    Hi i have windows ME, IE 6, i do not allow cookies and i put the highest ie security levels. i have many spyware & adware killers + anti-virus.. heres a list of what i have:

    - www.sophos.com anti-virus
    - The Cleaner 1.9d (detects trojans)
    - SpyBot Search & Destroy 1.2
    - SpyWare Guard
    - Bazooka adware & spyware scanner (found at kephyr.com)
    - RapidBlaster killer 1.3

    none of the programs.. except Bazooka adware & spyware scanner detected RapidBlaster. then i searched on google how to find it and remove it. RapidBlaster killer doesnt detect or kill it.. so i tried to find it manualy.. and i found it once.. under Program Files/Spybott/spybott.exe i pressed the keys ctrl-atl-delete and stopped it, then deleted it from the add/remove program tool in the control panel.. then i deleted completly the /spybott/spybott.exe .... i restarted my computer.. and what i found??!!! YES IT WAS STILL THERE under an new name nvd32.exe!!! and once again, bazooka scanner was the only one to detect it.. and rapidblasterkiller wouldnt detect or remove it!! so now, i did the same thing i did with the spybott.exe.. deleted it.. everything.

    now im about to restart my computer. i hope it wont be there.. (ill let you know with a reply to this msg if it has been completly removed and not morphed into something else)..

    PLEASE HELP ME! :oops:
    in one week i found so many things on my computer its awful!!!! ive had the W32/Parite.B virus and after formating it was still there, so i searched on the net and did everything to remove it *gosh it took so long*.. now its finally gone!! BUT NOW ITS RAPIDBLASTER ATTACK! GRR!! ive seen livegirls program magicaly installed on my desktop... i removed it.. i guess it was related to rapidblaster too....

    i dont know what to do next... i want to protect my computer the best i can.. i check for updates all the time, i delete the history and cookies, i put a username & password for windows... everything. i cant think of anything else to do... o_O i dont even visit porn sites or other shitty sites like that!! whats wrong?!

    this sounds desperate.. well, its because i am! :'( im just a 19years old girl who wants to use the internet and have fun... :doubt:

    thanks in advance xoxoxoxoox

    It's quite possible that you managed to catch a new variant of RapidBlaster.

    You wouldn't by any chance still have the file saved somewhere, would you? (I'm guessing not, but it can't hurt to ask.)

    I'll keep looking around the net to see if I can find any new variants that RapidBlaster Killer might not detect. :)

    Thanks for the detailed report!

    EDIT: BTW, SpywareBlaster would have probably prevented the installation of RapidBlaster. It's free, just like SpywareGuard, and you really don't have complete protection unless you have both: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html Enjoy!

    unfortunatly no.. i didn't save it anywhere.. i was too scared it would come back or something. :mad:

    ohhh i do have spyware blaster.. i forgot to mention it. i also have another thing called x-cleaner (by xblock.com)

    i hope i don't catch this new rapidblaster variant again. :(

    stupid spy/adwares... ahh the technology.. so cool, yet so frustrating sometimes.
