Hi Sue,

You need to reset and re-enable your restore points.
You can delete Avenger (thank you Swandog46!) and delete the Erunt.


STEP 1.
======
System Restore for Windows XP
Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)
    Turn off System Restore.
  1. On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the System Restore tab.
  4. Check Turn off System Restore.
  5. Click Apply, and then click OK.
Reboot.

Turn ON System Restore.
  1. On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the System Restore tab.
  4. UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
  5. Click Apply, and then click OK.


STEP 2.
======
DON’T BECOME OVERCONFIDENT WITH ANTIVIRUS APPLICATIONS INSTALLED!!!

http://www.malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtop ... 6ea0b5e8ee
Stay up to date on security patches and be extremely wary of clicking on links and attachments that arrive unbidden in instant messages and e-mail.

"The number one thing the majority of the malicious code we're seeing now does is disable or delete anti-virus and other security software," Dunham said. "In a lot of cases, once the user clicks on that attachment, it's already too late."


Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

    You have the Security system provided through Cox and if it does not automatically update you would need to update the antivirus.

  1. Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperative that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

    Please test your firewall and make sure it is working properly.
    Test Firewall
  2. Visit Microsoft's Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit Windows Updates regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  3. Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.
    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  4. Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.
    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  5. Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

  6. More info on how to prevent malware you can also find here (By Tony Klein)



Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you.

Susan,

I reset the Restore points and will get rid of Erunt and Avenger. Should I hang on to any of the others that I downloaded for this? (I know some of them have a set trial period anyway.)
Here's the list:
Cwshredder
Trojan Hunter
Kaspersky
Deckard’s System Scanner
HijackThis
Regscan
Spy Sweeper
Spybot

Thanks again for all of your help and info.

You can delete the following:
Cwshredder
Deckard’s System Scanner
HijackThis
Regscan

I would keep Spybot

Kapersky was an online scanner so you can delete that if you want. You can always download it again if you want.

The others have trials and you may want to let the trial run out or you may want to uninstall them. Some like to uninstall them and have trial time left so they can download and install them again if needed.
Trojan Hunter
Spy Sweeper
