Antispyware Soft Reinstalls itself?

Post by jegross2 on Tue Apr 27, 2010 5:53 pm

Hey guys, I have a question.

I followed the instructions for removal of the "Antispyware Soft" trojan and it worked for a few hours, but then the program seemed to reinstall itself. I'm not sure where the trojan came from, but I'm sure I did not go back to any site from which it may have embedded itself in my computer. Is this common? are there additional steps which must be taken? I deleted the "avsoft" associations in my computer's registry. What else can I do to get rid of this thing permanently?

PS, anyone interested in filing a class action suit against the website of this company for false advertising, spam, malicious activities, fraud, etc? I'm fairly certain their activities are illegal.

Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by OldTimer to your Desktop.

  • Close all windows and double click OTL.exe
  • Click Run Scan and let the program run uninterrupted
  • It will produce two logs for you, one will pop up - OTL.txt, the other will be saved on your Desktop - Extras.txt. Post both logs in this thread.
  • You may need to use two posts to get it all.
