offensive executable file

By boudhn2 ·
I have a pop up that intalls its executable file on the sytem tray, the desktop, the program file and worst, even worst inside my pc file system every time I try to open any other web page. After every session I delete this executable file in all these locations, the cookies, the internet temporary files, the applications'logs. I even, thinking it might be a virus, did several virus scans, but nothing worked. This pop up is giving me headaches! Help!

I would look for its registry entry. Hit the start button, go to "RUN" and type in REGEDIT
navigate to HKEY local machine/software/microsoft/windows/current version/run. highlight the run entry and some information will appear in the right pane. Look through the list for this offending entry. Note the path to the .exe delete this entry, go through windows explorer to the path noted above and delete the entry there as well.
Good luck!

Mike

ps. if you are not comfortable being in the registry, find someone who is. Do a backup of it first.
