkmark in that box also and click "OK". IF the other three are also in the same place, that should eliminate all of them. Rerun your scans again and hopefully you should be OK. One other thing, you said you use BOTH "have run adaware se and 6"? Ad-Aware SE replaced Ad-Aware 6 many months ago. I'm confused as to you saying that you are using BOTH.

And provided you with a solution.

as you can see, your response to my query has absolutely nothing to do with the Ntuser.dat file.

This forums deals with elimination of infection and therefore the poster needs to be precise and accurate with respect to the information as to where the problem is.

Were this another forum your post would have been either ignored or information given as to how to eliminate Ntuser.dat.

Had you followed you would not be posting further until you re formatted your O/S.
