    Malevolent software has deposited an application on my pc which installs an icon on my desktop which if clicked leads to:

    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" http://www.casinopalazzo.com/index.php?sourceid=100513

    It has also created a new dial-up connection "Axis" which I have deleted.

    I am unable to uninstall the desktop icon - I have tried the latest versions of Ad Aware, Spybot, CWShredder and Norton. My home page is behaving normally because - I believe - I had locked my browser with Hijack Blaster before being infected.

    I am desperate to avoid an hdd reformat and fresh OS install and would be very grateful for advice on what to do. Lots of people seem to have a problem with this wretched software.

    Hijack This gives me the following log report -

    Didn't get any replies to my post from the forum but for what its worth the only way I managed to get round the problem was to restore back (on XP Professional) to a date well before I got infected. When I did this the desktop icon had gone but the "Axis" dialup connection was still there. I then deleted this connection and so far have not had any recurrence of the icon or connection. I sure would like to know how to remove the malware if it happens again though and not have to rely on a system restore...
