I found this over at Computing.Net in two seperate posts.
Comment:

I need help removing searchv from my system
This is what scanned:

Response Number 1
Reply:

Go here for a tutorial on your Log file:

Then you can fix it yourself.

Response Number 2
Reply:

BTW, get rid of all the 013's and 019's. Check the links for the R items. Get rid of any R13's (didn't see any there). That's a quickie. It's worth visiting the link above and printing yourself a copy of the "cheat sheet".

Another answer from a member in a different post. (The only answer)
Reply:

You should read your own logs. Post here if there are bits of the log you don't understand after reading the log software instruction manual

The thing that bothers me is no one corrected these Bozo's.
The poster's are probably Fubaring their PC's.
These are the links.

:D Computing.net does require a large number of competent helpers to handle the incoming load. There are a small number of competent helpers but it does fall short of the workload, and any assistance would be appreciated. :D

Thanks Trpm.

To give a quick update on that situation:
Computing.Net now has three helpers in the classroom that I know of,
which will improve the baseline a little.

But still at present, the existing quality of help relies on the replier who first picks up that post. Often some of the replies are miserably inappropriate.......sighs....

I would be delighted for any competent helper who would like to spend some time on the logs to trek on over to Computing.Net security and virus forum and pitch in. You will be very welcome. :D

And anyone who wants to train up in log analysis - You will get PLENTY of practise over there and will learn very fast!!! You will already be better than some who post " Then you can fix it yourself. " and " You should read your own logs." :rofl:

And then there are the good guys like Abnormal, who today used some cutting edge tools to help a victim,
and who should have the last word.

I learned from others at forums like this,
some links, and info at the homepage.
When I came here, I did not know how to
copy and paste. Helping others, I learn
something new every day.

Computing.net security post 8629

Thanks again, Trpm, and all, for your time.

iceblue, Thanks for the ego boost, but I'm not far from still being wet behind the ears when compared to most of the people that are helping in these forums. Have a nice day. :) Trpm

It's a fully manual system. :o Click on the 'add message to my computing.net list' at the top of a reply...or on the screen after a confirmed reply is sent. Find My Computing.Net in the left hand side bar and click it.....wait... Scroll down 4 or 5 kilometres. Make sure 'Show all messages is clicked' and voila...there they are... and a hidden message system as well.... :ph34r: hth :D Ice
