I've created a fix for this spyware, as Norton and Adaware could not do it. The file is triggerd by visiting a site, the file PreInsmt.exe is produced, and auto generates cab files with the same infected files in case anti-spyware gets it. The software adds about 40 registry entries, and once fully running steals control of your clipboard. This in my opinion is the dangerous part.  See also: Link Clock.
Was persistant, had to run Ad-Aware a few times and reboot to remove it. Spyware shows up as "VX2". This file was found in c:\winnt DM
Difficult to get rid of AdWare - Honest software Manufacturers dont make their software difficult to remove Charlie

It may be intended as adware, but it caused problems with IE, printing, and digital photos. Tried LOTS of things (incl XP repair). But the only thing that worked was running Spybot in 'immunize' mode took care of it. Please donate, I did. Adam
