    Very important: Before deciding whether to clean or reformat your system, read this thread and decide what you want to do.

    If, after reading the above thread, you decide to clean your system, read the Viruses/spyware/malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions to the letter, then post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread.

    Be sure to follow the instructions in the last link I gave for moving and renaming HijackThis.
    Regards :)

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You did not post an AVG Antispyware log as requested. Please do so in your next reply.

    Your system has a lop infection.

    Please Download NoLop to your desktop from one of the links below...
    http://www.spywareedge.net/nolop/NoLop.exe
    http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/...pmod;dl=item16

    First close any other programs you have running as this will require a reboot
    Double click NoLop.exe to run it
    Now click the button labelled "Search and Destroy"
    <<your computer will now be scanned for infected files>>
    When scanning is finished you will be prompted to reboot only if infected, Click OK
    Now click the "REBOOT" Button.
    A Message should popup from NoLop.
    If not, double click the program again and it will finish.

    --If you receive an error, "mscomctl.ocx or one of its dependencies are not correctly registered," please download mscomctl.ocx to your system32 folder then rerun the program.-- http://www.boletrice.com/downloads/mscomctl.ocx

    Post the C:\Nolop.log as well as an AVG Antispyware log and a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.


    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    Newreadme.exe

    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: Trixie.Bho - {B0744341-96E0-4341-9ED2-8BC36CE0CCD0} - mscoree.dll (file missing)

    O2 - BHO: WebManager Class - {D5792AA9-D373-4039-8670-2CDAB6A71F15} - C:\Program Files\Torrent101\TorrentManager.dll (file missing)

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [two bin] C:\DOCUME~1\Josh\APPLIC~1\CREATI~1\Newreadme.exe

    O7 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System, DisableRegedit=1

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\DOCUME~1\Josh\APPLIC~1\CREATI~1\Newreadme.exe

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log and an AVG Antispyware log is you can. Also let us know if you`re still having problems.

    Regards Howard :)
