Look2Me spyware (msg118.dll)
i ran across a machine that had this on it, it was picked up by adaware and spybot but could not be removed....i did some research and none of the solutions worked
two solutions tried were the follwoing programs
Killmsg118.exe and Killmsg117.exe, both were supposed to work by removing the file on restart. neither work.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Read here : http://www10.brinkster.com/expl0iter...st/L2M/L2M.htm for a full explanation on removal. If this doesn't work pst back - there are a few other things that may work.

Do what you did before, just in safemode.
Press f5 at startup. or is it f8? I always forget

you know.. i didn't actually read much of the thread I posted the link to but..
it seems to me that if you unregistered the dll, you could simply rename or delete it.
in a command box.. type.. regsvr32 /u c:\path to msg118.dll
just put in the right path to that file.. you should be able to rename/delete
