Need help desperate

I got a virus from a website that was linked to www.killsometime.com...I tried everything i knew to get rid of it but every 2 days it would reapear.

So I got a bit peeded off and decided to format the comp and start over and not reinstall anything that I had downloaded within the last month.

Well basically its all back again but a bit worse.....I dont mind formatting but I do mind the damn thing coming back any help would be brilliant THANKS Sad

Unless you can describe thee virus and how it manifests itself on your system it will be difficult to help you?

Did you actually reformat or just reinstalled windows. If you just reinstalled it would have retained all your previous files and most likely those that had been infected.

What have you tried to get rid of it as I'm sure you have not tried everything

Use the following instructions to remove spyaxe:

If the above does not remove it, use the more detailed smitfraud removal instructions linked in that article.

List of symptoms

1)homepage changed and was basically saying I was infected

2)dos box kept appearing and scrolling through some writing quickly

3)wallpaper turned blue with message saying need to clear virus before continuing using computer

I used adaware spybot search and destroy and Avg and something called windows security task manager which all 4 picked up many things probably missed many things too but it found a lot.

I also searched on the web for some of the things that was found to see if they installed stuff on the side.and deleted what i found but I did not save any of the relavent info to be able to tell you

Many thank yous Cheesy
