    Default Malware Spybot does not appear to clean

    I have a machine that has been infected with malware, most likely a trojan, that Spybot appears to be unable to clean.


    Connects computer to various web sites, even when not loged on to the net, such as;

    Computer is running MS Windows 2000 sp4

    Actions taken;

    Run Updated Spybot S&D in Windows mode Spybot detects Smutfraud-C Clean using "Fix Selected Problems;

    Rerun Spybot on startup per instructions; Rerun Spybot on startup Spybot reports "no problem found" but problem immediately reocures.

    Recheck for Spybot updates; No new updates

    Reboot to "Safe Mode" Run Spybot in "Safe Mode" Smutfaud-c reported. RunFix Selected problems; all in "Safe Mode"

    Reboot computer to Normal Windows; problem reocures within 10 minutes.

    Any Suggestion on what to do?
