    My dads computer was infected with this last week. I thought i'd got rid of it, but no such luck

    He rang me tonight saying that it was popping up on most webpages trying to install itself again when you try to close it down. Does this sound like his computers infected with it again and has it also hijacked his browser

    What i'm asking really is how the feck do i get rid on this once and for all. When i ran AVG it got rid of it but the internet browser was still hijacked. Everytime time i tried to set the security setting bar to the middle and then clicked apply i shut down IE and opened it up again the bar had gone back down to the bottom on the cookie settings. Windows defender did something and it seemed to fix it, but i think it back again

    Thanks in advance

    Running smitfraudfix, then combofix and going through add/remove programs should almost clean everything. Then install/update AV and do a full scan. There was no infected computer I could not clean if I had internet access when I was cleaning systems.

    For some really tough trojans/viruses you need to use autoruns and process explorer and the windows cacls command to deny access to them and so that your AV can remove them.

    for example in windows XP:

    cacls c:\wndows\virus name.exe /p guest:n

    Would make it so that the virus does not load the next time windows reboots because the user won't have rights to load the file. Then the AV can detect and delete the file. But you need the name and location of the infected file for this which can be found by using Autoruns and process explorer.

    Process explorer will show you all running processes including viruses. You can kill the process and simply delete the infected file this way. Autoruns is used to uncheck the trojans/viruses so that windows does not load them on the next reboot and scanners like Smitfraudfix and Combofix will scan, detect and delete infections. Much more effective than Antivirus software. You want to run these 2 before the AV. Also remove as much as you can from add/remove programs.

    It's probably coming back through a dll somewhere... most likely one with a generated name.
    You could give SuperAntiSpyware a go; I've found it very smart in the past.
