Hey all,

I got this gateway laptop. It has a nasty bug in it. Popups everywhere.

Spybot ain't working on it. Can't see anything out of the ordinary in Highjackthis.

It creates a directory in the C:/Windows called "Ehome" all the time. there is a bigger problem somewhere cause when I delete this folder in safe mode it comes back again,

What other steps can I take with this?


Thanks,

Heeter

I would not delete that directory (Ehome) its the Media Center directory.

I have tried to remove the ehome directory before, and it just gets recreated when the popups restart.

That is where they are hiding, the trojans, among other places.

I will post a Highjackthis log after.

Are you sure it's spyware? The ehome directory is part of Windows Media Center.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
