Problem with wintouch.exe - Pop-ups, random shutdowns, etc.

By pacer ·
Hello - I'm having a terrible time with a variety of spyware on my computer, and it seems to be concentrated around a program called wintouch. It continually opens pop-ups in Internet Explorer (which I don't use), it causes random shut-downs of the computer, slows everything down considerably, and seems to be affecting my antivirus and antispyware programs. The various cleanup programs I've run can't remove it. I've tried removing the program in control panel, but it simply opens a DOS screen and a warning that "Virtual Device Driver format in the the registry is invalid". Can anyone help? I'll post the Hijack This log below.

Removing nasty spyware

by Info-Safety, LLC In reply to Problem with wintouch.exe ...

First of all, make sure you have a copy of your critical data saved off of the computer. Next, you should boot into safe mode (without networking), by hitting F8 repeatedly when the computer starts up, and scan with Spyware Doctor and/or your anti-virus software. Hopefully, they are both up-to-date. The current version of Spyware Doctor is 5.0. If you have any success, keep repeating scans until you come up clean. If you don't have any luck, download a 15-day trial of Counterspy 2.0 onto a clean computer, copy it to a thumb drive, then install to your infected computer -- probably after rebooting into windows (not safe mode). This should be able to clean your infection.

I hope this helps.
