I have recently been infected with HAXDOOR on both my desktop and laptop 
computers. I use XOFT SPY
to remove the nasty thing, but it seems to come back, even though it says 
it's completely removed. When I reboot my computer, JAWS says it needs to 
make changes to my system, and it won't run until I reboot. Once rebooted, I 
usually have to manually begin running it. I also do a regscrub, clean all 
the cookies, temp files and temporary internet files. I empty the recycle 
bin, run Norton and NOD32. I can't get rid of HAXDOOR, and it seems to love 
playing tricks with my JAWS.  Has anyone had any success in completely 
removing this infection, and if so, what tools did you use? My next option 
is to completely reinstall Windows on both computers. BTW, does anyone have 
any info on how this is spread? I use an encrypted router, although it is a 
B wireless router, and I have the Windows Firewall running most of the time.
