SpyAxe Curse for Beginner

Unread postby KrisK » December 12th, 2005, 8:14 pm

After spending countless hours trying to get rid of Spyaxe, which is primarily manifesting itself now via the continuously displaying balloon message in the system tray and then the Spyaxe icons on my desktop and system tray.

I have tried Norton 2006 NAV, both in normal and safe mode, still comes back.

I have tried Spybot 1.4, both in normal and safe mode, still comes back.

I purchased and installed Spyware Doctor, which will only run is normal mode, but although it finds and says fixed, nothing changes.

Below please find Hijack this log:

Would very much appreciate some help and assistance at your convenience.

Would also ask for instructions as to how the recommended fix should be addressed with my existing software, i.e., 2006 Norton AV, Spyware Doctor, Spybot, etc. Should they be uninstalled, etc.

Thanks for your time.

Since it appears your problem was solved at another forum, I'll have our admins lock this one.

While we appreciate that you very likely posted at multiple forums in order to ensure a response, that only serves to tie up the time of multiple helpers who could be using that time to help someone else who also has problems. Although there are many forums that handle HijackThis logs, there are not so many helpers; most of us help out at several forums.

In addition, the results may not work out so well when you're following different instructions from different helpers. They may suggest different approaches for the same problem, all of which may be good; however, system conflicts may arise if different fixes for the same problem are applied simultaneously.

In the future, for your sake as well as ours, please refrain from requesting help from multiple forums. Choose one, and stick with that one until they've resolved your problem.

This topic is now closed. If you wish it reopened, please send us an email to 'admin at malwareremoval.com' with a link to your thread.
