Double-click on it and answer 'Yes' when asked if you want to merge with the registry. ----------------------------------------------------------- Other then the above, your logs look fine. Unless you are having problems from Malware it is time to do the final steps. If you used ComboFix, uninstall ComboFix: Click START then RUN and enter the below into the run box and then click OK. (Use only the command of the same name as your copy of combofix.) AvoidTDSS /u or combofix /u or Combo-Fix /u Note: The space before /u, must be there. Which command you use depends on if I had you rename ComboFix during download. This will uninstall ComboFix and also reset hidden files and folders settings back to Windows defaults. Delete the C:\AvoidTDSS or C:\ComboFix folder from combofix. Delete everything in C:\!KillBox Delete the following from your Desktop (If they exist) Avenger.exe Avenger.txt Avenger.zip DisableAutoRuns.reg FixMe.reg FixReg.reg ISeeYouXP.exe ISeeYouXP.lnk ISeeYouXP.txt Anything else I had you use Delete the following: (If they exist) C:\Avenger.txt C:\Avenger C:\ComboFix.txt C:\ComboFix C:\SDFix C:\Qoobox You can delete and uninstall any programs I had you download, that you do not wish to keep on the system.

  5. Some systems come with restore partitions, some come with restore DVDs and some come with installation media. Each Computer Manufacturer is different. You would have to look at your owners manual.
  6. Use the installation media that came with your computer, to do an inplace upgrade. You don't. This is a commercial board and advertisement of that nature would be considered spam. There is a profile field for adding things like your website.

  12. Copy the contents of the below quote box to Notepad; Save As FixReg.reg to your Desktop; make sure File Type: is set to All Files (*.*).

Double-click on it and answer 'Yes' when asked if you want to merge with the registry. ----------------------------------------------------------- Attach fresh logs for: ISeeYouXP HiJackFree Let me know of any problems you may have encountered with the above instructions and also let me know how things are running now!
  13. twinky, it wouldn't hurt to run the procedures and attach the resulting logs. There may not be any malware on the system, then again there could be. Only way to know is for me to review the logs.
  14. There appears to be a RootKit installed that is evading detection and causing anti-Rootkit tools to crash. At this point you should seriously consider backing up your information and performing a "Clean Install" of the Operating System.
  15. Run OTL.exe Copy/paste the following text written inside of the code box into the Custom Scans/Fixes box located at the bottom of OTL :OTL PRC - C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe (Microsoft Corporation) O1 - Hosts: 208.43.47.212 a1.review.zdnet.com O1 - Hosts: 208.43.47.212 reviews.riverstreams.co.uk O1 - Hosts: 208.43.47.212 d1.reviews.cnet.com O1 - Hosts: 208.43.47.212 review.2009softwarereviews.com O1 - Hosts: 208.43.47.212 reviews.download.com O1 - Hosts: 208.43.47.212 reviews.pcadvisor.co.uk O1 - Hosts: 208.43.47.212 reviews.pcmag.com O1 - Hosts: 208.43.47.212 reviews.pcpro.co.uk O1 - Hosts: 208.43.47.212 reviews.techradar.com O1 - Hosts: 208.43.47.212 toptenreviews.com O1 - Hosts: 208.43.47.212 www.reevoo.com :Files C:\WINDOWS\*.tmp C:\WINDOWS\System32\*.tmp :Commands [purity] [emptytemp] [resethosts] [start explorer] [Reboot] Then click the Run Fix button at the top Let the program run unhindered, reboot when it is done Attach the new OTL log ( don't check the boxes beside LOP Check or Purity this time )
  16. The small amount of system RAM installed on your system, is the main cause of performance problems. All an in-place upgrade is going to do is eliminate any OS issues that may be causing performance problems.
  17. Your logs show nothing that would explain the Google redirects. You should consider performing a "Clean Install" of the Operating System.
  18. Now we need to use ComboFix to remove some stuff. Make sure that the copy of combofix.exe that you downloaded earlier is on your Desktop but Do not run it! If it is not on your Desktop, the below will not work. Open Notepad and copy/paste the text in the below code box into it (make sure you scroll all the way down in the code box to get all lines selected ): KILLALL:: Registry:: [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045}] File:: C:\Users\LouiseF\AppData\Local\temp\B644.tmp\evP.exe Folder:: C:\Users\LouiseF\AppData\Local\temp\B644.tmp Save the above as CFscript.txt and make sure you save it to the same location (should be on your Desktop) as ComboFix.exe At this point, you MUST EXIT ALL BROWSERS NOW before continuing! You should have both the ComboFix.exe and CFScript.txt icons on your Desktop. Now use your mouse to drag CFscript.txt on top of ComboFix.exe Follow the prompts. When it finishes, a log will be produced named c:\combofix.txt I will ask for this log below Note: DO NOT mouseclick combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall. The ComboFix folder should not be renamed since ComboFix and even we would have suspicions about it. Also when you uninstall CF, the folder would not be removed since it does not look for that folder name. ----------------------------------------------------------- Attach fresh logs for: ComboFix (C:\combofix.txt) DDS Let me know of any problems you may have encountered with the above instructions and also let me know how things are running now!
  19. Download ComboFix from one of these locations: Save as Combo-Fix.exe during the download. ComboFix must be renamed before you download to your Desktop Link 1 Link 2 Link 3 * IMPORTANT !!! Save Combo-Fix to your Desktop Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools See HERE for help Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts. As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console. **Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures. Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message: Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware. When finished, ComboFix will produce a log. Note: 1. Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall! 2. Remember to re-enable your anti-virus and anti-spyware before reconnecting to the Internet. ----------------------------------------------------------- Attach fresh logs for: ComboFix (C:\combofix.txt) a-squared Free/Anti-Malware ISeeYouXP HiJackFree Let me know of any problems you may have encountered with the above instructions and also let me know how things are running now!
