    Just today I began having trouble with my spyware removal programs. They close randomly, no warning, no problem.... just gone. I've heard this is related to Klez, but I ran the removal tool from Symantec and it found nothing. This is a really pissy problem for me, due to the fact that I have had MANY virus-related problems in the past week. My HiJackThis log (which I barely had time to save) is on my other post "Backdoor.Agent.BA" Please help me out, this is really starting to bother me

    Thanks
    The Jew

    All kinds of malware could be responsible for this.

    I suggest you proceed as follows:

    First, run an online virus scan at Panda Active Scan

    Next, go to http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/~merijn/downloads.html , and download Hijack This.
    Unzip to a folder other than your Desktop or the Temp folder, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".
    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please show us its contents.
    Most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

    Hi The_Jewish_Jew855,

    Since you have posted a hijackthis log here:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=39000

    I will lock this thread now so we don't have duplicate threads going for the same problem. ;)

    Please follow Tony's advice and get an on-line scan first, then post a new log in your current thread (see link in this post).

    Regards,

    snap
