    Angry User's Computer infected

    Can somebody shed any light on a major problem I have. I have a Windows XP machine with SP1 installed. The problem is some idiot had been looking at a porn site and somehow managed to infect the machine with two viruses and a load of spyware (The User hadn't locked his pc). One virus is called Win32: Startpage -006. I have tried cleaning the machine with the following programs.

    Old version of Sophos Anti-Virus was installed I removed this.
    Webroot Spy Sweeper
    Avast Cleaner 1.0.3 and Avast 4 Home Edition
    Lavasoft Ad-aware 6
    and below HJT

    The problem I have, is that I thought I had eradicated all the crap i.e. the viruses and spyware. I performed a virus cleanup and spy sweep through safe mode and I thought everything was clean. However once I rebooted the computer the registry was infected again and the programs and pop came flooding back. I have disconnected the computer from the internet to prevent further infection or remote control.

    There seems to be a program called Winad that keeps reappearing. I was told to check the registry and fine 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Classes \ CLSID \ and keys that exist within this structure I should delete. The CLSID folder does not exist. I have been deleting all entries that I fine suspicious however once I reboot or run hjt again they have regenerated.

    I would appreciate any advice that may help remove this crap, could any one identify the correct name of the virus I mentioned as this would help me remove it. Alternatively does any one know what registry keys I need to remove or I should check?

    Further info I tried connecting to the internet once and i.e. must be infected loads of hc porn popups appeared and windows update failed.

    Thanks in adv

    First: Get Adaware SE and get it updated
    Also Spybot S&D 1.3 and get it updated as well..

    Run each in turn.. clear the crap from each..
    then Re scan with HJT.. check if the following to see if they are still there..(lsit at end of post..)

    Post back the new log before you remove anything else

    Cheers

    I think that your infected with a coolweb search variant that is particularly nasty:

    If you follow the advice given by Groovicus on the link below you should be able to manualy rid your self of this pest. I don't no wether the latest Adaware that undertaker has linked you to can effectivly deal with the problem, i no that the previous version couldn't. If you are still having problems after running Adaware SE go here and follow the instructions to the letter.

    Yep that's definately the nasty CWS. That link will help you clean it up. As for the WinAd - go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall it. Then fix it with HijackThis. After, go delete the file if it's still about. Although, I don't see it in this log.......

    Also, delete this folder as well: C:\WINDOWS\System32\golumm

    But, in order of importance, I would deal with the CWS before trying to kill anything else.

    Good luck!

    I know that it has taken a long time for me to return to this forum, but I would like to thank you all for your help I managed to get rid this cws spyware virus demon last Friday. I tried some new tools that Und3ertak3r and jinxy suggested (Thx alot). I basically ran the computer in safe mode ran search and destroy, webroot spy sweeper and ran the virus check again. Checked Windows XP in normal mode and ran scanners again to confirm that the machine was clean. Also found some new entries in registry refering to WinAD and Golumn service.exe

    Once again I appologies for not let you guys know what happening. Cheers
