    Hi, I got a virus on my PC that shut down my McAfee program and zone alarm and put and ad on my desk top for a spyware removal program. It did several other things that were easier to get rid of as well. I reinstalled McAfee and ZA and they seem fine now as well as got my desk top back. But McAfee keeps telling me I have the New Poly win32 virus which it can't do anything about. The only thing I can tell is going on is my google searches (not any other search engine) always comes up with the same bogus first page of ads. And my PC seems a little slower. As well as McAfee won't stop tell me I have the virus...that's a good thing I know but at this point annoying. Each time it said that a file was corrupted like ahtun.exe I would delete it but when I rebooted it comes up in a new file so I stopped deleting files....D'oh! When I run Hijack This it seems clean other then ( Unknown file in Winsock LSP: c:\windows\system32\flsmngr.dll ) which it won't remove and I can not delete it even in safe mode. I'm at an impasse and could really use some help if there's a kind sole out there just waiting to help me out! :oops:

    In order to remove Flsmngr.dll properly....you are going to have to visit one of the cleaning Forums where-by they will have you post a HighJackThis log....and as part of the cleaning of other items that may be present....they'll probably have you use LSPfix to help with the flsmngr.dll removal.

    You could start by visiting the Gladiator Forums....and follow their posting procedure....Guidelines for Posting in This Forum, READ THIS FIRST PLEASE

    Or follow the portion of the General Cleaning thread you followed earlier concerning....If all the above steps do NOT fix your problem

    "The two bigger forums for HijackThis log processing, (meaning they process more log threads each day than most others) are: SpywareInfo.com and CastleCops.com. Be sure to read their posting policy in the links at their log review forum sections prior to posting"

    Hey

    Since yesterday, McAfee has been popping up whenever I start Internet Explorer saying that I have the New Poly Win32 virus. Located in the temp folder in Local Settings. The infected file name is 'wintib32.exe'.
    McAfee cannot remove this, and even though I delete the folder, it reappears everytime I start IE.
    Also, whenever a website wont load, IE has been redirecting me to Google.
