    SecThought.E pops up at least 10 times a day. I use Adaware to "remove" it but it doesn't seem to help at all.

    That's a pretty clean log; where does your antivirus say the infected files are located? In your System Volume Information Folder (System Restore)?
    If so, it's because your Restore folder is protected, and Antivirus software is unable to modify its contents.
    You'll need to flush that folder:

    1. On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
    2. Click Properties.
    3. Click the System Restore tab.
    4. Check Turn off System Restore.
    5. Click Apply, and then click OK.
    6. Restart the computer.

    All data, including your virus, will be purged from the restore folder.

    7. Run your antivirus once more.

    After rebooting, re-enable System Restore.

    Tell us how that goes.


    Good luck,

    I believe it says it's in c:\documents and settings\administrator\local settings\temporary internet files... And I'm going to sound stupid, but when I go into my control panel and click on system, there isn't a properties or system restore tab.

    Whoops, my bad, you're running Win 2000 > no System Restore!

    The file was reported in your Temporary Internet Files folder, and your antivirus apparently did its job: it alerted you, and prevented you from getting infected.

    There's nothing else you can do, except for avoinding sites where you have a chance of getting malware like SecThought foisted on you....

    As I said, your log is virtually clean; close all browser windows, go to Control Panel > Internet > Temp. Internet Files section, and hit 'delete files'.

    Just make sure you keep your antivirus updated!

    Happy surfing. :)
