CONTINUOUS RE-INFECTION

Today I installed Microsoft Beta 1 AniSpyware to help solve some spyware issues. It found many items that Norton, CWShredder, SpyBot, etc could not find much less delete. Unfortunately I need your advice again as to how to finally remove 5 items that manage to keep re-installing themselves. They are:
 
SEP ADWARE; (15 signatures) this seems to be the worst of the 5.
 
Esyndicate (9 signatures)
 
MidAddle
 
SearchExeHijacker
 
IEPlugin
 
Any help/guidance is appreciated. Thanks

Re: CONTINUOUS RE-INFECTION

Start from uninstalling beta software from the production box. Smiley Happy

Then see this:

DD,

After following JameZ advice, post up a HiJackThis log for analysis, and we'll see if any of those are still present in your system log.

Re: CONTINUOUS RE-INFECTION

Was finally able to download HJT. Since I'm such a novice please instruct me on how to post my HJT this log and also how to create its own folder.  As per the instructions I went to my C: drive, Explore, right click an open area in the main pane, New>Folder,Type HJT & enter. Was this correct as after I downloaded HJT it downloaded but a message appeared to move it from a temporary file. How do I do this? Thanks!

DD5a4a,
 
  Download, then unzip to "C:\HJT", the newest version of HiJackThis; version 1.99.0. Now, let's do the following: 
   
  1.  Click "Scan
  2.  Click "Save log
   
  Notepad will pop-up with a copy of your system long, then: 
   
  1.  "Edit | Select all
  2.  "Edit | Copy
   
  Next, let's "Reply" back to this post, then: 
   
  1.  Right-click on the message body. 
  2.  Select "Paste
   
  Then just "Post" the message, and we'll analyze your log shortly, then post back any recommendation(s).
 

 
Mike.
