Hi, hope someone can help. I'm really struggling to get rid of the Hotxxx pop up dialer that a lot of people seem to be infected with right now. Problem is, it doesn't seem to be exactly the same trojan as the others described on this forum (Hotkiss, for example). It calls itself Nasty Sex, or sometimes Adult_Play, but usually just HotXXX. It pops up, installs itself as XXXServer, and tries to connect me to a premium rate number (5551212) and a little symbol appears in the system tray (a tiny image of flames with the word HOT underneath). Then, when I uninstall it and reconnect to my normal isp, my homepage is changed to www.pureseeker.com. I've tried everything to get rid of it: scanning with Adaware, Hijackthis, CWShredder, Avast!, Spybot, etc, but nothing seems to detect it or get rid of it. It keeps coming back and trying to disconnect me every five minutes. I've also searched for the usual rogue files (uk3.exe, uk5.exe, uk7.exe, 1on1.exe) but none of them exist. I guess the files on my computer must be called something else. If anyone has any further advice on how to get rid of this thing, I would appreciate it THIS much. THIIIS much. Which is very much indeed. Thanks. PS. I couldn't get Adaware to finish a single scan because it kept freezing while it was scanning C:\WINDOWS\system32. Is there any reason why it might be doing this (ie, is the trojan in there?) or is there any way I can manage to make Adaware scan system32 without freezing halfway through?
