I have been working on this problem for about a week now so I must turn to the masters for guidance- so here is my question/problem: I have a dell inspiron 2650 running xp. It got infected with a virus some how (and I think that it also killed my router but that is another story) and it started strangeling the internet connection, we are on DSL. At the same time the elite toolbar started showing up. so I ran a Spy Bot SD and Symanted Corporate 8.0 to find and kill it, well it found and killed some stuff but not all of it, and after hours of trying, I wiped everything out (I thought) and started anew. I used partition magic and reinstalled everything again, connected to the pluged in the network cable and boom pop ups and the elite toolbar was back. (had installed all of the latest virus updates for Symantec Corporate 9.0 this time as well as SP 1 and updates from the FEB 04 disk. So I went back and tried again. wiped everything clean the same way and reinstalled everything and it came back. So i installed SP2 and spy bot SD as well as Ad-aware SE set symantec to find spyware and scaned all over again. they all found stuff and deleted it. The stuff that could not be deleted I manually deleted, and I followed the instructions on the Symantec website for removal of the toolbar. IT STILL IS THERE, or it keeps hijacking me and taking me to freegay porn.com or something so it can redownload itself. I do not know what to do with this thing. If any of you guys could help I would really appreciate it. Sorry for the long post but it's involved.
