    I ran adaware, spybot, and cwshredder and deleted everything. I didn't see anything under hijack this. However, when I do a netstat I see a connection to bns2.net, which is cydoor.com. Any idea why I still have this and how to get rid of it?

    Did you run the programs in safe mode with system restore disabled? That's your best bet at getting rid of something. Unles you can get rid of it, try adding a line to your hosts file to point bns2.net to 127.0.0.1 so at least it won't be able to phone home.

    I haven't tried safe mode yet. However, everything hijack this and spybot found it said it deleted, no errors. It's not on startup. Good idea about the hosts though for now, thanks.

    (actually it picked up more then adaware and spybot did, weird lol)
