client has a fairly new dell with XP/sp2.
using free addition of avg and spybot 1.3/adaware se/hijackthis to keep it clean.
AVG keeps detecting a trojan(dont remember exact name) but file is msdirectx.
cannot open regedit/msconfig etc unless i do the rename. also effecting broadband internet although it works but slow.
I run hijackthis and see entries for bitdefenderx/IPOT...compaq.exe. about 6 entries in all.
i remove them but when i run hijack scan again they reappear.
what else i have done:
booted in safe mode
removed all entries in reg with IPOT/compaq/bitdefenderx/msdirectx
searched hd for all entries above also(i am showing hidden files) and deleted
ran cleanmgr. also restore util is turned off
but when i reboot it all comes back?
searched internet but not much in the way of help is out there.
this is a tough one!
