    Ad-aware, spybot and spywareblaster are not working on this

    My computer had been hijacked by some spyware virus and it changed the IE settings. It also sent some shortcuts to my desktop. I could change all the settings through the regedit (using tools). But the problem is that the settings will be modified again if I login again. I think there must be some secrect program running with the login process. I checked the startup list and blocked some programs I thought they might be the problems but it did not work. It really drived my crazy. The spyware changed the homepage,searchpage, and put several links in the favorites folder. It also sends the shortcuts of these websites to the desktop. Does anyone have any clues about it. I include the report generated by Spybot here for you review.
    Thanks for your help.

    Please check out this thread, as I believe it contains the answer to you questions.

    From the looks of your startup log it is indeed a CWS problem. Simply download the newest CWShredder from (it's about 1/2 way down the page) and install it, close all browser windows and select "fix". Also read the link that Moxnix pasted.... very relevant.
