General discussion


I have tried all day to get rid of several spyware/trojans that are on my daughters computer. They are the elite tool bar, IBIS, e2 something. I have used 5 different spyware scanners that say they remove them and they are right back. Also have something that is disabling my nortons auto on. Is there a spyware program that will take care of all this or better at this point to take to a professional? Frustrated as hell.

Hi Sewwolf

I went to that site earlier that's how I found out what I had I printed out directions on how to manually remove but part of it didn't print. Burnt out a little with this as I've been working on this the last 6 hours nice way to spend a Friday nite...not. I've never fooled with the registery before but I guess have nothing to lose next stop is a computer shop anyway. I'm sure I will come back with questions. This computer is also networked to two others in the house another reason this really concerns me but all they share is an wireless internet connection. Thanks again for your help

post back with the EXACT locations

there are programs that will eliminate but 'e2 something' is so vague you could be spinning your wheels for a long time.

1. re- scan.

2 write down the EXACT location of the file i.e. c:\windows\file folder\file name

3. post back.

Well I dealing with three things, E2give, Prutect, a security disable that concerns me the most. Search miracle.elit bar. But the locations of all of these are too much to type. Now the Prutect has it's own folder in the regeristy can I just delete it and reboot? I called around town and pretty much got the answer to do a clean install of XP which of curse they want to charge me a fortune for but I could stumble through myself. Which I wouldn't mind doing this except my daughter has about 1,000 songs on itunes this computer that I or her don't want to sit and add back. But if there is no other way.
