    Whats the deal with Security iGuard?

    This has been pissing me off for a while now and Ive done everything I could think of to stop it. This pos anti-spyware program continues to find its way onto my computer, Ive even written a few policies to try to remove the ability to have a file named "Security iGuard.exe" on my comp as well as puttung a phantom program with the same name and drivers...it overwrites them and I cant find out which port its coming in on or the ip of whoever keeps sending it to me. If someone could shed some light on the situation id be eternally gratefull



    (also I cant keep my damned homepage from resetting itself to http://letgohome.com/hp.htm?id=9 )

    Are you sure you've ever successfully removed it? It could just be reinstalling itself either a) on reboot b) when it notices the files are missing. How exactly are your trying to remove it?

    Well you probably ought to run "Hijack This" and post the log so the folks can take a look at it. If you don't have it, download it from: Click here and then post the log.

    And surfing habits might have to change some after you get it cleaned out

    cheers

    Are you sure you've ever successfully removed it? It could just be reinstalling itself either a) on reboot b) when it notices the files are missing. How exactly are your trying to remove it?
    Ive use several methods of deleting it...they are as followes:

    the uninstall integrated with the program itself
    ive simply deleted the files themselve and placed false files in their places
    ive found the file that loads the program on my computer in the first place and deleted it
    Ive locked out the filename in the windows management console
    and with everything ive done, ive deleted its registry keys and even placed false key in there places...
    and im at a loss for what to do *tears out a chunk of hair*

    ...ive also used the "fix problems" key in hijack this(which seems to work for a time then it comes back)

    Until the time when one of the seniors can review your HijackThis log and tell you what to remove, I would suggest trying Ad-Aware SE and Spybot: Search and Destroy. Run both of these from Safe Mode. (I'm assuming you know how to get into Safe Mode. If you don't, try a Google search or ask here.) I'd recommend removing everything they catch. See how that works for ya.

    those look like they are ausing some trouble. Im not the best at hijackthis logs but if it were mine Id start with deleting those. But make sure you keep a nice backup so if something goes wrong youre not hosed.
    Everyone is going to die, I am just as good of a reason as any.
