    1-only download from trusted sites (which is the best method of protection against download infection). However, in this case it also looks like you had give the file permission to run from PG ?

    2-Find out what registry entry the spyware component modification used to infect IE, and block it in Regdefend.

    Does ProcessGuard or Ewido prevent IE browser objects being installed?

    if not already change kav to maximum settings or maybe try a different av, also get an antispyware with resident protection (for example MSAS).

    @MikeNash - afaik, no, unless u tell pg to block the executable that install the BHO. and ewido only scans for malware, but the poster only has the free version.

    Sorry, I just noticed he used regdefend as well, so some modifications to his ruleset could perhaps help to fine tune it.

    checking the registry monitor comparison thread, regdefend monitors teh following key:
    HKCU\SW\MS\Windows\CV\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects
    but doesnt monitor any keys under IE.

    That one (as the name suggests) could well be enough to catch BHO's. I'm sure Regdefend will monitor other useful keys as well.
