My system has a Spigot trojan. Malwarebytes id'd it and removed it, but SearchSettings.exe is re-launched at each boot. I followed the steps in the "T'm infected..." thread, but GMER ran for more than 3 hours, then froze my system, requiring a power off/on. I used RKUnhookerLE the 2nd time with Drivers and Stealth checked. Please take a look and advise as to what my next steps should be. Thanks very much.

1.Click Start > Settings > Control Panel.
2.Next, open Add/Remove Programs and remove if listed:
Spigot
IObit



Next:

When I looked at the program list, I saw IOBit Toolbar v 4.1, but not Spigot, even though Searchsettings started up at previous reboot. When I went to remove IOBit, I got a message that MS Windows Installer couldn't be accessed. I'm not sure whether that's related to the Spigot trojan, but I went to the MS site and followed instructions for reregistering the Installer, but I found that the MSIServer service was listed under ControlSet001, but not under CurrentControlSet, which is where MS said it should be. Rather than mess around blindly, I decided to use the alternate method from MS, and downloaded a new dist pkg from them and ran it. Seems to be working fine now, so I removed IOBit, ran ATFCleaner, and rebooted. The first thing I checked for was SearchSettings.exe running, and it isn't there. System is running much better now. Original symptoms were mostly things like low memory messages, occasionally programs taking a long time to load or failing to ever go active, scripts going "busy" or hanging. Is there anything further I should do in this instance?

Going forward, I have the free version of ZoneAlarm, run Malwarebytes regularly, use WOT, follow basic security rules regarding emails, downloads, etc. Should I be doing something, or installing something specific regarding trojans? They can be a real pain to get rid of as I'm sure you know:} Thanks.

I suggest you consider purchasing MalwareBytes Pro so it is a active protection program.
