I have a system that was infected with some spyware. in particular mightymax spyware.
This seems to have been removed as i cannot find any further reference to this searching files and folders or registry, have gone through several websites that advise how to remove it. All seems to be good.
Problem is that evertime windows xp is restarted the .exe files do not load. I can access internet explorer. i have downloaded .exe fix from dougknox. This fixes the issue until re-booted then it returns.
I have ran almost every spyware scanner i can think of. Malwarebytes, adaware se, super antispyware, spybot, Paid version of spydoctor. All comes up clean. I have completely disabled startup items. Not fixed.
Can anyone suggest what else i could try,
I have deleted temp files several times, i have checked the services and couldnt see anything bad in there.
If this helps, it only happens when computer restarts, if i log off then log in it works fine.
