    Thank you…Sooooooooo much for your help! I tried Avira AntiVir, but it didn’t work. Your the best. How do I know what they got off of my computer. They wanted me to buy spyware software. They presented themselves as Microsoft.

    Daughter’s laptop infected with “antivir.com”. Norton did not prevent it or find it with a full scan. I looked at your removal instructions and before I downloaded anything checked the registry at the entry below and that entry is NOT present with the {35A5B43B-CB8A-49CA-A9F4-D3B308D2E3CC} value, though it has 10 other entries with different values. Also, the name ‘Explorer’ is not capitalized but is ‘explorer’.

    It would appear the virus has been amended to use a different value than the one you are familiar with.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{35A5B43B-CB8A-49CA-A9F4-D3B308D2E3CC}

    What Next?
