Hi chaworth

Please download Look2Me-Destroyer.exe to your desktop and close all windows before continuing.

Doubleclick Look2Me-Destroyer.exe to run it and put a check next to Run this program as a task.

You will receive a message saying Look2Me-Destroyer will close and re-open in approximately 10 seconds. Click OK. When Look2Me-Destroyer re-opens, click the Scan for L2M button, your desktop icons will disappear, this is normal.

Once it's done scanning, click the Remove L2M button. You will receive a Done Scanning message, click OK.

When completed, you will receive this message: Done removing infected files! Look2Me-Destroyer will now shutdown your computer, click OK. Your computer will then shutdown.

Restart your computer and please post the contents of C:\Look2Me-Destroyer.txt and a new HijackThis log.

If you receive a message from your firewall about this program accessing the internet please allow it.

If you receive a runtime error '339' please download MSWINSCK.OCX from the link below and place it in your C:\Windows\System32 Directory.

Yep that seems to have fixed the infection...

Did you install this...If  not uninstall it.

O9 - Extra button: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program Files\PartyGaming\PartyPoker\RunApp.exe

If you wish to do so, here are a few things that you can do that will help keep your computer a bit more cleaner and a bit more safer..

If you have not already done so, you might want to run   Disk Cleanup and run it in each user's profile:

Run Disk Cleanup
Click "Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup"
Please make sure the following are checked:
-- Downloaded Program Files
-- Temporary Internet Files
-- Recycle Bin
-- Temporary Files
Click "OK" and Disk Cleanup will delete those files for you.


Now that you are clean its now is a good time to  flush out your restored files.

To flush the XP System Restore Points:
(Using XP, you must be logged in as Administrator to do this.)
Go to Start>Run and type msconfig Press enter.
When msconfig opens, click the Launch System Restore Button.
On the next page, click the System Restore Settings Link on the left.
Check the box labeled Turn Off System Restore.

Reboot. Go back in and turn System Restore ON. A new Restore Point will be created.

How Do I Protect My Computer Against Future Malware Now I'm Clean.

NOTE:You may have already taken some of these steps.

Update your anti-virus software & Windows operating system on a daily or weekly basis. Microsoft also distributes updates to its operating systems. These updates fix security holes or other problems that make a computer susceptible to security breaches.  How to update your Windows operating system

Know What You're Installing
Check the source.
To avoid malware, make sure your software comes from a reputable source. Be particularly suspicious of sponsored software (software that relies on advertising) or software that claims to speed up your Internet connection.

Use Custom Install.
If you feel comfortable with software installation, you can choose Custom Install (as opposed to Typical Install). Custom Install allows you to select only the software components you wish to install, and leave out others (such as potential spyware).

Modify Security Settings (Internet Explorer 6)
To reduce the risk of installing malware, you can set Internet Explorer to high security mode. To do so:

Open Internet Explorer. Go to Tools > Internet Options
