Default Firewall won't stay enabled

I can click to enable the firewall, then in about 30-60 seconds something disables it.

Similar behavior for Norton AV 2004, when attempting to turn on auto-protect. But with the added behavior that the program is being terminated completely after a few seconds.

All settings seem okay for automatic enabled operation at startup.

Have run AV with latest def's in safe mode and detected no virus, worm or trojans.

This is recent behavior. Unfortunately don't have a restore point to go to. Any ideas?

The first entries I would look at a

SystemTray SysTray.Exe
WINDVDPatch CTHELPER.EXE
UpdReg C:\WINDOWS\UpdReg.EXE

These are all launched from:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run

Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT Go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run

Rght click on the Run subkey and select Export. This creates a backup =
of this particular subkey. After this is completed, right click each =
of the 3 values indicated, above and select Delete. Log off/logon or =
reboot. Check the HKLM\........... Run key again to see if any "new" =
values have been created. If not, rescan your system, ensuring that =
you have the latest updates for your AV program.

Default Firewall won't stay enabled

And, interestingly enough, the task manager won't stay open for more than about 30 seconds. And when I open the folder "c:\program files\norton antivirus" it, too, has only about 30 seconds to live. I'm convinced I've got something running that's looking
to shutdown security-related things. But I can't find it.

Default Firewall won't stay enabled

You have a virus. Likely one of the following:

W32.Klez

l

W32.Yaha

l

W32.Spybot.Worm
http://securityresponse.symantec.com...spybot.worm.h=
tml

For additional help see www.dougknox.com, Win XP Utilities, Create =
Emergency Copies of Critical XP System Utilities. This small VB Program =
will create backup, usable copies of Task Manger, Regedit and MSConfig =
(named Taskmgr1.exe, Regedit.com and MSConfig1.exe) in a new folder =
C:\EmergencyUtil. Many virus programs will intercept these programs, =
based on their original file name. The modified file names, allow them =
to be run. Open Windows Explorer to C:\EmergencyUtil and double click =
the application you need. The next revision will allow you to browse =
for the folder you want to place the backups in.

Additionally, see the Win XP Utilities section for Startup Programs =
Tracker. This small utility scans your system for startup programs and =
running processes. It also allows you to create a log file that can be =
copied and pasted into a newsgroup post. The contents of the program =
window are also copied to the Windows Clipboard, automatically. For =
replies to newsgroup posts, do NOT include the Running Services, unless =
its absolutely necessary.

Default Firewall won't stay enabled

It may not be what Symantec and others classify as a virus, but Adware =
or other "scumware". Usually, those that support detection of =
"scumware" will only notify you of it during a scan. The "real time" =
protection won't flag it (at least McAfee doesn't).

other things this critter does once it's infected a system.
