    I recently was infected with lop.com spyware through msn messenger plus download. Got rid of it via a program from an u.k suggested in this site one one of its older threads and uninstalled msn plus.

    After this, I still had 2 folders with suspicious folder names & programs in my My computer-Documents and settings-Main user-Appllication data Folder.

    They were:

    Bits More - one funk.exe, and

    win frag peak - base road vga.exe
    win frag peak - four live dog tic.exe
    win frag peak - memo mfcd.exe
    win frag peak - mtcbcywo.exe

    Of which onefunk.exe which was in the startup programs was identified as an Omega spyware and removed it by Omega Ripper program.

    Win patrol & Internet explorer anti spyware showed memo mfcd.exe as a start up program and base road vga.exe is in my task schedular. Nothing was showing in my 'Task Schedular' except 'Add new Task'. Any way, I have disabled them both via Win patrol.

    All these progams are escaping Ad-Aware, Spybot, Spyware blaster, Spyware gauard, AVG Anti virus, HighjackThis, IE Anti Spyware and Win Patrol. My operating system is Windows XP.

    I would like help in identifying these as to whether they are legitimate files used by some programs or Spyware and if it is, advise on removing them.

    Thanks in advance.
