    I used Ad-aware 6 to scan my computer. Initially I had problems where IE would redirect my homepage and every other url I typed in to the address line to att.net, and it said something about nkvd.us. Now my IE seems to be working okay, but everytime I run the spyware check on my Earthlink TotalAccess software it finds something new.

    Here is the HiJackThis log. Thanks.

    Hi jspelunker,

    Download and run: http://www.memorywatcher.com/uninst.exe
    The program needs internet access to finish.

    Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://nkvd.us (obfuscated)

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,Search = http://nkvd.us (obfuscated)
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,Search = http://nkvd.us (obfuscated)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {C5183ABC-EB6E-4E05-B8C9-500A16B6CF94} - C:\Program Files\SEP\sep.dll

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [U5pzh16M9] C:\documents and settings\jon\local settings\temp\U5pzh16M9.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RZ0pmSijs] C:\documents and settings\jon\local settings\temp\RZ0pmSijs.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [5T9FWJA5K#5SC7] C:\WINDOWS\System32\Zmg4.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Spyware Begone] c:\freescan\freescan.exe -FastScan

    Download and run: CWShredder
    Use the Fix button and follow the instructions you will receive.

    Then reboot into safe mode
    and delete:
    C:\Program Files\SEP <= entire folder

    Then (still in safe mode) use the Disk Cleanup Utility to empty all your Temp folders.

    Post a new log when you are done, so we can see if everything worked out as planned.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I'm stuck on the first step. I've downloaded the Memory Watcher Uninstaller, but when I go to open it, an error window pops up, saying "NSIS ERROR: Error launching installer."

    Suggestions?

    Thanks
