Greetings, Help. My computer is afflicted with spyware, and despite the best efforts of many programs I cannot get rid of it. The first thing that hit me was a Backdoor.Jeem, followed by Trojan.ByteVerify, MHTMLRedir.Exploit, and Downloader.Trojan. A HOMEOldSP keeps popping up in my registry, and a number of "CoolWebSearch" and Browser Hijackers keep getting added to my registry. I keep killing them with Spy Sweeper and AdAware. My web browser continually tries to reset the homepage/default page to "home:about" a I suspect bogus search engine page. If I am connected to the Internet when this page is there, eventually it tries to browse some odd IP number server (to download more spyware junk? Probably...). Also, when I have my e-mail program open (Eudora Pro) I occassionally get some strange html pop-up that I cannot Alt-F4; it seems to finish doing something before it disappears. It seems to recur with a certain timing or frequency. I suspect there is something on my system controlling all these things, but this is way beyond me... I hope I don`t have to reinstall XP. I wonder if the spyware has established a hidden user profile somehow with full admin rights, and if my web browser (IE) and e-mail program are now compromised. There was a time before I ran Spy Sweeper that I would see a flash of that stupid "home:about" web page just before the User Accounts menu window opened - that has now stopped, so I assume what was causing it is gone. I haven`t passworded my own Windows logon profile because doing so now might simply pass that password on to whatever hacker or network of hackers is responsible for this crap. In the past I have been told also that passwording is simply something that makes your system stand out a little further to hackers - you must have something of value to do so. A friend of mine gave me the additional anti-spyware programs which have helped stave off any further infection thus far, and he gave me the link to this site. I even hate risking Internet connect time with this stuff lurking around. I hope you can help me. I have downloaded the programs (already had AdAware) as you directed on your forum site and shall post the log results in my next post. Thank you for even having a place like this to turn to. P.S.: Forgot to mention that my browser security settings (IE) were turned completely down by this spyware - I fixed that right away and it has stayed fixed since.
