Thank you, Autumn. Your step-by-step removal guide was absolutely essential. I'm running Windows XP SP3,
with Microsoft Security Essentials, which was unaware of this malware.
After performing your recommended steps, I did a search for
and found
the INSTALLER FILE in C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local settings\temporary Internet.
Search provided this file name: ?e=btos&pub, and checking properties of that file it showed:
the INSTALLER TITLE is: 51343eb9612ae[1].exe.
Also, in Google extensions its title is: Barowwsoe2save, which I turned off and removed, and then
my FINAL STEP was to open regedit and used find for Barowwsoe2save, found a single entry and
deleted it.
Hope this is useful to you, and thanks again,
