I wouldn't really blame IE, but here are a few steps I would follow:
Ensure Windows is updated. If for whatever reason you can't go to SP2 (compatability maybe), at least get all other updates.
Update your AV Protection
Download MS Anti-Spyware and as a second, either Lavasoft Ad-Aware or Webroot Spysweeper. (these are my recommendations, others may give you supplemental progs to use).
Install and update your Anti-Spyware programs.
Boot into safe mode without networking
Delete all temp files, make sure you empty the recylce bin if you put them there, or use SHIFT + DEL and it will skip the bin entirely
Clean out the following directories:
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Temp
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\History
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\cookies
Once all are deleted, run a spyware scan to remove any junk. Once spyware has been removed, boot back into windows and do another spyware scan with whichever program you prefer. Reason being if your AV is setup properly, it will find any and all viruses "on-access" and remove them.
Reason you "keep getting" them is mostly because some viruses leave droppings behind, and are a pain to get rid of unless you kill all the sources.
I was getting those same virii while playing Battlefield 1942 on Gamespy. AVG free would pop up mid-game informing me it found the trojan as soon as it arrived. I use Outpost firewall and was allowing the game server full permissions so the rules box wouldn't pop up during the game. I guess some L4M3R was pushing me a trojan. I reviewed all the settings on my firewall, blocking, testing, unblocking if necessary, all the different apps and sys controls in Outpost until my normal net usage was unhindered. Then went into my Linksys router and did a port forwarding of 113 (IDENT) to a non-existent IP on my LAN (as well as some other ports) and further tightened down other constraints in the router's settings. Finally I can set it to "Allow Most" when gaming and not get trojaned and not have to worry about setting rules for each game server.
Would update to SP2 but cant be bothred at moment, dont really scan for Spyware thses days either another thing i cant be bothered to do but AVG Scans/Updates every morning so 1 out 3 anit bad lol :lick:
I think it just some dodgy site or when IE opens up it downloads them seeing has can go weeks with out getting them and some days delete them and come back
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
